Tokyo-based Trend Micro develops Internet content security and threat management solutions for businesses and consumers worldwide. Trend Micro needed faster data processing to keep pace with the growing number of potential threats on the Internet. The company's data warehouse had grown to more than 55 terabytes and data queries were getting slower. To keep up with threats - and to stay ahead of the competition - the company decided to upgrade to a Microsoft solution. Throughput test measurements indicate that the new solution will triple average query speeds and help block threats much more quickly.
