SQL Server 2008 R2 now supported with Lync 2010

Microsoft has completed their testing of SQL Server 2008 R2 and Lync Server 2010 and has found the database to be compatible. This is great news for companies that have an existing SQl 2008 R2 environment and have had to in the past setup a new SQL server/cluster just for Lync Server.
