re: Microsoft SQL Server 2012: Big Data Power Incomplete
One early user of SQL Server 2012 for big data duties is social networking analysis service Klout. Klout uses Hadoop to process about 350GB of social networking data each day. The company uses Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services (AS) to prep 600 million rows of data from Hadoop's Hive data warehouse component daily so they can be queried.

"We use AS as an analytics query engine since Hive and Hadoop are terrible at serving interactive queries at scale," said David Mariani, Klout vice president of engineering. "AS queries billions of rows in under 10 seconds and allows us to iterate and test a large number of scenarios very quickly."
