Storage includes only the cube metadata. It includes all the source data from the fact table. The aggregations defined by dimensions related to the measure group. The amount of data stored in the storage mode and the number of aggregations. The amount of data stored affects query performance. Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services uses storage of cube data and aggregations Storage options modes and locations that are most appropriate for cube data An algorithm designs efficient summary aggregations to storage without speed Storage is not allocated for empty cells. Storage on a partition-by-partition basis. At least one partition exists for each measure group in a cube. See Partitions (Analysis Services - Multidimensional Data), Partition Storage Modes and Processing. Measures and Measure Groups, Create Measures and Measure Groups in Multidimensional Models
Storage for a measure group can be dividing into many partitions. Partitions measure group into segments on a single server or across many servers. And to optimize storage and query performance. Each partition in a measure data source and stored using different storage settings The data source for a partition when you create it. You can also change the data source for any existing partition. A measure group can partition vertical or horizontal. Each partition in a vertical partitioned filtered view of a single source table. If a measure single table that contains several years of data. You could create a separate partition for each year's data. In contrast, each partition in a horizontal partitioned measure separate table. Use horizontal partitions if the data source stores each year's data in a separate table Partitions created with the same storage settings as the measure group created. The details of storage and aggregation data are stored in on the Analysis Services. In the relational format on the source server or a combination of both. Storage settings also determine whether proactive caching to process source data. Changes to the multidimensional data stored on the Analysis Services The partitions of a cube are not visible to the user. But, the choice of storage settings for different partitions may affect the data. The amount of disk space used, and query performance. Partitions can store on many instances of Analysis Services. This provides a clustered approach to cube storage and distributes Analysis Services servers. For more information, see Partition Storage Modes and Processing. Remote Partitions and Partitions.
It can disk space to store many copies of a cube on different instances of Analysis Services. But you can reduce the space replacing the copies of the measure group. A linked measure group is in a measure group in a cube in another Analysis Services database. The same or a different instance of Analysis Services. A linked measure group can also use with linked dimensions from the same source cube. The linked dimensions and measure groups use source cube and no data storage of their own. So, by maintaining the source measure groups and dimensions in one database. Creating linked cubes and dimensions in cubes in other databases. You can save disk space that otherwise would use for storage.
