Pivotal Greenplum Review

A good warehouser, compressor, and an in house ETL.


What is most valuable?

I've found that the database warehouse, data compression, and ETL to be the most valuable features for us.

How has it helped my organization?

Loading batch data has really improved the efficiency of our organization.

What needs improvement?

I'd like so see better scaling, better performance from in-memory databases, and a higher compression rate. We have been facing some performance issue when doing batch loading with optimizer the scaling does works fine. They are working on having optimization techniques which made me write room for improvement.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for over two years. I have been working very closely with the EMC folks.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Yes, at times, but it depends on your modeling and data retrieval.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's been stable for us.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Its scalability needs to be improved.

How is customer service and technical support?

I would rate technical support as good and there is not much technical expertise at the start of the SR.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We tried other MPP’s.

How was the initial setup?

It was complex, but there was a change in the setup.

What about the implementation team?

We got support from the vendor at the start.

What other advice do I have?

If you want to implement this product, you would need to scale your product well before trying to implement.
