Microsoft SQL Server 2022 Resources

Introduction

Microsoft SQL Server 2022 was released on November 16, 2022. With that in mind, here is my list of Microsoft SQL Server 2022 Resources.

The reason that this is relevant is because it is a good idea to start becoming more familiar with the new features and improvements in SQL Server 2022 so you can decide whether it makes sense for your organization or not. If anyone has any additions that I have missed, I would like to hear about them. Thanks!

Microsoft SQL Server 2022 Resources

I put together this list of official Microsoft resources (so far) about SQL Server 2022. It is mainly focused on the core database engine. I plan to update this as new content is released.

What’s New in SQL Server 2022

Microsoft SQL Server Blog (newest to oldest)

These posts have been coming out on a fairly regular basis, with the latest one on December 1, 2022.

These are typically 15 to 20-minute videos that dive deeper than you might expect on a new feature. Microsoft was cranking these out pretty quickly for a while, but the last one was released on March 3, 2022.

Final Words

Nobody has ever come to me and said, “Hey Glenn, would you like to upgrade to the latest version of SQL Server?”. It has always been up to me to build the technical and business case for a version upgrade. Now is the time to start building your case! If you are a DBA managing older versions of SQL Server, your life will be easier on SQL Server 2022.

I wrote a longer post about Upgrading to SQL Server 2022 back in September. Microsoft has been strangely quiet (compared to what they did for past versions) about SQL Server 2022. My guess is that Microsoft marketing is responsible for this. I’m sure they have their own plans about how to generate interest in SQL Server 2022.

If you have any questions about this post, please ask me here in the comments or on Twitter. I am pretty active on Twitter as GlennAlanBerryThanks for reading!
