NOTE: Clean Your Cubes

It's not spring-time, but it's still worth giving a thought to the cleanliness of your environment, for the benefit of reducing complexity and of reducing space usage. Angela Hall posted a great article about Cleaner OLAP Cube Physical Folder Structures earlier this month on SAS's Real BI for Real Users blog.

In her article, Angela gave a "below the water line" view of OLAP cubes and how they are maintained and stored. Her tips for cube rationalisation will reduce disk space usage and improve performance. Well worth a look.
