Quotes From Members Comparing SAP IQ vs Vertica

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
The column-based technologies (basically all the database for ITP) are used for SAP IQ. It is used as a column-based solution.It is very robust for ad hoc DW queries and its columnar compression is unique and valuable.Valuable features for us include the compression, speed, fast response time, and easy object maintenance.Columnar storage allows high compression, high load rates and high query performance.

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
The room for improvement would be the marketing of the product, because this product is much better than advertised.Multiplex is very problematic. There are consistency problems in the metadata, meaning it is possible to lose metadata consistency. You should make sure you have healthy backups.I think the universe should be part of the Sybase IQ tool set.Concurrency and functional error messaging.

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
Negotiation is very important.Negotiate based on the features required.Evaluate all options; check to see if you need expensive add-ons.

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.
