Fast Track Data Warehouse

If you are building a data warehouse, you want to make sure
it meets your business requirements, as well as your performance requirements.  
The Fast Track Data Warehouse design approach helps make sure you meet your
requirements.  This methodology makes sure your design optimizes SQL Server
processing performance while maximizing your I/O throughput when creating
aggregated data. 

This kind of out of the box performance is achieved by
following a little different methodology.  To create a fast track data
warehouse, you must first look at the patterns of your data warehouse workloads,
and then layout your data differently than a traditional data warehouse.  By
looking at your data differently, you are able to improve performance and reduce
the number of disks required to support your data warehouse.    To achieve this
design you need to balance your complex relationships with your database system
architecture.  By separating the different operations necessary to process your
data, you are able to optimize SQL Server capabilities to match the required
throughput. 

The fast track data warehouse approach is a way of
balancing your hardware components with your workload centric data.  This
methodology realizes that the one-size fits all approach does not provide an
optimized solution.   By understanding your workloads and benchmarking your
hardware and software components, you can build a data warehouse that matches
your data workloads while optimizing performance.
