Parallel Data Warehousing (PDW) Explained | James Serra's Blog Microsoft SQL Server Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW), formally called by its code name “Project Madison”, is an edition of Microsoft’s SQL Server 2008 R2 that was released in December 2010. PDW is Microsoft’s reworking of the DatAllegro Inc. massive parallel processing (MPP) product that Microsoft acquired in July 2008. It only works with certain hardware (two so far), the first of which is HP Enterprise Data Warehouse Appliance (Dell Parallel Data Warehouse Appliance is the other, with a couple more to come in the near future: IBM and Bull). So what is MPP? MPP is also available from other companies such as EMC Greenplum, Teradata, Oracle Exadata, HP Vertica, and IBM Netezza, but those use proprietary systems, where PDW can be used with commodity hardware, providing a much lower cost per terabyte. Microsoft has had clustering capabilities in SQL Server for a while, but the scalability part was lacking. In short, PDW is ideal for large data warehouses and BI, but not for OLTP systems.
