Yeah, no quirky titles on this post; I mean business this time.

Today, we have finally released updates to our current products to support Visual Studio 2010 and .NET Framework 4.0.

Congrats to all of the product teams, and thanks for your work.

  1. I want to put data dynamics analysis up on my website for user to have drag and drop functionality. I have a database of ten million records. My questions are:
    Can Analysis handle this many records and how fast?
    If I have used thrid party components before, how quick can I get Analysis up and running?
    Do you do any consulting work that can help? Please let me know…Thanks.

  2. Hi Bill,

    For large volumes of data we recommend using ActiveAnalysis/Data Dynamics Analysis against a SQL Server Analysis Services cube. This off-loads the aggregation we would otherwise do in memory against the source data to a dedicated server that can provide results and scalability much faster/better than a simple component can.

    The simplest way of getting up and running with Analysis is, again, via an SSAS cube; you need only provide us with the connection to the cube and the control will do the rest.

    If you want to provide only a small subset of data, you can use the relational data source component. This requires first creating a schema (which can be automatically generated) and then supplying the schema, connection string, and query string to the data source. Once that information is provided, again the control will take care of everything from there. This is really only recommended to be used against a few thousand rows of data, as we load the data set into memory and perform aggregation/filtering there.

    I don’t provide any consulting services, however GrapeCity does have a Global Services division which may be able to assist you.
