Microsoft SQL Server Coming to Linux

Category: Software
Posted: 04:44PM

Microsoft has announced plans to make its SQL Server database software available to Linux users for the first time. A move like this indicates that Microsoft "is now prioritizing the sale of its database software over the sale of the operating system running beneath it." This sentiment was echoed by CEO Satya Nadella who stated, "Our most strategic asset is not the server operating system." Users can start evaluating the software with a preview version now, with a full release expected during the middle of next year. The move could help Microsoft better compete against the many other offerings that are available, both open source and proprietary, a thought shared by IDC's enterprise infrastructure VP Al Gillen who "would expect this will also accelerate the overall adoption of SQL Server."
