Success Stories: Motorsport innovator investigates Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW) capabilities for analyzing huge volumes of time-series data


In a sport where the slightest edge of innovation or optimization can mean the difference between winning and losing, one of McLaren's leading products, SQL-Race software, helps facilitate that advantage by managing realtime acquisition of data from racing cars. A highly compressed storage engine built on a Microsoft SQL Server database, SQL-Race makes possible a realtime, easy-to-interpret graphical representation of data on McLaren's Microsoft Windows-based ATLAS display and analysis system.

With the release of Microsoft's SQL Server 2008 R2 Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW) platform, McLaren recognized an opportunity to extend and enhance the capabilities it offers its customers, and raced to be one of the first companies in the world to build a massively parallel processing (MPP) Microsoft SQL Server data analysis application to analyze huge data sets.
