Dr. David DeWitt is getting ready to take the stage to a huge ovation and is thrilled to be back at PASS Summit.
Haha, bring back #BringBackRimma is a twitter tag that he has put in place….looking forward to hearing Dr. David DeWitt speak today…..
- Why data warehousing in the cloud
- Scalable DW fundamentals
- A look at 3 leading competitors
Why Data Warehousing in the Cloud
Reduce time to insights
Dynamic adjust capacity
Appliances will always be the gold standard and cloud is somewhere in between, but there is no “free lunch”
No CapEx and low OpEx
Go from conception to nsight in hours
Rock bottom storage prices
Simple upgrade process
Flexibility to scale up/down compute capacity
Scalable DW Fundamentals
Interesting to see partitioned parallelism as a point that discusses software building blocks.
Hardware failures carrying over into the cloud…..yes this does happen.
What are some alternatives to scalable DW designs? Shared-Nothing and Shared-Storage.
Shared-Nothing is the gold standard; can be designed and scaled indefinitely.
*Storage and compute are co-located*
Shared-Storage is stored on remote storage (SAN, Azure, S3)
