SQL, AppFrame and other cool technologies

SQL Server 2008 R2

R2 has finally hit RTM (Release To Manufacturing). Is it worth upgrading? Always! But there aren’t many changes that’s not related to the BI (Business Intelligence) part. Here are the keywords: Better SQL Azure compatibility, support for 256(!!!) logical processors. 2008 “only” supported 64. SSMS dashboards.

They’ve also done a couple of things regarding licensing. Datacenter and Parallel Data Warehouse editions have been introduced. Oh, yeah and Express Edition will now support up to 10GB databases, instead of 4GB.
