Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Unbeatable speed and compression with a colummn-structured relational database.
The column-based technologies (basically all the database for ITP) are used for SAP IQ. It is used as a column-based solution.
Eighty percent of the ETL operations have improved since implementing this solution.
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.
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.
The organization who owns the product does not support it well and appears not to be doing significant development for the future.
The room for improvement would be the marketing of the product, because this product is much better than advertised.
Fact-to-fact joins on multi-billion record tables perform poorly.
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 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
The only costs after standard licensing fees are for add-ons and upgrades.
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.
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.
