New SAP on SQL Server 2008 Whitepaper released

We finally made it to the finish line with the new Whitepaper describing SAP applications running on SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2005. Part of the reason why I was so silent on the blog over the last months certainly can be attributed to the effort in finishing his paper. We basically took the existing paper in its second version and extended it by changes which are needed for SQL Server 2008. We also went pretty deep into describing new SQL Server 2008 features. However we also decided to split the original paper into 3 parts. We already started writing at the second part which will be all around Availability and Disaster Recovery. Part 3 will finally cover Performance Monitoring and aspects of Performance Tuning. The new paper can be downloaded from here:

Thanks to all the folks who contributed with content and reviewing. Have fun in reading it.
