Microsoft posted a raft of software previews today, including the CTPs or community technology previews for SQL Server Azure Database bits and SQL Server StreamInsight. The latter will be a component of SQL Server 2008 R2, due in the first half of 2010. The CTP for the overall database posted last week.
StreamInsight, according to Microsoft, will add a “low-latency complex event processing (CEP) platform to SQL Server, and will enable organizatons to derive insights from streaming data in near real-time in scenarios such as web analytics, algorithmic trading and industrial process control.”
