Managing Terabytes of Data with SQL Server

Storage management and partitioning techniques

A data warehouse can grow to billions of rows and several terabytes of data.  This presentation takes a look at the techniques used to manage all that data.  The topics:
  • Storage Architecture - Direct Attach/Sans/Nas
  • Organizing data through files and filegroups.
  • The ETL (Enter-Test-Load) process
  • Partitioned Tables and Partitioned Views for query optimization
  • Sliding window techniques to combine the above.

Here's Andy delivering the presentation at SQL PASS 2008.
