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.Its analytics has enabled Pythian's clients to get the business insights as quick as they wanted. Its lower maintenance has also improved the ROI.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.

Cons
There are a lot of bugs in the Oracle Database, and it would be better if the bugs would be solved more quickly than they are today.In general, the support is not good since most of the time the person whom you are given to is not so professional.Integration with big data would be helpful since we are planning to load a lot of big data.A lot of features have bugs or choose the wrong way to process data.Auditing could be improved, especially granular auditing. The unified audit trail in 12c is great, however its extraction in a highly busy environment is quite a challenge.The compression does not give much value-add or provide performance benefits as was highlighted.Cloud installations using Oracle are not supported by SAP.​​​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.

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.I believe the installation process could be streamlined.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The price is very expensive for the support.The main issue where I feel that Oracle still has a problem is with the licensing. Licensing is still expensive and the reason why today most startups use other, cheaper databases. Those other databases are much less sophisticated than Oracle.​The license cost need to be optimized. The licensing cost is very high compared to other RDBMS.Be prepared to pay for consulting services, and do not underestimate the time required to find and hire good quality database administrators.

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.
