SQL Data Warehouse

  • Quick to return data. Queries in a SQL data warehouse architecture tend to return data much more quickly than a OLTP setup. Especially with columnar indexes.
  • Ability to manage extremely large SQL tables. Our databases contain billions of records. This would be unwieldy without a proper SQL datawarehouse
  • Backup and replication. Because we're already using SQL, moving the data to a datawarehouse makes it easier to manage as our users are already familiar with SQL.

Cons

Oracle Exadata

  • It's difficult to find the cons.
  • Entry cost may be high but if you compare overall cost with performance, then it's not a big factor.
  • It does not support legacy database version.

SQL Data Warehouse

  • It takes some time to setup a proper SQL Datawarehouse architecture. Without proper SSIS/automation scripts, this can be a very daunting task.
  • It takes a lot of foresight when designing a Data Warehouse. If not properly designed, it can be very troublesome to use and/or modify later on.
  • It takes a lot of effort to maintain. Businesses are continually changing. With that, a full time staff member or more will be required to maintain the SQL Data Warehouse.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Exadata

We have done a proof of concept for both and have seen a lift with our batch processing and all other aspects with Oracle Exadata. Oracle Exadata storage servers have been playing a key role with the overall success compared to other products.

SQL Data Warehouse

SQL Data Warehousing is much easier to manage if you already have SQL Server experience and analysts who are familiar with its interface. We are currently piloting using NoSQL and Hadoop type databases but it is difficult to get set up properly. Additionally, we have to re-train our users to learn how to create python scripts and use spark to query the data

Return on Investment

Oracle Exadata

  • Lower Opex cost.
  • Simplified patching over other systems - this has saved us weeks of time!
  • Unified control - we can manage the database top to bottom. We don't have to have multiple teams managing this, one team can do everything.

SQL Data Warehouse

  • It definitely has a positive impact on ROI. We are able to use it to generate MORE revenue through predictive analytics and pricing optimization.
  • Because of the SQL Data Warehouse design, we're able to set up some self service reporting tools which allow our users to generate reports ad hoc instead of having a full time employee creating these by hand.
  • Having visibility into the data is very useful for management to make good business decisions.
