While most of Microsoft's infrastructure products are now on a yearly update cycle, some still take a little longer. SQL Server 2014, which has already been through two community technology previews, is finally completed, and the finished code will be released on 1 April.
While the date lends itself to various April Fool-related remarks, it coincides with Microsoft's Build developer conference in San Francisco (which Lifehacker will be covering, incidentally). Check out the video above, shot at last year's Tech Ed, for an overview of some of SQL Server 2014's main features.
