SQL Server 2008 R2

November 10th, 2009 by Stephen Jones Leave a reply »

SQL Server has new benchmark records: TPC-E: 2,012 tpsE – best speed on x64 & IA64 at lowest price.  TPC-H 3TB: 102,778 QphH – world-record on Windows. Dynamix CRM: 20K users with sub-second response time.  Impressive speed that many of us will never be able to (or need to achieve), but there is a subtler realization from this announcement: TPC results must be issued six months within the release of the product.  This means SQL Server 2008 R2 will RTM by the beginning of May! 

Builder 3.0 will support integration with scale out data warehousing as a source and also include Report Gallery capabilities (reuse items from a repository like charts), sparklines, and data bars

lots lots more features
