SQL Server 2008 to Launch February 27th, 2008

By Bill Graziano on 10 July 2007 | 1 Comment | Tags: SQL Server 2008 Release


Microsoft announced at the partner conference today that SQL Server 2008, Visual Studio 2008 and Windows Server 2008 will launch on February 28th, 2008 in Los Angeles. I read in another blog that the products would RTM and ship before the end of the year. My best guess was that SQL Server 2008 would arrive in November 2008. It appears we'll see it much sooner than that. It appears this will be a smaller release than I thought it would be. I guess that's to be expected given given how long SQL Server 2005 took and how many features were included.

Update: I'm hearing conflicting information about when SQL Server 2008 is actually going to RTM. It may actually be AFTER the February 27th launch.
