Microsoft unveils new SQL Server 2008 R2 Parallel Data Warehouse

Design, deploy and optimise appliance-based offerings

By CBR Staff Writer

Microsoft has unveiled new SQL Server code-named ‘Denali’, which will be made available as SQL Server 2008 R2 Parallel Data Warehouse.

The company has also started a new Critical Advantage Program, which provides experience across the complete life cycle of mission-critical appliances, such as SQL Server 2008 R2 Parallel Data Warehouse.

Microsoft said that the combined product and programme will help enterprise customers design, deploy and optimise appliance-based offerings to help ensure the scalability, availability and reliability for the demanding data warehouse requirements.

The SQL Server 2008 R2 Parallel Data Warehouse comes with a parallel processing architecture which is pre-tuned and pre-configured to enable distributed query processing for the highest levels of performance.

The Parallel Data Warehouse appliance offering is available to customers with choice in hardware, today in partnership with HP and in the future through other partnerships with companies such as Bull.

In addition, with interoperability with the Microsoft Business Intelligence (BI) platform, customers can deliver managed self-service BI offerings to everyone in the organisation.
