A place for my thoughts and experiences the Microsoft Data Platform

SQL Server 2012 RTM Available!

SQL Server 2012 is available for download!

The Evaluation version is available here:

and along with the SQL Server 2012 RTM there’s also the Feature Pack available:

The Feature Pack is rich of useful and interesting stuff, something needed by some feature, like the Semantic Language Statistics Database some other a very good (I would say needed) download if you use certain technologies, like MDS or Data Mining. Btw, for Data Mining also the updated Excel Addin has been released and it’s available in the Feature Pack.

As if this would not be enough, also the SQL Server Data Tools IDE has been released in RTM:

Remember that SQL Server Data Tool is completely free and can be used with SQL Server 2005 and after.

Happy downloading!
