Pivotal Greenplum's shared-nothing architecture.The most valuable feature for us is horizontal scaling.Scalability is simple because it's an MPP database. If you need more processing power or you need more storage, you just add a few more nodes in the cluster. It works on common commodity hardware. You can use any type of server. You don't need to have proprietary hardware. It's fairly flexible.We chose Greenplum because of the architecture in terms of clustering databases and being able to have, or at least utilize the resources that are sitting on a database.

An additional feature I would you like to see included in the next release, is that it needs to be more cloud-friendly.The user interface needs to be improved.I would like to see an improved Knowledge Base on the web.It needs a teaching web site with more training on third-party tools used for BI.
