SQLSaturday in Houston Presentation

Thanks to everyone who attended my presentation “Scaling SQL Server to HUNDREDS of Terabytes” at Houston SQLSaturday.

Here is the PowerPoint presentation: Scaling SQL Server to HUNDREDS of Terabytes

Scaling SQL Server to HUNDREDS of Terabytes

Learn how SQL Server 2008 can scale to HUNDREDS of terabytes for BI solutions. This session will focus on Fast Track Solutions and Appliances, Reference Architectures, and Parallel Data Warehousing (PDW). Included will be performance numbers and lessons learned on the very first PDW implementation in the world and how a successful BI solution was built on top of it using SSAS.

Learn about all the different appliances and how they can save you a tremendous amount of time and money instead of building on your own: HP Business Decision Appliance (BDA), HP Business Data Warehouse appliance (BDW), HP Enterprise Data Warehouse Appliance, and HP Database Consolidation Appliance.

If you are involved in the decision making in your company for purchasing one or more servers to be used for SQL Server, this session will make you aware there are options outside of the usual ordering a server and internally installing the hardware, OS, and SQL Server.
