Data warehouses are useful tools, but even a small one can cost millions of dollars per year to operate. In Cloudworks’ experience the average data warehouse spends most of its budget pandering to the eccentricities of its legacy tools. Costs include:
- Database, System, and Warehouse Administrators
- Software licensing and support
- Hardware amortization and data-centre costs
- Patching and upgrades
Often the costs are so high that Disaster Recovery and High Availability aren’t configured, and performance suffers because software licensing for enough hardware is prohibitive.
The astronomical cost of running a data warehouse on commercial relational databases at internet scale prompted the creation of Big Data software tools a decade ago. While these tools are in widespread use, there are still thousands of warehouses that are spending twice, or more, than what the same service would cost with Big Data tools.
