Is “Denali” a next verion of SQL Server?

Question!

While tracking a site I came to know that Microsoft has launched a new server for SQL LINK

My queries:

Is "Denali" is SQL SERVER 2011 ? I mean is it a stand alone server or just a feature addition to SQL Server 2008?

If "Denali" is new version of SQL Server. Than do I need to uninstall SQL Server 2005 [which is present in my system] before installing "Denali" ?



Answers

Yes, it is a beta version, not final before several months.

Is "Denali" is SQL SERVER 2011

Maybe, maybe not. Maybe it is SQL Server 2012, or MS decides to change naming. It IS, though, asi t sas clearly on the side, the next generation of SQL Server.

I mean is it a stand alone server or just a feature addition to SQL Server 2008?

MS always has code names for in development technology, and if you read the side it is clear it is next generation SQL Server.

Than do I need to uninstall SQL Server 2005 [which is present in my system] before installing "Denali" ?

Given that since 2000 or 2005 SQL Server supports multiple installs in different instances side by side- no, you do not need. tHat said, if you isntall Denali and your syste mbreaks you join the line of people realizing that MS is serious about "do not install beta technology on productive systems":

You are better off installing SQL 2008 R2.

"Denali" is the next edition of SQL Server it is not a new feature of SQL Server 2008.

I wouldn't have thought you would need to un-install SQL 2005 as you can usually install different editions on the same machine.

Having said that, this is a beta version released as a Community Technology Preview. I would recommend that you install this on to a test machine or if you have one a VM environment.
