Pivotal Greenplum Review

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


Valuable Features

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

Room for Improvement

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

Previous Solutions

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.

Initial Setup

It's straightforward.

Implementation Team

In-house.

Other Advice

Read the documentation and always perform tests.
