SQL Saturday # 160

I will be giving the following presentation on Step 22 in Kalamazoo:

Scaling SQL Server to HUNDREDS of Terabytes!

Provide an introduction to the Massive Parallel Processing (MPP) Architecture. Describe how Microsoft’s MPP Appliance, Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW), allows SQL Server to scale to hundreds of terabytes. The presentation will also contain real world performance metrics and lessons learned directly from someone who actually developed a Parallel Data Warehouse Solution.
