SQL Server 2008 R2 PDW anc Columstore Indexes


  • Hi, I am DW and BI DBA for a client who has a SQL Server 2008 R2 Appliance. Can we use ColumnStore Indexes with 2008 R2 PDW? Can we upgrade 2008 R2 PDW to SQL 2012 PDW to take advantage of the new 2012 ColumnStore functionality and performance gains?

    Regards, Andy Webster DBA, MCITP.

  • You will need SQL 2012 to use ColumnStore functionality.
