Sql server 2019 at PASS Austria

Had a pleasure today participate in presentation of SQLServer 2019 at Microsoft Austria in PASS October meeting. Microsoft seem to follow its goal of expanding existing features and making its product better over time.

Polybase extention to another with another providers feels like natural continuation and I am wondering if more providers will follow.

Improvements in areas of system interopability are really huge as now we can run SQL Server on Windows, OS X and several linux distribution.
