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."
"We chose Greenplum because of the architecture in terms of clustering databases and being able to have, or at least utilize the resources that are sitting on a database."
"Scalability is simple because it's an MPP database. If you need more processing power or you need more storage, you just add a few more nodes in the cluster. It works on common commodity hardware. You can use any type of server. You don't need to have proprietary hardware. It's fairly flexible."
"The most valuable feature for us is horizontal scaling."
"Pivotal Greenplum's shared-nothing architecture."
"The parallel load features mean that Greenplum is capable of high-volume data loading in parallel to all of the cluster segments, which is really valuable."
"It's super easy to deploy and it also supports different languages and analytics."
"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."
"The installation is difficult and should be made easier."
"Some integration with other platforms like design tools, and ETL development tools, that will enable some advanced functionality, like fully down processing, etc."
"I saw some limitation with respect to the column store, and removing this would be an improvement."
"Initial setup is a little complex. It took around two weeks to deploy."
"The initial setup is somewhat complex and the out-of-the-box configuration requires optimization."
"They should add more analytics. Their documentation could also be improved so that I don't have to bother my co-workers and tech support so often."
"This is a low cost and powerful solution."
"We are using the open-source version of this solution."
Parallel Postgres for enterprise analytics at scale
With improved transaction processing capability and support for streaming ingest, Greenplum can address workloads across a spectrum of analytic and operational contexts, from traditional business intelligence to deep learning.
