Scaling Out SSAS

leave a comment »

Yet another new white paper, this time on scaling out Analysis Services:
Interesting and good that they don’t shy away from the things that don’t work so well. I’ve heard a few people complain that the built-in sychronisation doesn’t work well with complex (ie lots of dimensions/attributes/partitions as opposed to large) databases, and although I’ve not had any practical experience myself that reflects this the paper does refer to the synchronise functionality as being "quite robust" just before it describes how to do the same thing in a SSIS package using Robocopy to copy the AS data folder.
