SAP BPC Partitioning on a Windows 64 bit Server

Hello, we are considering SQL Server 2005 partitioning the SAP BPC (V5 SP3) time dimension by month on a Windows 64 bit Server since we curently have more than 70 million records in the application FACT table. Has any body got any experience of partitioning with Windows 64 bit servers and if so can you provide ay recommendations and did you come across any issues that we should be aware of?

    Hi Wayne,

    It is no difference between 64 bits and 32 bits regarding the partioning of SQL 2005.

    I think you would like to partition the cubes not the table.

    Partioning of table doesn't help for performances but partionning of cube for OLAP it is provide at least 40% improvements for retrieve data (mdx queries).

    So if you know to do the partitioning for 32 bits then you have to follow the same steps for 64 bits.

    If you need information about how to do partitions in general then you can find into wiki information about how you can do partitions for BPC 5.X.
