As a result of the optimizations on the MicroStrategy Hadoop Gateway, MicroStrategy Big Data users can now expect up to a 60% faster response time for cube publishing.

MicroStrategy 10.1 builds on the significant performance gains in MicroStrategy 10, delivering up to 2X query improvements when running a dashboard using cube live connect, 30% faster performance against partitioned cubes, 85% faster count distinct response times, nearly 2X faster count against attributes, and 41% faster incremental refresh (and up to an additional 71% increase in speed when partition is used) in internal testing.

MicroStrategy now offers support for high speed data transfer from Teradata with TPTAPI, accelerating the process of publishing large cubes. This new feature allows large volumes of data to be transferred quickly and in parallel from Teradata databases, enabling users to update in-memory cubes faster and with greater frequency.
