The PI SQL team has been working on a \"new query engine\" that processes SQL queries against AF with a completely new implementation. The primary goals are to improve the performance and scalability of our PI SQL products. Unlike our current PI OLEDB Enterprise product, the SQL processing will take place in the PI SQL Data Access Server. So, the new product will consist of a new, lightweight OLEDB provider (which we calling PI SQL Client OLEDB) and a new PI SQL Data Access Server (RTQP Engine) that is an optional component in the PI Server install kit.
