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.Eighty percent of the ETL operations have improved since implementing this solution.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.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.

Cons
The cost of this solution needs to be improved.Cheap and easy solutions for startups need to be made available.The price tag is very high and most cannot afford it.The documentation needs improvement because as it is now, providing support is a headache.The product is very expensive.The Oracle Database could improve on integration with other infrastructure systems like Active Directory.This product would be improved with Support Services for more production access.It is expensive.

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.Fact-to-fact joins on multi-billion record tables perform poorly.It needs integration with multiple clouds.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.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It is an excellent product, as long as the organization can afford the price tag.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.

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.
