We’re excited to announce that SQL Server StreamInsight is officially shipping as a component of SQL Server 2008 R2, which is scheduled to be available in H1 2010. StreamINsight brings a low-latency complex event processing (CEP) platform to SQL Server, and will enable organizations to derive insights from streaming data in near real-time in scenarios such as web analytics, algorithmic trading and industrial process control.

 

TechNet and MSDN subscribers can get the preview of SQL Server StreamInsight immediately. And according to the SQL server News Blog, The CTP will be generally available on the TechNet Evaluation Center tomorrow, August 19.

 

Also available today is the first community technology preview of SQL Azure Database, a cloud-based relational database service built on Microsoft SQL Server technologies. SQL Azure Database enables you to provision and deploy relational database solutions to the cloud, and take advantage of a globally distributed data center that provides enterprise-class availability, scalability, and security with the benefits of built-in data protection, self-healing and disaster recovery. Register here for the free trial.

 

More to come,
