Dallas, TX (PRWEB) March 05, 2012
Scalability Experts, Inc. announced today that Microsoft has selected Scalability Experts, a Microsoft NSI Partner with Gold Competencies in Data Platform and Business Intelligence, to be a consulting services partner for their new line of SQL Server 2008 R2 PDW and Database Consolidation Appliances jointly developed with HP, Dell, and other hardware vendors. Scalability Experts will provide SQL Server consulting and implementation services to maximize the out-of-the-box features, benefits and performance enterprise customers’ gain from purchasing an appliance solution. Appliances, which are an integrated hardware, software and service solution, reduce complexity, lower costs and reduce the time it takes to set up a solution, compared to more traditional data warehouse or consolidation approaches. With ten years of deep SQL Server database experience and the use of unique tools and methodologies, Scalability Experts can help customers determine the appliance that best fits their needs and make deployment fast, easy and seamless.
“When it came to selecting a company to help us support and deploy these new SQL Server database appliances for customers, Scalability Experts was an easy choice,” said Tobias Schmidt, Sr. Product Manager Microsoft. “Scalability Experts will be a part of a select number of highly specialized and qualified organizations that will be engaged with SQL Server appliance customers. Scalability Experts’ deep database experience will help customers by providing assessments, architectural design review sessions, proof of concepts and other implementation services to make sure customers get the most value from their appliance.”
The new Enterprise Database Consolidation Appliance offers a complete out of the box solution optimized for SQL Server to speed deployment, reduce application sprawl and simplify the management of thousands of databases with a private cloud. The consolidation appliance helps customers deploy databases in minutes instead of weeks; reduces operations costs up to 75 percent through savings in floor space, energy and infrastructure; and requires no application or database changes when customers consolidate databases.
The SQL Server 2008 R2 Parallel Data Warehouse Appliance, optimized to improve access, delivers faster queries and 10 times the scalability of traditional deployments. It also provides the agility needed to grow from 38 to more than 500 terabytes of information, without impact to performance. The SQL Server 2008 R2 PDW Appliance is a complete solution with a single view across the enterprise that lowers costs, reduces risk and speeds up the delivery of information resulting in faster business benefits.
“We are seeing a significant increase in market interest and demand for appliance solutions developed by Microsoft, HP and other hardware vendors”, said Raj Gill, CTO and President of Scalability Experts. “With the growth in data that companies are experiencing each year and the costs associated with application sprawl, many are looking for easier solutions to improve capacity, increase scalability and simplify their database infrastructure. These appliances provide a very efficient way to meet a customer’s growing needs. At SE we are excited that we were one of the first partners to be fully trained on this new technology and we are actively helping Microsoft with a number of customers already,” Gill added.
