Teddy EliasSenior Manager, Systems and Network Engineering at a computer software company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"It has improved my organization's functionality and performance."
"The solution has great capabilities. The tool that instructs the internal database forward is easy to use and is very powerful."
"I have found the solution to be scalable."
"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."
"It's super easy to deploy and it also supports different languages and analytics."
"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."
"We are looking for a cheaper deployment for the solution. Although we did a lot of benchmarks, like Redshift. We tried Redshift, it didn't work. It didn't work out for us as well."
"They could improve on customer service."
"I have found that coding support could be simplified."
"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."
"They should add more analytics. Their documentation could also be improved so that I don't have to bother my co-workers and tech support so often."
"From a cost perspective, the software is less than most of its competitors."
"It's difficult today to compete with open-source solutions. In these areas, there is a lot of competition and the price of this solution is a bit pricy."
"The price could be cheaper and it is best to negotiate the price."
"The price is reasonable. We use a pay per license model. Firstly, you need to buy a license. After that, you mainly pay the annual support fee of around 20% or 25%. I think their prices are quite reasonable."
"We are using the open-source version of this solution."
