The uses cases are highly varied for Vertica, but it is probably most often used when legacy data warehouses begin to fail under the burden of too much data and too many users. Vertica’s capability to scale to handle just about any data load, along with its capability to boost analytical performance, make it a great match for data warehouse modernization. With the increasing popularity of the Internet of Things (IOT), Vertica also can find its place in handling the big data that often comes with IOT at a much more predictable cost than legacy databases. Vertica is open and works well with Spark, Hadoop and other technologies to support Information Lifecycle management.
