As business expectations for on-demand data explode, many data warehousing teams have begun to transition their data warehousing efforts to the cloud. Needing to efficiently pull together data from a wide range of ever-evolving data sources, both within and external to the organization, and then provide it in a consumable way to a broadening audience of decision makers, cloud data warehousing is proving valuable.
Traditionally, enterprise data warehouses have been housed on-premises, using hardware and software located in a company’s own data center or perhaps co-located in a third-party data center. However, with the advent of cloud computing, the concept of a data warehouse as a service (DWaaS) or cloud based data warehousing is changing the way companies are choosing to implement data warehousing. With DWaaS, or cloud data warehousing, the service provider automatically handles infrastructure, optimization, availability, data protection and more of an organization's data warehouses.
Cloud data warehousing brings all the benefits of the cloud to analytical data infrastructures: agility, cost effectiveness, scalability and performance. Need more cloud storage capacity, cloud computing resources, or both as your data warehouse expands? In the cloud, it’s fast and easy to add or decrease whatever resources your data infrastructure needs.
While cloud-based data warehouse solutions eliminate most of the overhead costs and effort of physical infrastructure, IT teams still need to design, develop, deploy and operate the data infrastructure. With cloud data warehouse automation, your team can fast-track new infrastructure and migration projects and increase your development and operations capabilities. It’s the best way to maximize your organization’s return on its cloud investment.
