As of 21 april 2009 product update 393 for Exact Globe and Exact Synergy is generally available for all customers worldwide with an active maintenance agreement, except for customers with custom solutions .
As of product update 393 both Exact Globe and Exact Synergy supports the use of SQL Server 2008. This means that Exact starts selling this new version of SQL Server. Please contact your local Exact office or reseller. If you want to have a look at the unique selling points of SQL Server 2008, please have a look at the overview on the Microsoft website. For an overview of technical documentation for SQL Server 2008, please refer to the Books Online.
SQL Server 2008 licenses grant customers the right to downgrade, which means that customers wanting to use SQL Server 2005 can still do so when purchasing SQL Server 2008 licenses. The upgrade to SQL Server 2008 can then take place at their own convenience. This is also important to know for customers purchasing or using Exact Synergy Enterprise: they are adviced to purchase SQL Server 2008 licenses and use SQL Server 2005 until product update 241 of Exact Synergy Enterprise, which suports SQL Server 2008, is available.
