Cons
"Interface is not user friendly.""Fine-tuning was a bit of a challenge.""The disc space is lacking. You need to free it up as you are working.""The solution doesn't have joins between tables so you need other tools for that.""The solution is not easy to use because it is a big database and you have to learn the interface. This is the case though in most of these solutions."

"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.""I have found that coding support could be simplified."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"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.""The price could be cheaper and it is best to negotiate the price.""The price is reasonable. We use a pay per license model. Firstly, you need to buy a license. After that, you mainly pay the annual support fee of around 20% or 25%. I think their prices are quite reasonable."
