TechValidate Research on Micro Focus Vertica

Case Study: Yota


This case study of Yota is based on a February 2013 survey of HP Vertica customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“Yota’s growth rate, and the transfer to 4G LTE, meant that the company needed a unified data warehouse to enable the processing and analysis of “big data” in real time. Currently, Yota’s data volume is 10TB, and every 24 hours another 30GB is added.

Parallel upload ensures that data is uploaded up to 100 times faster than before, while the speed of report creation and random access is, on average, 10 times faster compared with the previous data warehouse. Implementation of HPE Vertica was very simple, and the transition to the new storage database was so smooth that many employees did not even notice it was happening.

HPE Vertica will help to ensure that Yota’s online data processing, currently available in 35 Russian regions, will cover the majority of the Russian Federation’s 180 regions in the next two years."
