Many data-driven companies have adopted HDFS to collect, store, and manage large volumes of varying forms of data. However, multiple copies of everything, inadequate concurrent data access, and an overall lack of analytical performance has resulted in limited business value.
Vertica provides a Unified Analytics Warehouse so organizations can finally bring the data lake and data warehouse together. You can analyze Parquet and ORC including complex data types in place, and optimize key data sets for blazing fast analytics, all using HDFS for safe distributed storage. With Vertica, your BI and data science teams can analyze data at once to squeeze maximum value out of your Hadoop investment.
