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

Cons
"The pricing could be improved. It would ideal if it was more reasonable.""They should lower the price. My customers think that it's too expensive."

More Oracle Database In-Memory Cons →

"It's hard to make it slow for a small data volume. For large volumes, it's hard to make it work. It's also hard to make it faster, and to make it scale.""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.""I have found that coding support could be simplified.""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.""The geospatial functionality could be designed better.""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.""When it is about to reach the maximum storage capacity, it becomes slow."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "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."
