Could Database Software Help Cure Alzheimer's and Save the Earth?
Date:11/6/2008

Asteroid-watchers and protein researchers are showing that Microsoft SQL

Server 2008 can support applications at scales up to 1 petabyte.

REDMOND, Wash., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Just three months after Microsoft Corp. released its data management and business intelligence platform, Microsoft SQL Server 2008, several large customers are using the database software to scale new heights in data warehousing and transaction processing.

SQL Server 2008 gives companies the flexibility of "scaling up" individual servers by adding processors or memory and "scaling out" their databases by adding more nodes to increase performance. Microsoft is also taking advantage of the latest hardware advancements and announced this week at the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference (WinHEC) 2008 that Windows Server 2008 R2 and the next release of SQL Server, code-named "Kilimanjaro," will support more than 64 processor cores. This will provide customers with the option to consolidate data sources while maintaining similar or improved performance and scalability. Either way, SQL Server literally grows with a business.

SQL Server 2008 offers "a robust, scalable and secure database platform to support critical business applications. Large multiterabyte databases with SQL Server have become common for both transactional applications and data warehouses, as enterprises build larger and complex databases," according to a report from Forrester Research, "SQL Server 2008 Ups Pressure on Competitors; Microsoft Boosts Manageability, BI, Performance, Productivity and Security," by Noel Yuhanna, Mike Gilpin and David D'Silva; Sept. 22, 2008.

Warehousing the Heavens

Perhaps the most impressive application of SQL Server so far -- and one of the most dramatic -- is the Panoramic Survey Telescope an
