Hadoop--Tell Me More



Hadoop is an emerging data storage technology that will likely be a key part of most data architectures going forward. In this session, we will discuss what it is, what does well and how to interact with it.



 

IN-MEMORY COLUMNSTORE INDEXES--MAKE YOUR DATA WAREHOUSE FLY


Columnstore indexes were introduced in SQL Server 2012, along with a new type of query processing "batch mode". In SQL 2014 they get even better--we can use a Columnstore index as a clustered index and update it. In this session we will explore the basics of Columnstore indexes and how they can help your warehouse performance.
