Find out what your peers are saying about Microsoft Parallel Data Warehouse vs. Vertica and other solutions. Updated: January 2019.
316,268 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
It handles high volumes of data very well.
It has allowed fast daily loads and analysis of millions of rows of data, which eventually moved to near real-time.
It maximize cloud economics for mission-critical big data analytical initiatives.
It maximizes cloud economics with Eon Mode by scaling cluster size to meet variable workload demands.
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.
Bulk loads, batch loads, and micro-batch loads have made it possible for our organization to process near real-time ingestions and faster analytics.
Any novice user can tune vertical queries with minimal training (or no training at all).
Vertica gives knowledgeable users and DBAs excellent tools for tuning.
Its projections and encoding are excellent tools for tuning large volumes.
It needs more compatibility with common BI tools.
Concurrent queries are limited to 32, making it more of a data storage mechanism instead of an active DWH solution.
It needs integration with multiple clouds.
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.
It should provide a GUI interface for data management and tuning.
Monitoring tools need to be lightweight. They should not take up heavy resources of the main server.
If you do not utilize the tuning tools like projections, encoding, partitions, and statistics, then performance and scalability will suffer.
It would be great if this were a managed service in AWS.
One feature, which has really benefited us, is the scalability offered by Vertica as it has enabled Pythian's clients to manage data with agility.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
It is fast to purchase through the AWS Marketplace.
The pricing and licensing depend on the size of your environment and the zone where you want to implement.
Read the fine print carefully.
I think it's starting to get a little expensive. Open source products are starting to get more robust, so I think that's something that they need to start looking at in terms of licensing.
The first TB is free and you can use all the Vertica features. After 1TB you have to pay for licensing. The product is worth it, but be aware of this condition, and plan. The compression ratio is explained in the documentation.
Start with license per 1TB. Starting from hundreds of TB there is unlimited licensing to be considered. Move historical data to HDFS/S3 which are significantly cheaper or even free.
It's free up to three nodes and 1TB, and then get in contact with their sales guys.
