Quotes From Members Comparing Oracle Database vs Vertica

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
You can install Oracle Database software, patching, and create/configure Oracle databases in silent using scriptsPerformance is the best key value. Oracle provides Exadata, the engineered system designed for Oracle Database, where you can achieve maximum performance.Significant assistance in tuning both the migration process and the production database was provided by Oracle Consulting Services, which provided excellent and very professional advice.It provided better insight and diagnostics when data problems were encountered by the application.RAC clustering allowed us to improve performance and provided additional redundancy.

The feature of the product that is most important is the speed. I needed a columnar database, and its speed is what it's built to do, and so that's what really does differentiate Vertica from its competitors.I don't need any special hardware. I can use commodity hardware, which is nice to have in a commercial solution.Vertica is a columnar database, this support our developments in analytics, advanced analytics, and ETL process with large sets of data.Partition and join back to node are easy and simple for DBAs.DBAs don’t need to add a partition every month/quarter like with other DBs.Vertica enabled us to close large deals. Customers with large data sets had to be migrated from PostgreSQL to Vertica due to performance.The fast columnar store database structure allows our query times to be at least 10x faster than on any other database.We are able to integrate our Vertica data warehouse with Tableau to create numerous reports quickly and efficiently.

Cons
​Upgrade is the most critical phase for the lifecycle of a database. In order to be sure that the migration succeeds, you need to be up-to-date. Therefore, regularly install the patchset and security updates.Be informed of the known issues using My Oracle Support.​Initial setup was complex because of the odd way the application used the database, the application vendor's conversion tools, and our stringent requirements.

I believe the installation process could be streamlined.There are a lot of limitations within this product and it makes things extremely hard for developers. It lacks Stored Procedure, packages, and triggers like other RDBMs.Very bad support, I would rate it two out of 10.Performance of management of metadata layer (database catalog) needs improvement. We still have to have smaller customers on PostgreSQL; Vertica cannot manage thousands of schemata.Suboptimal projection design causes queries to not scale linearly.Metadata for database files scale okay, but metadata related to tables/columns/sequences must be stored on all nodes.Documentation has become much better, but can always use some improvement.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Be prepared to pay for consulting services, and do not underestimate the time required to find and hire good quality database administrators.

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.Work with a vendor, if possible, and take advantage of more aggressive discounts at mid-fiscal year (April) and fiscal year-end (October).​
