by: David Williams

Summary: SQL Server on Linux - SQL Server vNext goes cross platform!

- How it started - Project Drawbridge, Slava with his brother!
- SQL PAL (SQL Platform Abstraction Layer)
- SQLOSv2
- The (very small) host extension which is platform specific
- Installation with demo,yes that fast!
- Backups and Restores cross platform
- Clustering on Linux
- AlwaysOn Availability Groups cross platform
- Compiling CLR code for both platforms
- SQL Agent (new in the March CTP 1.4 release!)
- How the Linux layer is compiled
- Debugging a combined Windows PE and Linux ELF execution including getting a stack dump
- Performance goals
- Limitations with the current implementation
