On Using HPE Vertica. Interview with Eva Donaldson.

“After you have built out your data lake, use it. Ask it questions. You will begin to see patterns where you want to dig deeper. The Hadoop ecosystem doesn’t allow for that digging and not at a speed that is customer facing. For that, you need some sort of analytical database.”– Eva Donaldson.

I have interviewed Eva Donaldson, software engineer and data architect at iContact. Main topic of the interview is her experience in using HPE Vertica.

No More Spool Space Teradata Query Solution

The query: SELECT DISTINCT fieldname FROM tablename; The error: “NO MORE SPOOL SPACE”. Correct, the problem wasn’t related to MySQL, that was for something called Teradata. Initially, I could see that query should be […]

Open source’s role in lowering the barriers to data warehousing

As well as contributing to the CAOS research practice here at The 451 Group I am also part of the information management team, with a focus on databases, data caching, CEP, and - from the start of this year - data warehousing.

I’ve covered data warehousing before but taking a fresh look at this space in recent months it’s been fascinating to see the variety of technologies and strategies that vendors are applying to the data warehousing problem. It’s also been interesting to compare the role that open source has played in the data warehousing market, compared to the database market.

I’m preparing a major report on the data warehousing sector, for publication in the next couple of months. What follows is a rough outline of the role open source has played in the sector. Any comments or corrections much appreciated:

Unlike other …

Data Warehouse/Analytic Appliances – What to Consider

Why was Teradata able to become the leader of data warehousing at the super high-end (e.g. greater than 25 TB’s)?  Why was Netezza only the second pure-play data warehousing company to go public by focusing on the 10 – 25 TB range of opportunities?  Why did Oracle after so many years of denial finally announce a joint hardware / software product for data warehousing with HP, the Exadata data warehouse server?  Why did Microsoft acquire DATAllegro, one of the earlier data warehousing appliances? Why are there now dozens of data warehouse appliances available on the market today, and – more importantly – how should a customer choose which one to purchase? 

In all these cases, the vendors have listened to the market and concluded that the most optimal way to serve the customer is through a true data warehouse appliance.  Given that there are so many flavors of appliances, though, here are some things to …
