Hi Experts,

We have a very high OLTP Application that is currently on SQL Server 2005

When considering to upgrade which Verison do you think will be more benificial to support high performance (we dont use BI components).

Which one is the major focus for development from Microsoft's view. Any specific advantages to move to R2.

Please share your ideas.

Thanks,

Release 2 is the most current and major focus for development of features.  Both are still being managed for bugs.
