New SSIS Whitepapers from the SQLCAT Team

Two new SSIS SQL Server Technical Articles written by the SQLCAT team have been posted to the MSDN Library. They both focus on hybrid/cloud data movement, but they also contain design patterns and guidance that applies to on-premises data flows as well. The SSIS Operational and Tuning Guide has a great section on designing a package for restartability and performance tuning that all SSIS users will find useful.

SSIS Operational and Tuning Guide

SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) can be used effectively as a tool for moving data to and from Windows Azure (WA) SQL Database, as part of the total extract, transform, and load (ETL) solution and as part of the data movement solution. SSIS can be used effectively to move data between sources and destinations in the cloud, and in a hybrid scenario between the cloud and on-premise. This paper outlines SSIS best practices for cloud sources and destinations, discusses project planning for SSIS projects whether the project is all in the cloud or involves hybrid data moves, and walks through an example of maximizing performance on a hybrid move by scaling out the data movement.

 

SSIS for Azure and Hybrid Data Movement

SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) can be used effectively as a tool for moving data to and from Windows Azure SQL Database, as part of the total extract, transform, and load (ETL) solution and as part of the data movement solution. SSIS can be used effectively to move data between sources and destinations in the cloud, and in a hybrid scenario between the cloud and on-premise. This paper outlines best practices for using SSIS for cloud sources and destinations and for project planning for SSIS projects to be used with Azure or hybrid data moves, and gives an example of maximizing performance on a hybrid move by scaling out the data movement.

 

Did you know that the DQS team also published a whitepaper on using DQS with AlwaysOn? It’s another interesting read.
