SQL Server ODBC Driver for Linux Now Available!

Microsoft SQL Server ODBC Driver for LinuxThe first beta of the SQL Server ODBC Driver for Linux is released. The ODBC for Windows driver (a.k.a. SQL Server Native Client, or SNAC) to the Linux platform provides a Microsoft-supported solution for C and C++ applications that target SQL Server.

It also provides a mechanism for applications and runtimes that leverage ODBC to access SQL Server from Linux platforms.

For customers who want to move from Sybase to SQL Server, the SQL Server ODBC Driver for Linux allows C and C++ code to continue running in Linux environments.

“This release will be a 64-bit driver for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. We will support SQL Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2012 with this release of the driver,” revealed Microsoft SQL Server team.

Adding, the team said, “Notable driver features (in addition to what you would expect in an ODBC driver) include support for the Kerberos authentication protocol, SSL and client-side UTF-8 encoding.’

This release also brings proven and effective tools and the BCP and SQLCMD utilities to the Linux world.

You can download the SQL Server ODBC Driver for Linux from Microsoft Download Center.
