Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
Compression is a great feature, where one can really save a lot of storage.The most valuable feature is that you have the same familiar environment of an Oracle database but with the additional performance you get from this architecture.The technical support team are real professionals. I admire their technical skills and supports. Their supports are really admirable.Our machine is used for our internal development of Oracle-based solutions, PoC benchmarking, and training/familiarization.

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 technical support is in need of improvement.It's too expensive per terabyte. It's complex.We had issues with system restoration.We would like an option of a hardware-only support solution, but Oracle currently does not provide this.

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
Exadata is an expensive tool, but, considering the ROI, it's worth going for the solution.The price is very high.I did note that Oracle does tend to internally oversize things especially if they want to fill up a budget, and hence third-party oversight is essential.

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.
