Inside the Columnstore Index

You have seen the marketing speak. You may have seen the demos. And  maybe you have even played with the feature - columnstore indexes, the amazing "go faster" switch in SQL Server 2012!

But do you know how they work? Come to this session to find out. SQL Server MVP Hugo Kornelis will lift the hood to give you an in-depth view of all the internals, both documented and undocumented. How are columnstore indexes built and read? What is batch-mode execution? How does it operates, and how do these features work together to achieve an amazing performance boost?

If you just want to use the feature and profit from the much faster performance, you should find another sessions. But if you are a geek who wants to know all the nitty gritty details of this exciting new feature, then this is the session for you!
