Dopo il recente rilascio RTM di Microsoft SQL Server 2008, pochi giorni fa ne è stata resa nota la definitiva compatibilità e supportabilità con Sharepoint.
Attenzione… necessita di uno Sharepoint SP1
Windows SharePoint Service 3.0
Office SharePoint Server 2007
Office SharePoint Server 2007 supports SQL Server 2008. However, you must install Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SP1 or later and Office SharePoint Server 2007 SP1 or later before you install SQL Server 2008.
Alte info e vantaggi:
1. Improved Manageability
Manageability and governance is important for SharePoint as well as the SQL Server database engine. Now administrators can also benefit from the new management features introduced in SQL Server 2008 – from Policy-based administration to back-up compression. For details, please refer to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc645579(SQL.100).aspx.
2. High Availability
Availability in SQL Server 2008 has been improved through enhancements in data mirroring. For details, please refer to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc645581(SQL.100).aspx.
3. Enhanced Data Security
The SQL Server 2008 database engine introduced new encryption functions that enhance security. SharePoint administrators can take advantage of these new encryption features by simply turning on transparent data encryption (TDE). No additional changes need to be made on the SharePoint side. For details, please refer to http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc645578(SQL.100).aspx.
