SQL Server “Denali”

SQL Server “Denali” is the code name for the next version of SQL Server.  The CTP1 of Denali was released on Nov 8, 2010, and you can download here.  The next CTP will be available this summer.

I will have future posts that will cover the following major new items in Denali: the new SSAS features, the new SQL Server Developer Tools, codename ‘Juneau”, and the new reporting tool called Project Crescent.  In the meantime, here are the best resources I have found that describe the new features:
