Enterprises have come to rely on increasingly robust product lifecycle management (PLM) systems to streamline their business processes and to keep costs down. PLM systems, in turn, rely on high-performance databases. Dassault Systèmes ENOVIA V6 is a standards-based, scalable PLM system that can support end-to-end product development processes for all companies, from small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) to large, global enterprises. SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise provides a reliable, cost-effective, low-maintenance database framework for ENOVIA V6 that is able to support even the largest and most process-intensive deployments.

Microsoft and Dassault Systèmes worked together to validate the performance and scalability of Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise as an enterprise-class database management system for ENOVIA V6. The tests confirm that when running on SQL Server, ENOVIA V6 can scale to 5,000 user workloads per hour while maintaining optimal performance in a 3D CAD Rich-Client scenario; in an online collaborative business process Webtop governance scenario, ENOVIA V6 can scale to more than 20,000 user scenarios per hour.
