We suppose a more appropriate title would have been: Better Late Than Never. 

David should begin by apologizing. Last month was the first anniversary of the ETL world record we set last year with SSIS, loading 1 TB of data in under 30 minutes. While Len did a nice blog post on the project at the time, we had promised to return to our favorite ETL practitioners (that's you) with more details, pulling back the curtain on Oz so to speak.

It only took a mere year to get around to that, and a lot of water has gone under the bridge since then. Happily, the paper's now done and published to the web for your reading pleasure. Whew!
