Cloud pattern in circuit board

July has been quite an exciting month for Vertica. Our three keynote presenters are now confirmed for the Vertica Big Data Conference 2020 – Vertica founder and Turing Award winner Dr. Michael Stonebraker, kingpin of the famous MIT blackjack team Jeffrey Ma, and renowned analyst Ray Wang of Constellation Research.


And, in addition to receiving a top Net Promoter® Score of 58 – above all of its competitors – IT Central Station has ranked Vertica as the number one cloud data warehouse. What makes each of these achievements so impressive is that they are the result of positive customer experiences and genuine peer reviews – not “pay to play” awards.

The IT Central Station Buyer’s’ Guide, which ranks vendors based on reviews, ratings, comparisons, and other criteria, highlighted Vertica’s core strengths in the cloud data warehouse market.

Below are a subset of the customer testimonials included in that report:

  • “Vertica’s analytic capabilities are its key strength. It can aggregate and analyze data at massive scale and neatly bring the calculation logic to the data with external procedures in C, Java, and R.”

  • “The core feature, meaning their highly efficient columnar file format and execution engine along with a great coverage of ANSI SQL, provides our analysts with a highly expressive and performing platform.”

  • “Before Vertica, we used a combination of sharded RDBMSs and Hive: the typical runtime for a query was in the hours. It’s now in the seconds.”

That’s quite a month. Keep reading our blog to see what exciting news we’ll bring you next month.
