Title Capacity Planning for the Data Warehouse
Author Bill Inmon
Description The data warehouse environment - like all other computer environments - requires hardware resources. Given the volume of data and the type of processing that goes against the data, the data warehouse is capable of consuming large amounts of resources. For organizations that want to be in a proactive stance - where hardware resource utilization is not a surprise and the response time of a system is anticipated ahead of building the system, capacity planning for the data warehouse environment is a very important exercise. There are several aspects to the data warehouse environment that make capacity planning for the data warehouse a unique exercise. The first factor is that the workload for the data warehouse environment is very variable. In many ways trying to anticipate the DSS workload requires imagination.

This factor, in and of itself, makes capacity planning for the data warehouse a chancy exercise.
