Data warehouse innovator cited as “bringing cutting-edge data storage architectures to the commercial mainstream”
BILLERICA, Mass., Feb. 18, 2010 – Vertica Systems, the fastest growing data warehousing vendor, has been named a “Company to Watch” in the Business Intelligence/Information Management category of TechWeb’s Intelligent Enterprise 2010 Editors’ Choice Awards for the second year in a row.
The honor recognizes technology providers that are “helping practitioners to lead the way,” according to Intelligent Enterprise.
Companies are chosen based on their ability to “improve internal operations, develop innovative products and services and rapidly adapt to changing business conditions.”
The Vertica Analytic Database utilizes a unique, true columnar, MPP architecture and pioneering data compression to reduce storage requirements by as much as 90 percent, dramatically cutting hardware overhead and energy consumption so companies can analyze larger amounts of data cost effectively. As a true columnar database it can execute queries directly on that compressed data, delivering query results orders of magnitude faster than other databases.
The 2010 Intelligent Enterprise accolade follows a successful year for Vertica. The company more than doubled its customer base in 2009 and reached its 100th customer milestone, record time for a data warehouse vendor.
“Third-party acknowledgments such as this one from Intelligent Enterprise means the good work we are doing daily for our rapidly growing customer base is being followed and recognized by important industry luminaries,” said David Menninger, vice president of product management and marketing at Vertica. “We are honored to be among the top companies in information management technology.”
