SQL Server Land
A week is a long time in SQL Server land. This week I have been busy working on a version migration for one particular customer and looking at security, 'productionising' some servers and troubleshooting connectivity issues for another. As is usual for me no day has been the same.
It’s been a busy week. Despite this, I didn't miss the release of SQL Server 2019 CTP 2.2 - SQL Server 2019 promises to offer much in the real time data analytic field. At some point, likely the new year, I will spend some time exploring the new version to see it in greater detail, so I can understand what new features will be beneficial for my clients and customers going forward.
You can read about the new features in SQL Server 2019 and also download SQL Server 2019 CTP 2.2 here on the Microsoft website.
With a new SQL Server version being released in 2019, and also a more likely driver for upgrading, is SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2 going out extended support with Microsoft in the new year. Many of my clients will be looking to upgrade their SQL Server version in 2019. To ensure they are on a supported version of SQL Server.
