Finally installed SQL Server 2014 CTP1
Last month I posted the availability of the first Community Test Preview (CTP-1) of SQL Server 2014, [link].
As mentioned officially by Microsoft this preview (CTP-1) should be installed on a fresh OS (Windows 8 or Server 2012) and not with existing Dev machine. So, some days back I finally managed to get an isolated machine and installed on it. The Installation is similar to SQL Server 2012, only difference is the version number till now.
–> On checking the “Tables” section on Object Explorer it gives you option to create “Memory Optimized Tables”:
… but this is not graphical (like Create Table), it provides a Script template and opens it in SQL Query Editor.
–> On checking the “Stored Procedures” section on Object Explorer it gives you option to create “Natively Compiled Stored Procedures”:
… and just like “Create Procedure” it also provides a Script template and opens it in SQL Query Editor.
Next post I’ll come with some hands-on with Creating a Database, Memory Optimized tables and new things introduced in SQL Server 2014.
