SQL Server Master Data Services now available

Whilst the core components of SQL 2008 R2 have been signing autographs on the red carpet, Master Data Services has sneaked quietly in through the back door.   If you have MSDN access, download a full version (guessing developer and enterprise only but haven’t checked) and off you go.  The install is a not part of the main installation either, you need to run it directly from the DVDISO in the MasterDataServices folder.  Setup is very simple and there’s some good sample packages to play with.

StreamInsight is on there as well 🙂
