More on data warehouse architecture choices

The very name of this blog comes from the kind of “horses for courses” data store strategy implied by my recent post on different kinds of data warehouse uses. A number of other commentators have recently made similar points, although they may not agree with every detail. For example, William McKnight pretty much makes the pure DBMS2 argument, pointing out that a partially virtual warehouse is often superior to a fully centralized physical one. And Andy Hayler of Kalido says pretty much the same thing, although he strongly calls out his difference in emphasis from William’s view.

A tip of the hat to Mark Rittman for pointing me to those two and others.
