Data Warehouse Architecture in SQL Server 2008

The Fast Track reference configurations address the need to design solution architectures correctly for BI systems. More specifically, these Fast Track reference configurations target the database tier of a BI solution, providing the tools and architectural direction customers need when using SQL Server for a data warehouse that will support BI-focused queries.

I found this paper on MSDN which gives you an overview and guide to SQL Server® Fast Track Data Warehouse, a new set of reference architectures created for scale-up (SMP) SQL Server based data warehouse solutions. It includes a summary of the resources available in the reference configuration, the distinguishing features of the approach, and the steps necessary to take full advantage of the new architectures.
