Geo-Replication Performance Gains with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Running on Windows Server 2008

Microsoft.com Engineering Operations (MSCOM Ops), the team responsible for architecting and managing many of the most heavily trafficked Microsoft Web sites, recently documented substantial replication performance improvements for both push and pull subscriptions in Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 running on Windows Server® 2008—up to 100 times faster than Microsoft SQL Server 2005 running on Windows Server 2003. This paper provides IT pros with an in-depth look at the tests conducted by the MSCOM Ops team, insight into the results, and technical analysis of the enhancements to Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 that enable wide area network (WAN)–based geo-replication.

High Performance Computing (HPC)

Traditional computing takes the form of an application running on a server or workstation. All of the commands for the application are processed on the local system. High Performance Computing (HPC) instead uses the processing power of multiple systems to process the commands for an application. Distributing the processing load across multiple systems allows for faster processing of the data.

TechNet Webcast: 24 Hours of SQL Server 2008: Streamlining Data Integration (Level 200)

To load data into the Contoso enterprise data warehouse, Contoso uses Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Integration Services. In this webcast, we review the new features in Integration Services that help Contoso streamline the development and execution of processes to extract, transform, and load data into the data warehouse: ADO.NET connectivity, persistent lookups, pipeline improvements, and data profiling. We also examine alternatives for managing changing data in the data warehouse using the Change Data Capture function and MERGE command. Demonstrations on using an ADO.NET data source, working with lookup caches, identifying dirty data with data profiling, and using Change Data Capture and MERGE for slowly changing dimensions are included in this webcast.
