Very informative, thank you! I would add another relative newcomer to this list: AsterData. We have been using their system at my last job with great success. It's especially good at supporting complex NPath (map reduce) queries. You can read more about it on their website.

Do you have any first hand experience with the new product and do you have knowledge of the hardware requirements?


Not yet but I have spoken with people in the DW industry who are saying that, while it is on the right path, it isn't there yet. Given M$ enthusiasm for the BI stack I expect them to do whatever it takes to make it a success.

hmm, successful as in profitable?

Taking a step back from the technical discussion I see a mayor re-marketing strategy pushed forward with 2008 R2 but as developers are we getting quality products or market domination? We have so many editions developer, standard, enterprise, express, web, workgroup, datacenter, Parallel Data Warehouse, compact, azure, etc, etc. But do any of these products truely stand on there own two feet or are they all reliant on additional M$ technologies (windows server, share point, .net, excel, even bing) and additional M$ certificated personel.

All the competitive products mentioned deliver very successfully without forcing you to commit to a M$ marriage and a very expensive long term relationship.

I just hope the MPP solution houses keep producing quality and don't get eaten up by the marketing giant.

And M$ got their datallegro.

I went to a virtual Denali seminar earlier this week, which was very good.

M$ will be allowing their deminsional modeling engine to interact with the new the PDW. A cube on steroids, nice!

One point I forgot to mention was a data warehouse appliance is a self contained unit so you won't be cannibalizing your existing storage and IO. There is obviously a network bandwidth consideration.

Oh, and EMC have bought Green-plum
