The major issues of data warehouse architecture are higher cost, lower performance and limited access. The reasons for these problems focus the architectural design. The solutions are proposed with the new modified data warehouse design say online data warehouse architecture with the recent technological support from cloud computing say storage area networks through the use of high speed fibre channel based storage devices with fibre channel switches. Finally the benefits and advantages of proposed design were discussed with the cost, performance and access analyses.
