Fast Track Data Warehouse 3.0 Reference Guide

Just found an interesting white paper from Microsoft on a reference configuration for high performance data warehousing using Microsoft SQL Server.

The abstract to the paper:

This paper defines a reference configuration model (known as Fast Track Data Warehouse) using an I/O balanced approach to implementing a symmetric multiprocessor (SMP)-based SQL Server data warehouse with proven performance and scalability expectations for data warehouse workloads. The goal of a Fast Track Data Warehouse reference configuration is to achieve a cost-effective balance between SQL Server data processing capability and realized component hardware throughput.
