Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The deployment of our solution across a number of servers using Ingres .NET has meant that we can protect the database server behind a highly secure firewall and deploy the front end solutions on a normal web server."

More Actian Ingres Pros »

"The initial setup of this solution is straightforward.""The product is relatively easy to use because there is no indexing and no partitions.""In terms of valuable features, I like the columnar storage that Redshift provides. The storage is one of the key features that we're looking for. Also, the data updates and the latency between the data-refreshes.""The processing of data is very fast.""It is quite simple to use and there are no issues with creating the tables.""The most valuable feature is the scalability, as it grows according to our needs.""I like the cost-benefit ratio, meaning that it is as easy to use as it is powerful and well-performing.""The feature that we find most useful is the ability to do analytics on the fly."

Cons
"The ability to reset the log file without stopping the DBMS would be helpful for us."

"Running parallel queries results in poor performance and this needs to be improved.""The product could be improved by making it more flexible.""Pricing is one of the things that it could improve. It should be more competitive.""It would be useful to have an option where all of the data can be queried at once and then have the result shown.""It takes a lot of time to ingest and update the data.""The OLAP slide and dice features need to be improved.""There are too many limitations with respect to concurrency.""In our experiments, the handling of unstructured data was not very smooth."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"The best part about this solution is the cost.""The part that I like best is that you only pay for what you are using.""My customers have implementations that cost about $500 a month for a very small one. I also have a customer with a monthly invoice of about $25,000 USD.""At the moment, pricing is a little bit on the higher side, although it depends on the size of the company.""The price of the solution is reasonable. According to the RA3 cluster particularly, it provides 128 GB of storage with only four nodes. If you can manage your computations processes with the help of materialized views and proper queries. I think the IP clusters are very useful and overall fair for the price."

Overview

Actian’s Ingres is a leading, enterprise-grade database management system designed to reduce IT costs and time-to-value, while delivering the strength and features expected from an enterprise-class database. Ingres 10.2 is the latest version of the database, containing enhancements that will make it easier to internationalize customer applications. Along with improved performance and reduced configuration overhead, users can take their first steps into big data analytics with the new Window functions.

Amazon Redshift is a fast and powerful, fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse service in the cloud. Customers can start small for just $0.25 per hour with no commitments or upfront costs and scale to a petabyte or more for $1,000 per terabyte per year, less than a tenth of most other data warehousing solutions.

Traditional data warehouses require significant time and resource to administer, especially for large datasets. In addition, the financial cost associated with building, maintaining, and growing self-managed, on-premise data warehouses is very high. Amazon Redshift not only significantly lowers the cost of a data warehouse, but also makes it easy to analyze large amounts of data very quickly.

Amazon Redshift gives you fast querying capabilities over structured data using familiar SQL-based clients and business intelligence (BI) tools using standard ODBC and JDBC connections. Queries are distributed and parallelized across multiple physical resources. You can easily scale an Amazon Redshift data warehouse up or down with a few clicks in the AWS Management Console or with a single API call. Amazon Redshift automatically patches and backs up your data warehouse, storing the backups for a user-defined retention period. Amazon Redshift uses replication and continuous backups to enhance availability and improve data durability and can automatically recover from component and node failures. In addition, Amazon Redshift supports Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), SSL, AES-256 encryption and Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) to protect your data in transit and at rest.

As with all Amazon Web Services, there are no up-front investments required, and you pay only for the resources you use. Amazon Redshift lets you pay as you go. You can even try Amazon Redshift for free.
