Katmai release

I’m at the Microsoft BI Conference in Seattle and Jeff Raikes announced the next version of SQL Server, codenamed “Katmai” will be out sometime next year.

This seems interesting to me since a lot of the customers that I know of are still using SQL 2000 and are working right now to migrate to 2005.  It will be interesting to see if customers are able to get migrated and then be willing to start over again by upgrading to a new version of SQL.

I suppose some will skip 2005 and go to Katmai anyways.

Jeff announced that among other things that Katmai will have support for storing unstructured data in the form of documents.  It will be interesting to see how this takes shape.
