SQL Server 2008 Hits In August

Filed under: DAILY Dose of PC News 

Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference in Houston today had some exciting announcements including the long awaited rollout of SQL Server 2008. Reports claim that Microsoft will release the much anticipated release in August 2008. Several key Microsoft reps were there to announce further details on products that we’ve been waiting to get released for quite some time.

According to ZDNet, Microsoft “officially ‘launched’ SQL Server 2008 in February, alongside Visual Studio 2008 and Windows Server 2008. Earlier this year, Microsoft officials said they were planning to deliver SQL Server 2008 by mid-2008. Company officials changed their guidance a couple of months ago, noting that Microsoft was planning to deliver the final SQL Server 2008 release in the third calendar quarter of 2008.”

Bob Kelly, Microsoft Corporate Vice President of Infrastructure Server Marketing, stated at the conference that they’re planning to launch some “official virtualization” event in September during its meetings in Seattle, WA. These came on the heels of Kelly talking about Microsoft releasing Visual Studio 2008 and Windows Server 2008 on November 12th of this year as well.
