VMware Tanzu Greenplum Review

​The reports are running very fast, a matter of minutes instead of hours as it was previously.


What is most valuable?

The MPP – fast aggregation and that I still reuse the PL/SQL code.

How has it helped my organization?

The reports are running very fast, a matter of minutes instead of hours as it was previously.

What needs improvement?

It should support more feature that do exist on Postgres – like JSON datatype.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for three years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Not more than any new DB – not something particular.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Not more than any new DB – not something particular.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Not more than any new DB – not something particular.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

It's good.

Technical Support:

It's good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used Oracle Enterprise edition – moving to Greenplum due to the MPP (it’s like Map-Reduce). I prefer a SQL solution rather Hadoop or whatever – especially if you’re moving from RDBMS. Now I’m also using Amazon Redshift from the same reason and also we don’t need to manage any server, it’s only a service and this is our best option especially because we’re already using Amazon.

How was the initial setup?

It's straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

In-house.

What other advice do I have?

Read the documentation and always perform tests.
