Enterprise benefits following SSDS?

July 20, 2008 | Tony Bain

While SSDS doesn’t appear to have an immediate significant impact for the enterprise, the key thing to keep in mind is underneath the SSDS offering Microsoft is running SQL Server in a “grid” style architecture.  One would assume that the learning’s and technology Microsoft has developed in putting together the SSDS platform will flow through to the wider SQL Server product on a future release.  While there are no specific Grid capabilities in the upcoming SQL Server 2008 release, let’s hope that the long overdue, game leveling cloud enabling feature becomes a reality in the next release of SQL Server due 2010/2011.
