Essentially, unlimited partitions: http://searchsqlserver.techtarget.com/tip/Creating-and-managing-SQL-Server-Analysis-Services-partitions

"SQL Server Analysis Services has an upper limit on the number of partitions -- 2^31-1 = 2,147,483,647 -- but cubes that have this many partitions are rare. Don't be afraid to create as many partitions as needed."
