I've heard about a lot of new warehouse technology that pretty much allows access to a perfect knowledge of what is in a warehouse at any given moment. At the end of the day, this benefits the company by benefitting the customer. If Amazon truly can be "ten times faster", then a lot of products are going to get to people a lot faster. Thanks for a good read!

re: Amazon Debuts Low-Cost, Big Data Warehousing
Amazon's Redshift announcement validates that enterprises are ready for cloud-based big data warehousing solutions. XtremeData, also available on Amazon as well as other clouds, is targeted for organizations that need a massively scalable DBMS solution for mixed read and write workloads, for example, with serious ELT. Redshift (a column-store licensed from ParAccel) is well-suited for read-only data marts of all sizes. The market is rapidly moving to a tipping point where the specialized solutions available on premise are becoming available on the cloud, Amazon and others.
