    Product(s): Vertica

    Implementation was easy, but make sure your application design aligns with product

    Overall Comment

    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.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Review application & database design with HPE for fit before selecting.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Performance and scalability for read-only workloads.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Performance for insert/update workloads.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Emphasize importance of application design fit.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Spend more time validating fit of application design and product strengths/weaknesses.

    Service & support - overall comment

    High quality and timely service and support. User community is very limited.
