SQL Server 2012 Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW) is the next step in your evolution for high performance data warehousing. PDW is an appliance built for any volume of relational data, provides seamless integration with Hadoop, and can deliver up to and beyond 100x performance gains, while achieving the lowest price-per-terabyte in the market.
SQL Server 2012 Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW) is the high performance and scalable solution built for today’s modern data warehousing needs. SQL Server PDW provides a massively parallel processing appliance that can improve your data loading and query response times up to and beyond 100x over legacy solutions. PDW is also a great Big Data solution with the included Polybase, which can perform standard SQL queries to access and join Hadoop data with relational data. PDW offers the lowest price-per-terabyte in the market and is easy to get started because it uses the same familiar tools as SQL Server.
PolyBase provides a fundamental breakthrough in data processing by enabling integration between traditional data warehouses and “Big Data” deployments.
Go beyond your traditional SQL Server deployment with PDW’s massively parallel processing appliance that can handle the extremes of your largest mission-critical requirements.
Unlike other vendors in the data warehousing space who deliver a high-end appliance at a high price, Microsoft engineered PDW for optimal value through software innovations which result in a lower cost for the appliance.
