Summary of SQL Server 2008 - SQL Server 2008

SQL Server 2008 contains a series of improvements that target scalability, performance, availability, security, and manageability. Keep in mind that some of the improvements mentioned in this book target and benefit multiple scenarios. Data compression is a prime example. When using data compression in the business intelligence scenario, the primary benefit is disk-space savings, since databases used for analytical processing tend to have many repeating and null values. Thus, this feature could have also been discussed in the Performance that covers Analysis Services.

This is based on the feature-complete February community technology preview (CTP) release of SQL Server 2008. As with any product that is not shipped, there may some minor changes in the user interfaces shown in this book’s screenshots by the time the final version is released.
