Traditional data warehouses are deployed with dedicated on-premise compute and storage. As a result, compute and storage must be scaled together and clusters must be persistently turned on in order to provide data availability at all times. In the cloud, compute and storage can be decoupled by taking advantage of the ability to request on-demand infrastructure. Greenplum in Kubernetes brings the ability to scale compute horizontally, while S3 and Azure cloud provide storage. This means they can be scaled separately depending on the data engineers’ needs, separating data processing from storage.

In this presentation, we will demonstrate the ability to decouple compute and storage in the cloud using Greenplum and Platform Extension Framework (PXF). Deploying a Greenplum cluster in Kubernetes will give us an elastic MPP database engine. Moreover, PXF will allow us to access data residing in multiple clouds. As a result, we expect increased resource utilization and flexibility, while lowering infrastructure costs.
