Star schema or snowflake schema or flat file?

Hi,

I have only one short question regarding data model.

If we have small data set than it is probably not so important how we structure our data model (all data in a one flat file).

The question is: if we have larger data sets, should we always tray to build a star schema in our data model?

Snowflake has more joins (it is more normalized) and i think we could suffer some performance penalties in case of a larger data sets.

Is my thinking correct? Please write down some opinions.

Regards,

Jurij

Star schema will always be better in terms of response time, RAM consumption and the actual run-time of the script versus snowflake or flat file when using large data sets.
