We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features are the ability to process the machine data at a high speed, and to add structure to our data so that we can generate relevant analytics."
"The best thing about this solution is that it is very powerful and very cheap."
"What comes with the standard setup is what we mostly use, but Ambari is the most important."
"The ability to add multiple nodes without any restriction is the solution's most valuable aspect."
"It's good for storing historical data and handling analytics on a huge amount of data."
"The most valuable feature is the database."
"The most valuable features are powerful tools for ingestion, as data is in multiple systems."
"The solution is easy to expand. We haven't seen any issues with it in that sense. We've added 10 servers, and we've added two nodes. We've been expanding since we started using it since we started out so small. Companies that need to scale shouldn't have a problem doing so."
"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."
"We would like to have more dynamics in merging this machine data with other internal data to make more meaning out of it."
"The upgrade path should be improved because it is not as easy as it should be."
"In the next release, I would like to see Hive more responsive for smaller queries and to reduce the latency."
"There is a lack of virtualization and presentation layers, so you can't take it and implement it like a radio solution."
"The solution could use a better user interface. It needs a more effective GUI in order to create a better user environment."
"It would be good to have more advanced analytics tools."
"It would be helpful to have more information on how to best apply this solution to smaller organizations, with less data, and grow the data lake."
"The solution needs a better tutorial. There are only documents available currently. There's a lot of YouTube videos available. However, in terms of learning, we didn't have great success trying to learn that way. There needs to be better self-paced learning."
"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."
"This is a low cost and powerful solution."
"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."
