Should the data warehouse be deployed on the cloud? IDC addresses this question on a regular basis. As adoption of cloud software increases, organizations of all sizes across industries and geographic regions are evaluating and assessing the opportunities and challenges of deploying software on the cloud. Data warehousing solutions are no exception to this trend.
This paper documents the experiences of nine Teradata Cloud customers based on anonymous interviews with knowledgeable persons. The table below lists the companies, along with their specific challenges.
In conference rooms worldwide, enterprise IT departments are evaluating entry into ‘the cloud’. Armed with media reports and marketing materials, they are considering questions like, “Is the cloud appropriate for critical workloads? Will the cloud really save time and money? Does the cloud pose a security risk?”
There’s only one problem with such due diligence: there’s no such thing as ‘the cloud’. Instead, there are multiple clouds, with different configurations, offered by different providers and representing different degrees of benefit and risk.
Simply put, it’s an evolution. Cloud computing is following the same pattern of other technologies that have shaped business and society. Take electricity, for example. Even after the first public power supply lit the streets, it took time for businesses to learn how to really capitalize on this new technology. In those early days, people were enthralled by artificial lighting – one of the earliest applications of electricity. Very few could fathom the innumerable product innovations, business models and industries that would ultimately be built upon this technology.
This paper reviews the increasingly popular OpenStack cloud platform and the abilities that IBM storage solutions provide to enable and enhance OpenStack deployments. But before addressing those specifics, it is useful to remind ourselves of the “whys and wherefores” of cloud computing.

Snowflake eliminates the data warehouse and infrastructure overhead that has traditionally consumed time and resources.That frees resources to focus on getting insight from data and driving business value.
IDC believes that EMC Isilon is indeed an easy to operate, highly scalable and efficient Enterprise Data Lake Platform. IDC validated that a shared storage model based on the Data Lake can in fact provide enterprise-grade service-levels while performing better than dedicated commodity off-the-shelf storage for Hadoop workloads.
