SQL 2014 ColumnStore Indexes

2014-06-08TulsaSQLRecently I was invited to speak at Oklahoma City SQL User Group and Tulsa SQL User Groups about the advancements available in SQL 2014 with Columnstore Indexes.

ColumnStore indexes were first introduced as xVelocity with SQL 2012 as a way to improve query performance against large data sets by grouping and storing columns of data instead of rows.  With SQL 2014, those ColumnStore indexes become update-able.   In this session, we review the difference in ColumnStore indexes, implementing ColumnStore indexes Clustered and Non-Clustered and monitor performance.
