DESCRIPTION

The traditional data warehouse has served us well for many years, but new trends are causing it to break in four different ways: data growth, fast query expectations from users, non-relational/unstructured data, and cloud-born data. How can you prevent this from happening? Enter the modern data warehouse, which is able to handle and excel with these new trends. It handles all types of data (Hadoop), provides a way to easily interface with all these types of data (PolyBase), and can handle “big data” and provide fast queries. Is there one appliance that can support this modern data warehouse? Yes! It is the Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW) from Microsoft, which is a Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) appliance that has been recently updated (v2 AU1). In this session I will dig into the details of the modern data warehouse and PDW. I will give an overview of the PDW hardware and software architecture, identify what makes PDW different, and demonstrate the increased performance. In addition I will discuss how Hadoop, HDInsight, and PolyBase fit into this new modern data warehouse.

APS Architecture

Microsoft Analytics Platform System (APS), formally called by its code name “Project Madison”, was released in December 2010 (version 1).  PDW is Microsoft’s reworking of the DatAllegro Inc. massive parallel processing (MPP) product started in 2003 and that Microsoft acquired in September 2008. Version 2 of PDW was made available in March, 2013. It was renamed from SQL Server Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW) to Analytics Platform System (APS) in April 2014 (it still includes the PDW region as well as a new HDInsights/Hadoop region).

Polybase was introduced with version 2 of PDW and has new features in PDW v2 AU1 (April 2014).

Compute Node – the “worker bee” of APS• Runs SQL Server 2012 APS• Contains a “slice” of each database

Control Node – the “brains” of the APS• Also runs SQL Server 2012 APS• Holds a “shell” copy of each database

• Metadata, statistics, etc• The “public face” of the appliance

Data Movement Services (DMS)• Part of the “secret sauce” of APS• Moves data around as needed• Enables parallel operations among the

compute nodes (queries, loads, etc)

1) User connects to the appliance (control node) and submits query

2) Control node query processor determines best *parallel* query plan

3) APS distributes sub-queries to each compute node

4) Each compute node executes query on its subset of data

5) Each compute node returns a subset of the response to the control node

6) If necessary, control node does any final aggregation/computation

7) Control node returns results to user

As an end user or DBA you think about 1 table: LineItem.You run “select * from LineItem”

APS is an appliance, simple to use!You don’t care or need to know that there are actually 320 tables representing your 1 logical table.
