Microsoft SQL Server Code Name “Denali” CTP3 (Community Technology Preview 3) now available for evaluation

Yesterday, Microsoft released the next public CTP of SQL Server Code Name “Denali”. This release includes Business Intelligence (BI) improvements and innovations for relational databases as well as for BI solutions.

In an MSDN blog post;

SQL Server “Denali” builds on what we started with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2. On the relational database side, Project “Apollo” leverages the VertiPaq technology we first introduced in SQL Server 2008R2 for blazing-fast query performance. On the BI side, Denali complements self-service analysis with self-service reporting through PowerPivot and Project “Crescent”, as well as self-service alerting with SSRS in SharePoint integrated mode. It provides the foundation to the cloud-ready information platform and will help customers unlock breakthrough insights across the organization and quickly build solutions that extend data across on-premises and public/private clouds backed by exciting new capabilities for greater mission critical confidence.
