DataCore MaxParallel Software for SQL Server: Making Latency-Sensitive OLTP and Analytics More Responsive and Productive
In this Technology Brief, IDC discusses the importance of boosting SQL Server database performance to make key business applications more responsive, productive, and affordable. It assesses how a new breed of solutions such as DataCore MaxParallel software are addressing application performance challenges with a root-cause approach.
The paper considers the characteristics and features in MaxParallel software, its benefits, and its role in making latency-sensitive, high-velocity, and demanding applications run faster and improve customer experiences.
In today’s 24x7 business environment, access to real-time data is critical. An organization’s ability to remain competitive lies in its ability to quickly react and align with customer expectations. IT is feeling the pressure as increasing amounts of data overwhelm the performance of mission-critical applications. As a result, access to real-time data often proves challenging for today’s enterprises. During peak periods when many users or tasks compete for data access, systems are often bogged down as simultaneous requests are serialized, waiting on previous requests to complete. This inability to quickly respond threatens a business’ ability to compete effectively.
That’s where MaxParallel™ comes in. The simple plug-and-play software improves the responsiveness of applications bogged down by I/O bottlenecks, with no changes to data, applications or hardware. It makes workloads more responsive and productive by removing a number of software chokepoints responsible for sluggish behavior and underutilized resources.
