Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"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."

Cons
"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."

More Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cons →

"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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "You pay as you go, and you don't pay for services that you don't use."
  • "Cloud solutions are cheaper, but in the long run, they may not be much cheaper. They certainly have a lower initial cost. The licensing is yearly, and it is based on the size of the hardware and the number of users."
  • More Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "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."
  • "The pricing could improve, it is a little expensive."
  • "The pricing depends on the license model because there are several. It depends on the client, but it's cheaper than other solutions. I think it's cheap for all the functionality and robustness. It's not very expensive to deploy."
  • "The pricing for this solution is very reasonable compared to other vendors."
  • "The price of Vertica is less expensive than some competitors, such as Teradata."
