Microsoft announces that they will be releasing new product for every 3 years and here we got sql server 2008 r2- which suppose to be sql server 2010 but then found that its to Early to make a new product as sql server 2008 it self is every strong and made a big product so microsoft decided not to give new name but enhance the product. so they make sql server 2008 r2 this is new product and Microsoft confirm that it will be launch in May 2010.
