The RC1 of SQL Server 2017 has been released!

Hello SQL Folks!

I’m happy to announce we Microsoft released RC1 of SQL Server 2017. There are lot of cool features in this release. I bet you know that SQL Server 2017 = SQL Server on Linux but there are more than only this. Of course, the ability to run it on Linux is the most welcome feature.

Let me name the top 3 feature I really like the most:

  • resumable index rebuild
  • automatic database tuning
  • new graph database capabilities

Take a look at other features. The complete list is here.

You can try the version now but I can promise that it is not everything 🙂 and some other things will come into the light soon.

Two very useful links:

You can find great summary of what has been improved in this release on the official SQL Server Blog page.


Cheers, happy playing 🙂
