News zu Data Warehouse Appliance
In computing, the term data warehouse appliance was coined by Foster Hinshaw to define a new category of computer architecture for data warehousing specifically targeted for Big Data Analytics and Discovery that is simple to use and very high performance for this workload. A DWA includes an integrated set of servers, storage, operating system, and DBMS.
In marketing, the term has evolved to include pre-installed and pre-optimized hardware and software as well as similar software-only systems promoted as easy to install on specific recommended hardware configurations or preconfigured as a complete system. These are marketing uses of the term and do not reflect the technical definition.
At its core, a DWA is designed specifically for high performance big data analytics and is delivered as an easy-to-use packaged solution. The internal software constructs of a DWA differ significantly from a traditional stack in that they are written for a target workload and not a generic general purpose workload.
DW appliances are marketed for middle-to-big data applications, most commonly on data volumes in the terabyte to petabyte range.
