Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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.""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."

More Vertica Pros »

"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.""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.""The most valuable feature for us is horizontal scaling.""Pivotal Greenplum's shared-nothing architecture.""The parallel load features mean that Greenplum is capable of high-volume data loading in parallel to all of the cluster segments, which is really valuable."

Cons
"It needs integration with multiple clouds.""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."

More Vertica Cons »

"The installation is difficult and should be made easier.""Some integration with other platforms like design tools, and ETL development tools, that will enable some advanced functionality, like fully down processing, etc.""I saw some limitation with respect to the column store, and removing this would be an improvement.""Initial setup is a little complex. It took around two weeks to deploy.""The initial setup is somewhat complex and the out-of-the-box configuration requires optimization."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""From a cost perspective, the software is less than most of its competitors."
