HP Enterprise Data Warehouse Specification
HP now has full specifications, including options, for their SQL Server 2008 R2 Parallel Data Warehouse Solution on their website ( html | pdf ). One of the few options you have when ordering a PDW appliance is the storage configuration on your data rack. For the HP EDW, you currently have three choices of hard drive configurations. Below you can see the storage capacity you can get based on a 2.5X compression ratio. This is different (and improved) over what I have previously posted as the specifications became finalized for PDW.
