How has it helped my organization?

For complex queries, which would normally take a long time, and for reporting, it is very efficient. It doesn't take a long time for the execution of any report for the… more»

What needs improvement?

The implementation of an upgrade takes a long time. But maybe it's different from one instance to another, I'm not sure. Also, one of the disadvantages, not a disadvantage… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing is good compared to other products. It's fine.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We used to other products before, but when we worked with Greenplum, as compared to other products on the market, we found it's a good product. Before Greenplum, we used… more»

What other advice do I have?

I give it an eight out of 10. To bring it up to a 10, they need to interact more with customers. They need to explain the features, especially when there are new releases… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did a comparison among some databases, one of them Greenplum. We assessed features, did a comparison in terms of the price, then we chose Greenplum. And we've retained… more»

What is most valuable?

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.

What needs improvement?

The installation is difficult and should be made easier. Maybe if the process was simpler it would have a quicker adoption by other developers. This could also be accomplished by providing training aids, such as videos to help with installation or using certain features. There are resources… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution specifically for the scalability. This solution has a more futuristic technology, as opposed to the old school kind of data warehousing. If people are interested in getting something that is more future-proof, then I would recommend this solution. So far, we're… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have used Oracle and Microsoft SQL, but we haven't had much success. We found that Oracle was not as scalable and we were having some performance bottlenecks. Also, from a licensing perspective, Greenplum was a better choice. For all of these reasons, we have chosen to invest heavily in… more»

What is most valuable?

It's a good core database. Scalability and performance are very good. I also like the fact the solution is open-source, so you can use it free of charge.

What needs improvement?

Some integration with other platforms like design tools, and ETL development tools, that will enable some advanced functionality (like fully down processing, etc.) would be helpful in future releases. Also, if the solution could offer automated creation of DDL statements from power designers, for… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It's open-source, so it's free to use.

What other advice do I have?

I'm a partner that works mainly with enterprises. Mostly the partners are big telcos and we deal with tens of terabytes of data. MPP and columnar databases are the future of the analytical landscape. The era of appliances is over, so implementation of an MPP database on-premises or on the cloud is… more»

What do you think of Pivotal Greenplum?

What is our primary use case?

The primary use of this solution is for horizontal scalability. We have an on-premises deployment.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for us is horizontal scaling.

What needs improvement?

The deployment process for this solution could be made easier. I saw some limitation with respect to the column store, and removing this would be an improvement.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for about two months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is stable enough. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We are not yet sure about scalability, but we will see in the future.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not been in touch…

What is most valuable?

* Very fast for query processing * Parallel load * Polymorphic storage

How has it helped my organization?

Before we had Oracle Exadata, some queries would take more than 20 hours of execution. With Greenplum, it take a few minutes.

What needs improvement?

It will be very useful if we could communicate with other database types from Greenplum (using a database link).

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

It is the best product with best fit for price/performance customer objectives.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Yes, Oracle Exadata. Performance was the main criteria for switching to Greenplum.

What other advice do I have?

I encourage other customer to try Greenplum, specifically for DWH use. It is a very useful product.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Oracle technology that we used before.
