Cons
"We have had some stability issues with SAP SQL Anywhere, but I am not sure if it is an application or network issue. We sometimes have a large amount of data being queried and it cannot handle it.""It is not as secure as it could be."

More SAP SQL Anywhere Cons →

"We faced some challenges when trying to use the temporary tables feature.""They could improve on customer service.""They could improve the integration and some of the features in the cloud version.""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.""Support is an area where it could get better.""The integration of this solution with ODI could be improved.""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."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "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."
