TechEd NA 2012: PDW Sessions
If you are going to be at TechEd next week and are interested in new features of SQL Server Parallel Data Warehouse Appliance Update 3, I suggest you stop by the following session. Additionally, the session will dive into Microsoft Business Intelligence integration with PDW. Learn directly from the PDW product group!
SQL Server is releasing AU3 version of Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW) with a new software architecture featuring a cost-based optimizer, stored procedure support, SQL Server security model, as well as the Microsoft TDS protocol that allows native integration with existing Microsoft tools. The new architecture delivers order of magnitude (10x or more) performance improvement compared to the existing AU2 product, and greatly improves connectivity and programmability functionality. This session focuses on the benefits to BI solutions using SQL Server PDW, showing how to integrate PDW AU3 into key BI solutions: Microsoft BI Platform as well as key third-party products. #TEDBI321
Also, I’ll be occasionally staffing the Microsoft Technology Learning Center in the Data Analytics and Data Warehousing booth. Stop by and see me or any of my colleagues and bring your questions about PDW.
