McLaren Electronics fuels analysis of Formula One racing data with SQL Server.
McLaren Electronic Systems is helping Formula One race teams gain more value from the more than 2 terabytes of ECU data they collect each year by using the FILESTREAM feature of SQL Server 2008 to create a central repository with rapid response times. "To support the racing teams we need three things from a database: performance, integrity, and robustness," says MES. "If you can find all three, you've got a winner. SQL Server 2008 wins on all three points."
