A fast and feature-rich PostgreSQL database

  • May 02, 2020
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
We use the Pivotal Greenplum database to warehouse website analytics data, in combination with sales and other analytics. It is a massive amount of data, but Pivotal Greenplum handles it with seemingly ease. Moving from an Oracle solution, the amount of time I spend waiting for queries to process is significantly less!
What do you dislike?
Segments do go down every so often, which can be a bit annoying but they come back quickly.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Pivotal Greenplum has provided an excellent data warehouse for combining a number of separate analytics databases. It helps us perform advanced analysis by quickly retrieving data and allows for more sophisticated queries.

What do you like best?
We had a data lake setup in Greenplum for a retail project. The DB is capable of handling millions of data and follows an MPP architecture. The queries can be made using SQL and it supports integrations with API and all. To sum up it has great features. When it comes to performance I feel it lags behind Teradata very slightly. Though it is really good and recommended to those who are looking for a cheaper and efficient DWH.
What do you dislike?
Nothing much in particular. But the customer support and knowledge base could have been better.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We dealt with integrations of different systems like oracle,Salesforce and bringing everything together to a common data lake for effective decision making
