Pivotal Greenplum Review

With this solution, we've reduced load on the OLTP systems.


Valuable Features

The most valuable feature of Greenplum is the Massively Parallel Processing (MPP).

Improvements to My Organization

With this solution, we've reduced load on the OLTP systems.

Room for Improvement

The fact GreenPlum is using an older version of Postgres means developers coming from other products will find many missing features in PostgreSQL, features which you would assume are standard.

Greenplum is based on Postgres 8.2.15 which was released in 2009. While the SQL syntax and functionality has continued to evolve in other platforms in the ensuing years it appears to have stagnated in Greenplum.

Deployment Issues

We haven't had any issues with deployment.

Stability Issues

It's been stable for us.

Scalability Issues

It's scaled for our needs.

Customer Service and Technical Support

The community around GreenPlum is very small, making it difficult to learn from others experience via forums or blog posts.
