Vertica vs Redhshift

Post by bud » Thu Jan 21, 2016 1:32 pm

Hi all,

I've been getting some questions from management as to why we aren't using Redshift instead of Vertica. We are having no issues with Vertica but they seem to think we can save money by switching. Anyone out there have any experience with Redshift? Is it cheaper/better than Vertica?

Thank you
Bud Anderson

The only similarities are that they're MPP. Redshift is only on AWS; has limited analytical capabilities. Vertica can be on-prem, VPC, On-Demand and comes with tons of extras such as Pulse, Place, analytical functions, HDFS extensions, etc.
