Microsoft has a lot on its plate in terms of upcoming software releases. In addition to the rumors that it plans to launch Windows 8.1 Update 1 on April 8th, the company has announced this week that SQL Server 2014 has reached the RTM stage and will become generally available on April 1st.
In a blog post, Quentin Clark, Microsoft's Corporate Vice President of its Data Platform Group, said that the release of SQL Server 2014 is significant in at least a couple of ways for its data management product family. One is that it supports in-memory online transaction processing, which Clark claims can boost database performance by up to 30 times compared to older versions. These improvements were created under the code name "Project Hekaton".
