Poll: When do you plan to use SQL Server 2008 in production?


I asked this question last year around this time, and I’m curious to see what the changes have been.  This doesn’t refer to the upcoming SQL Server 2008 R2, but just SQL Server 2008:

  • Already in production on some,the rest will be done before Dec 15

  • We were planning to get a new db server w/ sql 2008 around the first of the year but due to budget cuts we’re on a hardware/software hold for prob the next 12 to 18 months.

  • We’re actually a 3rd party that is application support. It’s not our call whether to go SQL Server 2005 or 2008. Presently only one customer, a new one/new installation, decided to go SQL Server 2008. Uncertain at this time if others plan to migrate.

    Our biggest obstacle was SQL 2008 support for backup and the applications using SQL. Most of our vendors either was slow to adapt to SQL 2008 or just didn’t inform about SQL 2008 support. Even Microsoft have problems with supporting newer versions of their products, either directly through not supporting the new version or indirectly by not updating documentation about getting applications to work. I really missed some kind of SQL Server 2008 technet center where I could see what Microsoft applications was supported and how to get there.
    Otherwise it has been a great experience, though some management features are missing compared to earlier versions. We experienced a major performance drop with one critical application where we had to implement a workaround to get reasonable performance.

  • One production server on SQL 2008, one upgrading soon.

  • Local facility I hope to convince to upgrade in teh next few months. Corporate still on 2000.
