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.

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.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.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.I don't need any special hardware. I can use commodity hardware, which is nice to have in a commercial solution.Vertica is a columnar database, this support our developments in analytics, advanced analytics, and ETL process with large sets of data.Partition and join back to node are easy and simple for DBAs.DBAs don’t need to add a partition every month/quarter like with other DBs.

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.

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.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.I believe the installation process could be streamlined.There are a lot of limitations within this product and it makes things extremely hard for developers. It lacks Stored Procedure, packages, and triggers like other RDBMs.Very bad support, I would rate it two out of 10.Performance of management of metadata layer (database catalog) needs improvement. We still have to have smaller customers on PostgreSQL; Vertica cannot manage thousands of schemata.Suboptimal projection design causes queries to not scale linearly.

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.Work with a vendor, if possible, and take advantage of more aggressive discounts at mid-fiscal year (April) and fiscal year-end (October).​
