A REAL monster


The folks on the BI Practices Team(now merged in with the SQL Server Perf Engineering Team) have spent the last 2 years working on a mondo BI reference implementation called Project Real. Working with data that started out form a real customer, hardware vendors and tools vendors they have built a great blueprint for a SQL Server 2005 BI System. Congrats to Dave, Len and all the others that helped over the last 2 years.

    Does one have to use the Enterprise version of SQL 2005? I get an error when attempting to attach to the Warehouse sample mdf file using SQL 2005 Standard edition. Apparently Standard Ed. 2005 SQL does not support partitioning…?

    JD,

    It does use partitioning for the relational and the AS pieces but you can play with it on EE, Dev and Eval Editions, all are essentially EE.
