Microsoft and SAP have been working together closely for more than 15 years to ensure that the Microsoft platform and SAP solutions work well together. The SAP certification of Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2 is the technical stamp of approval of this joint work by both Microsoft and SAP. Worldwide, the number of developers who are proficient with these technologies and the adoption of SQL Server for SAP continue to grow.
Building on the previous version’s capabilities, SQL Server 2008 R2 further solidifies SQL Server as enterprise-ready for SAP and leads the industry with the lowest TCO for database platforms by way of lower pricing, reduced administration overhead, built-in high availability, and scalability.
