Vertica is an amazing data warehouse!

What do you like best?
Columnar storage makes for fast data access. Lots of storage on fewer nodes. Use of projections is an intuitive way to manage tables and help optimize queries. Great customer service, very responsive! And comprehensive training allows you to be able to manage and administer the system with ease, using tech support as a last resort.
What do you dislike?
I am finding it difficult to find anything to dislike about this system.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We use our data warehouse to run queries, reports and analytics on billions of rows of clickstream data. Our old data warehouse solution was extremely slow, and required 1 nodes to house 30TB of data. With Vertica we only require six nodes that require far less involvement from tech support to maintain. Queries ran faster right out of the box prior to any additional optimization. We are now moving toward being able to provide close to real time analytics for our clients!
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Go through with a POC, it will open your eyes to the benefits Vertica will have on your system.

Great for big data

  • October 04, 2012

What do you like best?
Handles a TON of data and is super fast and cheap for the amount of data it can hold. Querying a 500+ million row table is no problem. It's great for archival data.
What do you dislike?
Joins are a little clunky and slow. Performance may vary overall based on how well the system is fine-tuned to your needs. Fine-tuning requires some skill.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If you have a lot of data and need to be able to access it quickly, then Vertica may work for you. If not, you'll probably be better off going with a more common/easier to set-up database system.
