This session is a primer on column store indexes and SQL Server batch mode, it delves into the background behind the performance gains achieved by batch mode and includes demos on things that can be done to further enhance batch mode performance such as pre-sorting the data prior column store index creation, delta stores in action, segment elimination and the difference that batch mode makes. Back ground information on the 'Anatomy' of a column store index, how row mode works and why it is inefficient and a brief overview of CPU architectures is also provided. The full deck behind for this presentation ( which may be subject to change ) can be found here: http://www.slideshare.net/chris1adkin/an-introduction-to-column-store-indexes-and-batch-mode.
