Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The database is solid.""The most valuable feature is the performance.""The Oracle database is able to get the data, process it, and return it to the company's CEO's and CFO's within a single day, and thus they are able to find out yesterday's P and L by today. It has drastically reduced the amount and time of processing from seven days to one day.""If the database goes down on one of the servers, the load is automatically shifted to another server. You can troubleshoot the one that is down without affecting uptime.""The solution is pretty automated, which takes out the possibility of human error."

"It has improved my organization's functionality and 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 performance is very good and the aggregate records are fast.""The solution has great capabilities. The tool that instructs the internal database forward is easy to use and is very powerful.""Allows us to take volumes and process them at a very high speed.""For me, It's performance, scalability, low cost, and it's integrated into enterprise and big data environments.""I have found the solution to be scalable.""Vertica's most outstanding features are the compression rates achieved and the speed of access of high volume data."

Cons
"In terms of what can be be improved, I'd say Artificial Intelligence, AI. It would be really helpful if AI was incorporated within the solution.""Oracle could improve its capacity for built-in visualization.""We would like the ability to add more storage without having to upgrade to Oracle Exadata.""The product is quite complex to set up, initially. It would be ideal if it was simpler.""Virtualization needs improvement. It's not easy to back up the virtual machines in the Oracle VM architecture. I would also like to see native support for Veeam Backup Software."

"Support is an area where it could get better.""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.""They could improve the integration and some of the features in the cloud version.""I think they need an easy client so that you can write queries easily, but it's not necessarily a weak point. I think some users would need them.""They could improve on customer service.""When it is about to reach the maximum storage capacity, it becomes slow.""The geospatial functionality could be designed better.""We are looking for a cheaper deployment for the solution. Although we did a lot of benchmarks, like Redshift. We tried Redshift, it didn't work. It didn't work out for us as well."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "From a cost perspective, the software is less than most of its competitors."
  • "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."
