HPE did a good job with solution design, platform implementation and user training. However, application/database design specified by a 3rd-party did not align well with Vertica's columnar database design features and attributes. Unfortunately, application performance did not meet expectations and/or requirements without significant redesign.
Review application & database design with HPE for fit before selecting.
Performance and scalability for read-only workloads.
Performance for insert/update workloads.
Emphasize importance of application design fit.
Spend more time validating fit of application design and product strengths/weaknesses.
High quality and timely service and support. User community is very limited.
