We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The scalability of the database is absolutely guaranteed by the new features."
"The stability of the solution is very good. I wouldn't have used it for the past seven years if I was not satisfied."
"The solution overall is very, very good. It's got good integration with other databases and adds new features often."
"The initial setup was straightforward."
"The most valuable feature is the data aggregation function."
"Eighty percent of the ETL operations have improved since implementing this solution."
"The performance is very good and the aggregate records are fast."
"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."
"For me, It's performance, scalability, low cost, and it's integrated into enterprise and big data environments."
"Speed and resiliency are probably the best parts of this product."
"It has improved my organization's functionality and performance."
"The solution has great capabilities. The tool that instructs the internal database forward is easy to use and is very powerful."
"The support is not that great. They're not really supporting directly anymore and relying on experts to figure out technical issues."
"Sometimes MySQL does upgrades on the server. When we are still using the old server and when they integrate the upgrade, they don't carry along some of the old syntaxes. The versions don't sync."
"The solution should offer memory management."
"Integrating business intelligence or NLP solutions would help us save time and would prevent us from having to take a deep dive. Data problems seem to multiply on the system when you interact with it. Automation would save a lot of man-hours."
"The technical support is in need of improvement."
"Fact-to-fact joins on multi-billion record tables perform poorly."
"When it is about to reach the maximum storage capacity, it becomes slow."
"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."
"Some of our small to medium-sized customers would like to see containerization and flexibility from the deployment standpoint."
"The geospatial functionality could be designed better."
"We are looking for a cheaper deployment for the solution. Although we did a lot of benchmarks, like Redshift. We tried Redshift, it didn't work. It didn't work out for us as well."
"They could improve on customer service."
"From a cost perspective, the software is less than most of its competitors."
"It's difficult today to compete with open-source solutions. In these areas, there is a lot of competition and the price of this solution is a bit pricy."
"The price could be cheaper and it is best to negotiate the price."
