Summary: This paper defines a reference configuration model (known as Fast Track Data Warehouse) using an resource balanced approach to implementing a symmetric multiprocessor (SMP)-based SQL Server database system architecture with proven performance and scalability for data warehouse workloads. The goal of a Fast Track Data Warehouse reference architecture is to achieve an efficient resource balance between SQL Server data processing capability and realized component hardware throughput.
