SQL Server 2016 Release Date


No release date was announced at Data Driven but it was announced on SQL Server Blog.

SQL Server 2016 will be released for general availability on June 1st, 2016!

Take a look at the feature breakdown by edition here.


Today at 10:00am EST, Microsoft is hosting the live web-event; Data Driven.

The official session description is below but I heard a rumor that the RTM release date for SQL Server 2016 might be announced during this web-event. With 2016 RC0 already available, I am eager to see if it happens.


Set a reminder for yourself and then click here when the time comes.

If you don’t have the time to watch the web-event, I will be live blogging this event to provide details.
