The time upon us is near. MSDN subscribers will be able to download the full second release of SQL Server 2008. I’m looking forward to it. At the organization that I work for, we have been sitting on SQL 2000 for a while. Although we have implemented SQL Server Report Services, it is now time to focus on the new. Our plan of attack includes migration of DTS to SSIS and a full performance tuning routine to include reviewing of index, clusters, bottlenecks, etc. Moreover, our existing Disaster Recovery will be updated, and luckily, R2 should make it easier.
I plan to write more on this as we go along, perhaps I can get some thoughts from others.
