PowerPivot Capacity Specification

PowerPivot for Excel is an add-in that you can use to perform powerful data analysis in Excel 2010, bringing self-service business intelligence to your desktop. PowerPivot for Excel includes a window for adding and preparing data, and a PowerPivot tab on the Excel ribbon that you can use to manipulate the data in an Excel worksheet.

The data that you work on in the PowerPivot window is stored in an analytical database inside the Excel workbook, and a powerful local engine loads, queries, and updates the data in that database. The PowerPivot data can be further enriched by creating relationships between the tables in the PowerPivot window. And because PowerPivot data is in Excel, it is immediately available to PivotTables, PivotCharts, and other features in Excel that you use to aggregate and interact with data. All data presentation and interactivity are provided by Excel 2010; and the PowerPivot data and Excel presentation objects are contained within the same workbook file.

In addition to the graphical tools that help you to analyze your data, PowerPivot includes Data Analysis Expressions (DAX). DAX is a new formula language that extends the data manipulation capabilities of Excel to enable more sophisticated and complex grouping, calculation, and analysis. The syntax of DAX formulas is very similar to that of Excel formulas, using a combination of functions, operators, and values.
