For the past three years, HP Vertica has presented innovative topics at prestigious database conferences such as the International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE), the Very Large Databases (VLDB) conference, and the Extremely Large Database (XLDB) conference. This year, our engineering team proudly announces three talks at the upcoming ICDE held in Chicago, IL, USA, March 31-April 4, 2014.
- On 3/31/2014, at SMDB, Ben Vandiver introduces Flex Zone, one of the new features of our recent release, HP Vertica Analytics Platform 7. Flex Zone enables the
smooth data load and exploration flexibility of NoSQL solutions while maintaining a unified SQL interface over structured and semi-structured data.
- On 4/1/2014, Ramakrishna Varadarajan presents Vertica’s customizable physical design tool, called the Database Designer, which produces designs optimized for various scenarios and applications. For a given workload and space budget, Database Designer automatically recommends a physical design that optimizes query performance, storage footprint, fault tolerance, and database recovery to meet different customer requirements.
- On 4/2/2014, Jaimin Dave introduces HP Vertica SQL Query Optimizer. The Query Optimizer was written from the ground up for the HP Vertica Analytic Database. Jaimin will discuss its design and the tradeoffs encountered during its implementation. He’ll also argue that the full power of today’s database systems can be realized only with a carefully designed custom Query Optimizer, written speciﬁcally for the system in which it operates.
