SQL Server 2008 Grid vR2 !

As you may know I’m abit of a SQL Server nut so I was particularly interested in the announcement at the recent TechEd of SQL Server 2008 R2.

R2 is the combination of the Kilimanjaro, Madison and Gemini projects.

Kilimanjaro is adding support for up to 256 processors to the existing code base.

Whilst Madison follows on from the purchase of DataAllegro last year moving data to handling petabytes of data.

Lastly Gemini is about taking on Qlikview and providing Analysis Services using column-oriented in-memory technologies running inside Excel 2010.

A CTP version of R2 is expected this July.
