SQL Server 2014 CTP1 available for download
The day has come at last! SQL Server 2014 CTP1 is available for download!
You can now start playing with Hekaton and all the exciting features included in this version.
Mi suggestion is to create a new virtual machine for your playground: this CTP version won’t install on a machine with other installations of SQL Server.
If you prefer it and you have a subscription, you can also try SQL Server 2014 on Windows Azure.
While you’re at it, take the time to read the documentation carefully. You’ll soon discover that the in-memory engine has some limitations. I hope that the next versions will overcome them and give us a more usable software.
