New MSDN articles on Integration Services deployment and performance

The Microsoft MVPs and consultants who spend every day implementing real-world solutions with SQL Server Integration Services gain a wealth of practical knowledge that even the development team can't match. So we're very pleased to announce a first batch of articles in the MSDN Library from these experts, on the pressing issues of package deployment and performance. These aren't "buy our product" or "admire our benchmarks" whitepapers...these are bundles of best practices, what to do and what NOT to do, that you can immediately apply in your own scenarios.

Please enjoy these articles, and subscribe to the blogs of their authors for a steady flow of Integration Services tips!

(Pat doesn't have a blog, but you still have a day to catch him at TechEd Australia/New Zealand! I think he was going to be presenting on how to use Change Data Capture from Integration Services.)

We will try to keep you abreast of new information more reliably by updating the Integration Services page on MSDN/TechNet more regularly.
