  • Next-Gen Performance with Mission Critical AvailabilityFast Track for SQL 2012 provides a generational leap in performance due to the new xVelocity in-memory technologies allowing improvements of 10X-100X for single query execution and measured workload throughputs [at *double Fast Track for SQL Server 2008 R2 rates]. Mission critical availability with AlwaysOn gives Fast Track for SQL 2012 complete fault tolerance and disaster recovery to achieve the required 9s of up time.  *Internal Microsoft testing of FTDW Rated Throughput.  Can also insert Partner numbersOptimized Configuration on Latest HardwareFast Track for SQL 2012 is a reference architecture allowing customers to buy or re-use existing industry standard, tier 1 hardware in a configuration pre-validated for optimal Data Warehousing performance.  Customers have access to the latest generation of servers and storage and cutting edge features of SQL Server 2012. SQL Server Fast Track for Data Warehousing can Scale-Up to meet workload demands between 2 and 95 TB of user data capacity. Partners will include HP, Dell, IBM, EMC, Nimbus, XIO, and Cisco.Fast Track has also been optimized for SSD Hard Drives and can deliver entire reference architectures on SSD.Fast Time To Solution At Lowest CostFast Track for SQL 2012 enables IT staff to get up and running quickly. Pre-validated Reference Architectures eliminate  complex hardware and software balancing and take guesswork out of system configuration. This has saved customers  [like insert FTDW case study reference] months of configuration, setup, testing and tuning.  Fast Track for SQL 2012 combines low cost  of acquisition and ownership  (includes maintenance, IT staffing, installation, configuration, operations). Furthermore, real life scenarios [such as Insert FTDW case study reference] show savings of hundreds of thousands of dollars after migrating to Fast Track.

    • 1. AGENDA Introduction Next Generation Performance and Availability Insights for Everyone Fastest Time to Solution at Lowest Cost
    • 2. You’re at a station in an unfamiliar city on business and your train is delayed Your smart phone, aware of the delay, alerts you to the fact that you will be late for your scheduled meeting It offers to direct you to a bus stop, calculating that you can still arrive on time by taking the next bus Instead you decide use an app on your phone that contacts local cab firms and automatically orders a car from the company that can get to you fastest The cab locates you by GPS, gets you to your meeting on time, and the fare is paid automatically via your phone
    • 3. It’s all about the data warehouse Availability Performance Scale Delivery Scale to house massive volumes of data from multiple sources Answer complex queries almost instantly Ensure that the service remains available at all times Deliver accurate information to any device, any time, and any place
