In-Memory Columnstore Indexes--Make Your Data Warehouse Fly – sponsored by Dell Software

Columnstore indexes were introduced in SQL Server 2012, along with a new type of query processing "batch mode". In SQL 2014 they get even better--we can use a Columnstore index as a clustered index and update it. In this session we will explore the basics of Columnstore indexes and how they can help your warehouse performance.
