What do you think of Microsoft Parallel Data Warehouse?

What is our primary use case?: We are using PDW as an EDW solution. • How has it helped my organization?: It helped, initially, as a replacement for our DW DB, but later on faced issues due to concurrency, which forced the customer to use the DB as a secondary solution. • What is most valuable?: Nothing specific, comparable to other solutions. • What needs improvement?: Concurrent queries are limited to 32, making it more of a data storage mechanism instead of an active DWH solution. They need to improve the metadata being captured to a greater duration. • For how long have I used the solution?: One to three years.
