SQL Server 2012 Released and a Free EBook

March 12, 2012

SQL Server 2012 was released last weekend (and yes, I know this means I’m late to blog about it!). Along with it were released the Data Mining Add-In for Excel 2010 (with a 64 bit version) and PowerPivot v2.0.

The ”Introducing Microsoft SQL Server 2012 (second DRAFT preview)” EBook was released in January and is free to download – enjoy!
