At the recent PASS Summit, Microsoft announced the release of SQL Server 2008 R2 Parallel Data Warehouse (formerly project Madison) , and  Project Atlanta, to help better configure SQL instances, and the first public CTP of the next version of SQL Server, version 11 with the  code name  Denali, (which I assumne  will  be released toward the back  end of next year as SQL Server 2011. )

This week we have lots of blogs from all around the SQL Server community where it seems that there are already quite a few people working with the product. MVPs could download it a week or so ago, and I’m sure quite a few of them were looking for changes and waiting until the public release to blog their impressions.

Denali will introduce the  Project Hadron enhancements. move database mirroring to new technology that for improved failover, and more options,  to better  your systems and data,  so if you need ETL process support, then start  migrating your packages to SSIS. TS support, is also removed in Denali

A new ad hoc reporting and data visualization experience codenamed “Project Crescent” is introduced and a new Business Intelligence Semantic Model (BISM) in Analysis Services that will power Crescent as well as other Microsoft BI front end tools : Excel, Reporting Services and SharePoint Insights.
