Microsoft’s SQL Server 2008 R2 Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW) enables you to scale up your relational data warehouses with a massively parallel processing appliance that scales to hundreds of terabytes of data. SolidQ’ new “Parallel Data Warehouse” offering helps you take advantage of a new Parallel Data Warehouse deployment by helping you plan a PDW installation, migrate data, determine the right architecture, and deploy supporting data marts around your PDW installation.
The number of cloud offerings grows daily. Cloud vendors include multiple mega vendors. Which offering is right for your organization? So many questions surround cloud decisions. SolidQ’ Cloud Accelerator offerings will help enterprises and ISVs analyze how cloud fits into their application portfolio and recommend specific strategies for integrating cloud into IT operations. We have three offerings: SolidQ Cloud Accelerator for Enterprises … for Applications … and for ISVs.
