IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

Vertica Room for Improvement

Every product has room for improvement and Vertica is no different in that way. 

I think the geospatial is quick, but could be quicker.

Continue adding machine learning code to run directly on the database.  

I also think the ability to perhaps directly link to other databases rather than just data sources and files would be another one.  

For new functionality, I think the possibility of adding triggers or programmatic pieces of code might be helpful, depending on the data coming in. It is difficult to say if it would work or cause more issues than it solves.

The product could be less expensive and could benefit from a better marketing strategy. 
In a future release, I would like to have one application to help create intelligent models.

Some of our small to medium-sized customers would like to see containerization and flexibility from the deployment standpoint. They don't currently offer this as a platform as a service. Snowflake is offering this capability.

They're available in the cloud. They're available on every cloud, but they're not available as a managed platform as a service offering.

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 know that's in their roadmap, but I can't wait.

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.

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.

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.

In other versions of Vertica, there is a lack of integrations in some machine learning models. But today, the latest version has it all. I don't think they need too much improvement in that area. For me, it's great considering the use case I work with.

  • Support is an area where it could get better. 
  • 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.
