    What are the storage structures used in SQL Server for data pages? Can anybody provide a link which would provide the information.

    Search for "Inside SQL Server 2000" by Kalen Delaney on Amazon or any other book seller. I'm not aware of an online resource that is more detailed in that respect than this book.
