The Vertica Analytic Database Technical Overview White Paper

Vertica

The Vertica Analytic Database is the only database built from scratch to handle today's heavy business intelligence workloads. In customer benchmarks, Vertica has been shown to manage terabytes of data running on extraordinarily low-cost hardware and answers queries 50 to 200 times faster than competing row-oriented databases and specialized analytic hardware. This document summarizes the key aspects of Vertica's technology that enable such dramatic performance benefits, and compares the design of Vertica to other popular relational systems.
