As a user of Digital/Compaq Alpha technology how does MS dropping support affect SQL Server?

A. The complete ramifications of this are not yet known, but :-

1. Support for all currently released SQL products/service-packs continues and will not be affected.

2. New service-packs for 6.5 and 7.0 will continue to be produced for Alpha for the time-being.

3. No future new versions of SQL Server will be released on Alpha - i.e. SQL 2000 (Shiloh) will not appear for the Alpha chip.


v1.02 2000.02.01
Applies to SQL Server versions : 4.x, 6.x, 7.0
