I agree, Multi Server administration was available pre-2008 r2. However, what is new is the SQL Server Utility for managing performance data and management policies.

So technically the answer of "Multi Server Administration" is not correct.

Interesting that it entirely misses support for the Cloud, which was the main reason for the refresh...

Thanks for the question.

Though I think it would have been better as a multi-select question. (Of course that would have caused more problems with the multi-server administration option.)

Multi-server admin was added in 2008 and is technically NOT a SQL Server feature but an SSMS feature.

Yeah, that BOL article is misleading, I would argue that PowerPivot is completely unrelated to SQL Server 2008 R2, it depends on Excel 2010 and is a separate web download into that tool, you can use that without using SQL Server at all. Was pretty sure the Multiserver admin was already there too, but that's not my strong suit.


I agree with you, Power Pivot is a an addon to Excel 2010 and is built on VertiPac, but in Denali the VertiPac will be implemented in SSAS and it will be implemented in the project Crescent.
