Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 has finally arrived

The final polished product has fianlly arrived. Now I can drop the November-CTP tagged on to the product and makes it more final-like.
Well, this is the product that will make SQL Azure more amenable to the on-site dbas. Let us see how well it works with SSIS and SSRS line of products. I am sure the deficiencies of the CTP has been completly remedied. In my last post I used the CTP to rename a SQL Azure database and did not succeed. Probably the final product would do the trick.

Well if you are a SQL Server junkie you may want to test drive the SQL Server 2008 R2 Hosted Trial here. You can help yourself to a number of other products as well (total of 7 labs).
