This week Microsoft made the v.next version of SQL Server for Linux available in the public preview. It has been a couple of years since I have worked with Linux, but I am excited and going to give it a try.

Also this week we released the SQL Data Partners weekly podcast, and this weeks episode was with Travis Wright. Travis is the program manager for the SQL Server transition to SQL Server on Linux.

Some of the topics covered in the podcast:

  • Why are they adding a Linux version of SQL Server.
  • What features are going to be supported.
  • The version of Linux supported.
  • What type of integrations are now possible – think WordPress on SQL Server.
  • How do I kick the tires on this?


Personally I am looking forward to this. I just installed Ubuntu Linux, the next step is to install SQL Server on Linux. I will follow up with more details once I have it working on Linux.
