Great white paper: Microsoft EDW Architecture, Guidance and Deployment Best Practices

A fantastic white paper just released: Microsoft EDW Architecture, Guidance and Deployment Best Practices.

It’s a must read if you are a data architect, data developer, or DBA involved in an Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW).  As the paper says, the focus is on the best practices and repeatable patterns for developing and maintaining large data warehouses on the Microsoft SQL Server platform.

Put this on the top of your list as the next white paper to read.  But be warned it is not something you can read on your lunch break, as it is a few hundred pages.  But well worth it.
