SQL Server 2008 introduced the FileStream object. This allowed developers to resolve an age long dilemma of storing large binary files in the database or accessing them on the file system. SQL Server 2008 provides the best of both worlds while allowing applications to access the data readily through the FileStream object via Transact SQL or File I/O.

The SQL Server Special Interest Group (SQL SIG) was founded in a partnership between Bennett Adelson and Microsoft. The SQL SIG has become the forum for SQL Server collaboration and instruction from some of the brightest minds in the region. The organization was founded to provide enterprise SQL developers and DBA's the opportunity to collaborate and listen to leading experts discuss various topics within SQL Server. Members include a broad range of disciplines and experiences, from the experienced SQL DBA or developer to a novice on the Microsoft platform.
