Executive Summary

The goal of this paper is to describe best practices for deploying Decision Support System (DSS) or Data Warehousing (DW) solutions based on Microsoft SQL Server 2008 using Dell EqualLogic storage. DSS solutions require scalable storage platforms that offer high levels of performance and capacity. Deploying the storage platform using validated best practices and recommended settings for various system components (storage, server, switch, operating system, and application) will ensure optimal operation. The Dell Storage Interoperability Engineering Lab conducted a series of end-to-end system integration tests using Dell PowerEdge servers, Dell PowerConnect network switches, and Dell Equallogic storage arrays.
