Check out the files section of the Asset Management group and you'll find something new! The Best Practices for System Performance 7x white paper has been updated to version 1.4.
Starting with this version, you'll find the performance best practices white paper here in Service Management Connect (SMC) for easier access and to take advantage of all the features available when using SMC Files.
