SQL Server 2008 is the latest update to Microsoft's flagship database management system. This is the largest update since SQL Server 2005. SQL Server 2008 is a much more significant update than SQL Server 2005, because it brings increased ability to deliver data across more platforms, and thus many different types of devices. New functionality also allows for easy storage and retrieval of digitized images and video. These attributes address the recent explosion in the popularity of web-based video and server and desktop virtualization.

The Real MCTS SQL Server 2008 Exam 70-432 Prep Kit prepares readers for the Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist exam: SQL Server 2008, Implementation and Maintenance.
