Recent trends in query acceleration in data warehouse workloads include column stores, disk filtering, hardware acceleration, SSD, MPP and SQL coprocessors. We’ll compare these performance options.
We will describe in detail Kickfire’s dataflow hardware acceleration which directly executes SQL operators on a compressed column store with hardware indexing on massive data. Real-world examples from our enterprise customers will be shown and discussed.
