2013 October 10

Once again, you may have noticed I’ve been remiss in posting lately. Many things have been going on both professionally and personally….its been a busy time. Hopefully this will be the first of many consistent posts about Big Data and SQL Server PDW.

Next week the PASS Summit is in Charlotte, NC. I will be speaking there on a couple different sessions about data warehousing. One of them will be a deep dive on Polybase within SQL Server 2012 Parallel Data Warehouse. If you are interested in how PDW and Hadoop play well together, please join us.

Polybase Deep Dive: Thursday, Oct. 17th, 2013 5:00 pm Room 217 B-C


With the increasing role of Hadoop in capturing and processing raw, non-relational data, integrating Hadoop into existing SQL Server products is becoming essential as we move toward one comprehensive data platform. Polybase provides a set of features for SQL Server 2012 Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW) that enables you to combine Hadoop and relational data in a seamless and fully parallelized fashion via T-SQL. This session will present a deep dive of the Polybase features shipped in SQL Server 2012 PDW, followed by a comprehensive overview of additional Polybase features planned for the next appliance updates.

Here’s a link to the session:
