Microsoft prepares for worldwide launch of Visual Studio, SQL Server and BizTalk Server 2006
Posted on 5-Jul-2005 23:25 | Filed under: News



More details surrounding the launch of Microsoft SQL Server 2005, Visual Studio 2005 and BizTalk Server 2006 were announced during the Tech Ed 2005 Europe.

As part of his keynote address, Andy Lees, corporate vice president of Server and Tools Marketing and Solutions, announced that these products would launch on Monday, 7 November in San Francisco.

Microsoft revealed that throughout November there would be more than 90 launch events spanning 50 countries.

"The launch of SQL Server 2005, Visual Studio 2005 and BizTalk Server 2006 will truly be a global launch. We will kick off the availability of these products in San Francisco and carry it through Europe and the rest of the world in the following days and weeks," Lees said. "These products mark a new generation of platforms for connected systems, and are not only designed to work better together, but will enable customers to better connect with existing systems, trading partners, customers and employees."

Microsoft is deploying SQL Server 2005 internally, with more than 80 applications that store and analyze multiple terabytes of data. Global systems integrators and IT services companies also announced plans to build process-oriented methodologies on top of Visual Studio 2005 Team System, guiding software project teams in the delivery of enterprise-ready solutions.

Microsoft also announced two new TPC-H benchmarks from Bull and Unisys Corp. In the first TPC-H benchmark using SQL Server 2005, Unisys set a record for 32 CPU performance in the 1TB category (Unisys ES7000 Orion 440 Enterprise Server, 21506 QphH@1000GB, 41.92 $/QphH).

Bull also released its second TPC-H benchmark with SQL Server 2005, showing higher performance with good relation price/performance (Bull NovaScale 5160, 13769 QphH@1000GB, 32.49 $/QphH).

The company is making the JDBC Driver available for download. The SQL Server 2005 Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) Driver enables Java/J2EE applications on any platform to interoperate with SQL Server.
