Microsoft just announced that they are going to support SQL Server on Linux! Yup, that’s true. They also say private preview of SQL Server is already available starting today for customers who are interested. It’s hard to believe me right…Well head over to this blog post and see it for yourself.
If what I am seeing is really true, well, for all the guys who says” SQL Server is not secure(We good DBA’s know how to keep it secure)…It only runs on Windows…blah blah” better stop saying that from now on 🙂
For an early look and to sign up for this head over to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/sql-server-on-linux.aspx and sign up.
I really hope this is not some prank! Any ways…it’s time to brush up my Linux Skills….Voilaaa.
Update – SQL Server 2016 very first Release Candidate(RC 0 ) has been announced as well today. I sense RTM is coming soon 🙂 Happy SQLing!!!
