The SQL Server 2008 R2 August Community Technology Preview (CTP) is released with Microsoft SQL Server StreamInsight August CTP. SQL Server StreamInsight is now officially shipping as a component of SQL Server 2008 R2, which’s scheduled to be available in H1 2010. StreamInsight’ll bring a low-latency complex event processing (CEP) platform to SQL Server, and’ll enable organizations to derive insights from streaming data in near real-time in scenarios such as web analytics, algorithmic trading and industrial process control. With SQL Server StreamInsight, customers and partners realize faster time to solution and equal or better performance and manageability than competitive alternatives. SQL Server StreamInsight allows organizations to process continuous high volume streams of data with low latency in milliseconds. What differentiates our platform even more is the ability for customization; customers and partners can use their own proprietary algorithms to build custom applications, ISVs can build industry specific solutions and embedded system developers can offer low latency processing. The preview’s available for TechNet and MSDN subscribers, and public.
