TechEdOne of the announcements that came out of this years TechEd which I'm particularly excited about is the announcement of the next version of SQL Server.

SQL Server 2008 improvements are based on 4 pillars.

1) Mission Critical

Using the new Database Mirroring feature to seamlessly increase the reliability of applications. Simplifies the recovery of applications from storage failures along with providing the ability to add system resources like CPU and memory without affecting applications.

2) Not Just Relational

Manages any type of data from relational data to documents, geographic information and XML. Offers a consistent set of services and tools across data types.

3) Business Insight

Brings powerful BI capabilities and valuable data even closer to every user. Empower users to easily consume information due to increased integration with Microsoft Office. Provides reports of any size or complexity internally within organizations and externally to partners and suppliers.

4) Dynamic Development for Data Management Solutions

Provides an integrated development environment with Microsoft Visual Studio and .NET Framework that will accelerate development of new applications with a higher level of data abstraction. Enables developers to synchronize data from virtually any device to the central data store.
