What is a Data Warehouse?

It is a "Massive database (typically housed on a cluster of servers, or a mini or mainframe computer) serving as a centralized repository of all data generated by all departments and units of a large organization.  Advanced data mining software is required to extract meaningful information from a data warehouse. The term was coined by the US consultant W. H. Inmon." (from BusinessDictionary.com)
