We have been a Vertica customer since 2008. At that time, it cost us less money to purchase Vertica and develop a new system versus a quoted cost from our software vendor.

We are a small but fast growing company. Previous solution (Microsoft) did not meet our demands. Using Vertica made it possible to fulfill our customers’ needs. Finally we are able to deliver analytics reports quickly.

Engineer, Small Business Computer Software Company

We were looking for a database backend to allow end users (a couple of thousand external users) to crunch through their detailed data in real time. The dataset is several hundred million rows and our avg. response time goal was less than 5 secs. Last but not least we are building this environment for the future, i.e. another requirement was to be able to scale horizontally). Redshift came close in response time but completed failed in concurrency, i.e. multiple users running an analysis at the same time. Infobright came close in response time and concurrency but didn’t provide sufficient scalability. Vertica checked all boxes at a very competitive price-point.

IT Architect, Small Business Computer Services Company

Moving from MySQL to Vertica for our Analytics Database, which is a subset of data we store in our Hadoop-based Data Warehouse for real-time analytics, allowed us to make better use of hardware, drastically improved our query performance, and achieve better availability and scalability. We had reached the limits of MySQL, even with heavy partitioning the indexes were occupying more space than data and we were limited by the performance of a single host machine. Vertica’s “indexless” layout, horizontal scaling, and perfect use of parallel compute resources took us to the next level on our Real-Time Analytics Platform.

HPE Vertica allowed our data warehouse to reduce hardware and disk capacity while providing decreased load times and significant query performance increases over our prior data warehouse architecture.

Customers of my company EasyData – the Telecommunication operators and financial institutions. Their main requirement is:
- to get all the data “just in time”,
- to have no limit on the amount of data and storage time, and
- to pay a reasonable price for their data support,
- to be confident in the reliability and performance of storage systems.

All this is possible with Vertica!
