We performed a comparison between Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse and Vertica based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Cloud Data Warehouse solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The performance and scalability are awesome."
"A very good integration feature that restricts access to unauthorized people."
"The solution is self-securing. All data is encrypted and security updates and patches are applied automatically both periodically and off-cycle."
"One advantage is that if you already have an Oracle Database, it easily integrates with that."
"The solution integrates well with Power BI."
"The hardware usage and speed has been the most valuable feature of this solution. It is very fast and has saved us a lot of money."
"It's the fastest database I have ever tested. That's the most important feature of Vertica."
"Vertica is a columnar database where the query performance is extremely fast and it can be used for real-time integrations for API and other applications. The solution requires zero maintenance which is helpful."
"The feature I like best is performance. We use Red Tool and Red Job for the data warehouse and reporting. It's perfect. Performance is good, and it can return ad hoc queries very quickly. Of course, it's a cluster, so it's easy to scale."
"Allows us to take volumes and process them at a very high speed."
"The most valuable feature of Vertica is the unmatchable database performance."
"Vertica has a few features that I like. From an architecture standpoint, they have separated compute and storage. So you have low-cost object storage for primary storage and the ability to have several sub-clusters working off the same ObjectStore. So it provides workload isolation."
"The solution has great capabilities. The tool that instructs the internal database forward is easy to use and is very powerful."
"The solution lacks visibility options."
"The solution could be improved by allowing for migration tools from other cloud services, including migration from Amazon Redshift, RDS, and Aurora."
"It doesn't work well when you have unstructured data or you need online analytics. It is not as nice as Hadoop in these aspects."
"It is very important the integration with other platforms be made to be as easy as it is with an on-premises deployment."
"The initial setup was pretty complex. It was not easy."
"Vertica offers a platform-as-a-service version, but their software-as-a-service solution is only available on AWS. They need to get a SaaS version on Azure and GCP as fast as possible."
"Vertica seems to scale well, except for one use case where you are on a multi-node cluster. For example, if you had a nine-node cluster, one node goes down, then the eight nodes don't scale, because the absence of the node is very apparent, which is a problem. If you have nine nodes or multiple nodes, the whole idea is that if one of those nodes goes down, then you should not see an impact on the system if you have enough capacity. Even though we have enough capacity, you can still see the impact of the one node going down."
"I have found that coding support could be simplified."
"We faced some challenges when trying to use the temporary tables feature."
"Support is an area where it could get better."
"They could improve the integration and some of the features in the cloud version."
"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."
"Vertica can improve automation and documentation. Additionally, the solution can be simplified."
Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse is the world’s first and only autonomous database optimized for analytic workloads, including data marts, data warehouses, data lakes, and data lakehouses. With Autonomous Data Warehouse, data scientists, business analysts, and nonexperts can rapidly, easily, and cost-effectively discover business insights using data of any size and type. Built for the cloud and optimized using Oracle Exadata, Autonomous Data Warehouse benefits from faster performance and, according to an IDC report (PDF), lowers operational costs by an average of 63%.
Autonomous Database provides the foundation for a data lakehouse—a modern, open architecture that enables you to store, analyze, and understand all your data. The data lakehouse combines the power and richness of data warehouses with the breadth, flexibility, and low cost of popular open source data lake technologies. Access your data lakehouse through Autonomous Database using the world's most powerful and open SQL processing engine.
Vertica is a deploy-anywhere SQL database created for elasticity, speed, and advanced analytics. Vertica enables today’s busy teams to modernize their data warehouses, democratize data and analytics to enable increased access, and deploy analytics in a hybrid cloud environment. Additionally, Vertica merges how companies power their analytics by providing a scalable, open, and elastic database with numerous intuitive features.
In today’s marketplace, organizations are experiencing continued robust growth of data volumes, and citizen data scientists’ broader use of analytics is causing many companies to re-visit and re-examine their systems in order to match the demands of an aggressive marketplace. Analytics are continually swiftly evolving. New data from social media, blogs, IoT sources, data streams, gas and electrical grids, and mobile networks is being constantly gathered in extensive data sets. This presents organizations with a new opportunity to become more data driven, and they must be able to manage the new data growth and identify the trends and sequences that can lead to both improved business opportunities and continued repeat business from their clients.
Vertica has many valuable key benefits. Some of its most useful benefits include:
