As of 30 June 2009, Exact Synergy Enterprise product update 241 is general available. In this product update SQL Server 2008 is supported. Exact is 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. So if you are currently using SQL 2000, you can buy SQL 2008 instead of SQL 2005. If one of your applications does not support SQL 2008 at this moment, you are allowed to install SQL 2005.
