ETL World Record!

I just heard about this from Len Wyatt, who's a Principle Program Manager on the SQL Server Performance team.  Microsoft and Unisys announced a record for loading into a relational database, using SSIS (SQL Server 2008) to load over 1 TB of data in under 30 minutes!  The previous known record-holder was Informatica, who reported loading 1 TB in 45 minutes.  Note that that this is not a TPC benchmark, since none exists for loading tools (yet).

Len blogged about the details on the SQL Server Performance team blog, where he mentions that a whitepaper will follow with more information on how they did it.  I, for one, can't wait to read all about it!
