Key SQL 2008 Database Hosting Features

SQL Server 2008 64-bit

Language Integrated Query (LINQ)
Developers can issue queries against data, using a managed programming language, instead of SQL statements. Developers are enabled to use strongly typed, set-oriented queries to run against ADO.NET (LINQ to SQL), ADO.NET DataSets, the ADO.NET Entity Framework, and to the Entity Data Service Mapping provider. A new LINQ to SQL provider enables developers to use LINQ directly on SQL Server 2008 tables and columns.

New Data Types
SQL Server 2008 introduces new date and time data types: DATE, TIME, DATETIMEOFFSET, DATETIME2.

Spatial Data Types help build spatial capabilities into applications by using the support for spatial data. Customers can implement Round Earth solutions with the geography data type, using latitude and longitude coordinates to define areas on the Earth's surface. Customers can also implement Flat Earth solutions with the geometry data type, storing polygons, points, and lines that are associated with projected planar surfaces and naturally planar data, such as interior spaces.

Integrated Full Text Search
Integrated Full Text Search makes the transition between Text Search and relational data seamless.

Sparse Columns
NULL data consumes no physical space, providing an efficient way of managing empty data without experiencing large space costs.

Large User-Defined Types
SQL Server 2008 eliminates the 8-KB limit for User-Defined Types (UDTs), allowing users to expand their UDT size.

Remote SQL 2008 Management
Customers can manage their SQL 2008 databases remotely with any sql client like SQL Management Studio or SQL Management Studio Express.

Web-based SQL Manager
Customers can manage their SQL 2008 databases with a web-based SQL manager powered by myLittleAdmin.
