Use Cases: Database

Reference Architecture Using Tegile Flash Arrays and Cisco UCS

The Microsoft SQL Server Data Warehouse Fast Track (DWFT) reference architecture is designed to eliminate the complexity of properly sizing hardware for your SQL Server-based Data Warehouse. This will streamline the decision-making process and reduce hardware and maintenance costs. The sizing technique used in SQL Server DWFT will properly size storage and servers, based on I/O throughput and CPU transaction capability. This consumption-based approach ensures that you can take full advantage of your hardware and software investment.

The Microsoft SQL Server Fast Track Data Warehouse Reference Architecture presented in this document is designed, tested, and validated by Microsoft, Cisco, and Tegile.
