SQL Server 2008 R2 Scalability to HUNDREDS of Terabytes

Session Level:
200 – Intermediate

Audience:
All users of BI

Learn how SQL Server 2008R2 can scale to HUNDREDS of terabytes for BI solutions. This session will focus on Fast Track Solutions, Reference Architectures, and Parallel Data Warehousing.

I got most my slides from this Tech Ed Session.  I would highly recommend watching as many Tech Ed sessions as you can they are great resources.

Also the Best Practices as presented in the FastTrack Data Warehouse 3.0 Reference are absolutely spectacular! They can be
very valuable even if you are not going to buy a Fast Track Solution.
