Extrasort component

ExtraSort Component for Integration Services improves on the built-in sorting routine and enables smooth scaling to large data sets. You gain the following benefits from ExtraSort:

Sort over 2 GB. Large data sets are handled successfully while the built-in sort routine isn't suited to inputs larger than RAM (see graph).

Thousands of percent faster with >2 GB data sets. 300% faster for small ones.

Memory usage throttling in ExtraSort lets it coexist with other processes while the built-in sort routine exhausts all RAM choking other apps.

New 6/19 v1.0.2 posted, it is 50% faster than previous build and tested with files up to 30 GB.

strcmp/stricmp sort orders are available in ExtraSort. The built-in sort routine for example can't fulfill PennySort benchmark requirement due to lack of stricmp sort order.

Beta evaluation is available for download
