SQL SERVER – Next Version of SQL Server ‘Denali’ is Officially Named as SQL Server 2012

Recently I attended SQLPASS 2011 and it had few announcements and some of them really important. I am going to write in detail in future all the announcements. However, there is one announcement needs special attention and blog post. The official name of the next version of the SQL Server. So far we were all addressing the next version of the SQL Server as SQL Server ‘Denali’.

Microsoft VP Ted Kummert announced the official name of the next version of the SQL Server – SQL Server 2012. The version of the SQL Server will be 11. The release date is estimated in the first half of the year 2012. Here are two important updates which are related to SQL Server 2012.

  • Apache Hadoop will power Azure Cloud Services and Windows Deployments.
  • New touch-based data exploration capabilities will be extended to other devices.

Additionally, SQL Server Crescent project also got new name as Power View. A new Data Explorer tool will be also released that will make it easier to browse and use data from public-cloud data sources. There is a blog post from SQL Server Team on roadmap on big data.
