Researched Amazon Redshift but chose Vertica: Improved my organization's functionality and performance
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It allows you write complex queries and perform row by row processes."
"It allows for the storage of huge amounts of data."
"The most valuable features are that it's easy to set up and easy to connect the many tools that connect to it."
"The solution's flexibility is its most valuable feature. It's also easy to scale and has relatively painless pricing."
"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."
"Eighty percent of the ETL operations have improved since implementing this solution."
"The performance is very good and the aggregate records are fast."
"Vertica's most outstanding features are the compression rates achieved and the speed of access of high volume data."
"Allows us to take volumes and process them at a very high speed."
"For me, It's performance, scalability, low cost, and it's integrated into enterprise and big data environments."
"Speed and resiliency are probably the best parts of this product."
"It has improved my organization's functionality and performance."
"The solution has great capabilities. The tool that instructs the internal database forward is easy to use and is very powerful."
"In the next release, a pivot function would be a big help. It could save a lot of time creating a query or process to handle operations."
"Compatibility with other products, for example, Microsoft and Google, is a bit difficult because each one of them wants to be isolated with their solutions."
"The speed of the solution and its portability needs improvement."
"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."
"Fact-to-fact joins on multi-billion record tables perform poorly."
"When it is about to reach the maximum storage capacity, it becomes slow."
"Support is an area where it could get better."
"Promotion/marketing must be improved, even though it is a very useful product at very good price, it is not as "popular" as it should be."
"Some of our small to medium-sized customers would like to see containerization and flexibility from the deployment standpoint."
"The geospatial functionality could be designed better."
"We are looking for a cheaper deployment for the solution. Although we did a lot of benchmarks, like Redshift. We tried Redshift, it didn't work. It didn't work out for us as well."
"They could improve on customer service."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"It's around $200 US dollars. There are some data transfer costs but it's minimal, around $20."
"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."
"From a cost perspective, the software is less than most of its competitors."
"It's difficult today to compete with open-source solutions. In these areas, there is a lot of competition and the price of this solution is a bit pricy."

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.
