The Analysis Services 2008R2 Performance Guide is Online

October 10, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I am happy to announce that companion volumes for performance tuners and operations people are now again, for the first time since Analysis Services 2000, a reality.

As a developer, you can learn about building, tuning and troubleshooting Analysis Services 2005, 2008 and 2008R2 cubes(yes, the guides cover all three editions) in the Performance Guide.

If you are the DBA or operations team, you can read about running such cubes in production in the Operations Guide.

And finally, if you are a consultant, expert developer or cube DBA, you can learn how to build the meanest and largest cubes from the 5 day Analysis Services Maestro Course.

These three artifacts, which I am proud to have contributed to (and for the guides, leading the effort on), are a big milestone in my Analysis Services career. They represent a large amount of knowledge transfer from Microsoft to the field. The publication of the companion volumes also marks my transition into some new and exiting projects at least for the near future. I will busy be digging into more “grade of the steel” work,  among it ROLAP UDM testing, and I hope to blog about over at SQLCAT.com very soon.

Thanks to everyone for the incredible feedback during the writing of these guys. The Analysis Services community is very vibrant and these guides are the result of our collaboration in the field, and I am happy to give something back.
