SQL Server 2012 Parallel Data Warehouse - A Breakthrough Platform WhitePaper

 

Recently our BI team stumbled upon this whitepaper titled, "SQL Server 2012 Parallel Data Warehouse - A Breakthrough Platform WhitePaper" which was written by Barbara Kess and Dan Kogan of Microsoft.  This paper explains PDW’s design, it's technological and business value.

As a quick FYI for those who are not in the know: Microsoft’s SQL Server® 2012 Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW) is a next-generation platform built to run your data analysis fast and to scale storage from a few terabytes to over 6 petabytes in a single appliance. PDW ships to your data center as an appliance with hardware and software pre-installed and pre-configured for maximum performance. With PDW’s Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) design, queries run in minutes instead of hours, and in seconds instead of minutes in comparison to today’s Symmetric Multi-Processing (SMP) databases. PDW is not only fast and scalable, it is designed with high redundancy and high availability, making it a reliable platform you can trust with your most business critical data.  PDW is designed for simplicity which makes it easy to learn and to manage.  PDW’s PolyBase technology for analyzing Hadoop data, and its deep integration with Business Intelligence tools make it a comprehensive platform for building end-to-end solutions.
