Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 R2 Parallel Data Warehouse and Fast Track Data Warehouse Run on Intel® Xeon® Processors
Data warehouses are essential to providing employees fast access to the complete and up-to-date information they need to make better decisions, improve operational efficiency, build profitable customer relationships, develop differentiated product offerings, maximize corporate performance, and increase competitiveness. The more effectively and widely a data warehouse’s business intelligence (BI) solutions can be leveraged, the more benefit these solutions can provide.
Microsoft and Intel are now ready to help organizations turn a new page in data warehousing. Using Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 R2 Enterprise, you can now quickly deploy small data warehouses or data marts with the Microsoft Fast Track Data Warehouse option – a set of new scalable reference architectures for data marts and warehouses that provide an appliance-like experience.
