Adventure Works Database for SQL Server 2012

SQL Server 2012 introduces many new technologies and features. One of the best ways to learn about these features is to try them out on a database. Luckily for us, we have the AdventureWorks database available since the year 2000. The best part is that the SQL Team has been regularly maintaining and updating the AdventureWorks sample database for all new versions of SQL Server, as they are released.

To download versions of Adventure Works databases for SQL Server 2012, go to AdventureWorks for SQL Server 2012 on CodePlex.

AdventureWorks Community Samples Databases for SQL Azure

SQL Azure is the relational data store for the Azure platform. The SQL team has also released a AdventureWorks2012 Full database on CodePlex containing the full version of the AdventureWorks2012 database along with an AdventureWorks samples database that is scaled-out using SQL Azure Federations.


There are some other downloads available for OLTP, Multidimensional models, Datawarehouse etc. Do check them out!
