    Default Announcing Microsoft SQL Server On Linux

    Announcing SQL Server on Linux
    You’ve asked and we’re delivering. It’s our next step to make SQL Server the best data management and business analytics platform—for any data, any application, on any platform.
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/serv...ts/sql-server/

    Microsoft on Monday issued a release candidate (RC0) of its upcoming SQL Server 2016 database system, as well as announced its plans to enable SQL Server to run on Linux.

    "This will enable SQL Server to deliver a consistent data platform across Windows Server and Linux, as well as on-premises and cloud," said Scott Guthrie, executive vice president of Microsoft's Cloud and Enterprise Group, in a blog post. "We are bringing the core relational database capabilities to preview today, and are targeting availability in mid-2017."

    Linux continues to bring value to the enterprise.

    I am certified on SQL Server administration for SQL Server 2008 and 2012. I am looking forward to the 2016 certification on Linux. I suspect Microsoft will keep a standard administration exam and then recognize an existing certification by one of the Linux certification bodies. That is the approach they have taken with Linux on Azure.

    Interesting times ahead. Will Microsoft one day support their ERP systems like Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains) on a Linux server? Years ago, Great Plains used to run on the Pervasive SQL database. I installed Pervasive for Linux on a Linux server and got Great Plains to work seamlessly with Windows workstations. That configuration was never supported by Microsoft, however.

    It should be interesting to see what the developers at SAP do with this.

    Here is some additional information

    couple question.

    Do you prefer MS SQL over MySQL?

    What exam did you take to become certified for SQL Server administration for SQL Server 2008 and 2012?

    I have no preference. Both of them work well.

    I have more experience with MS SQL Server. In addition to database maintenance, I often have to create reports using SQL Server Reporting Services.

    Ok will check it out.

    I used both, mainly for mobile app dev. Your use case seems different.

    For me I prefer MySQL. he APIs work better for mobile and it is free.

    Arch Angel says that the best software is the one that meets your needs. I agree with him.

    MS SQL Server is used as the database for several popular business applications.

    You can download MS SQL Express for free at www.microsoft.com/downloads. It has most of the features of SQL Server workgroup and standard. It is limited to 10 concurrent users and a maximum database size of 10 GB. I know of companies that have been using it in production for several years.

    MSSQL is also a good solution. This is not the Highlander movie. In that movie people go around saying "There can be only one"
