I ran across this review, Vectorwise – Worth a Look? by Steve Miller and was wondering if anyone else had seen it or reviewed Vectorwise?
His non-complete evaluation resulted in:
The results I’ve gathered so far for my admittedly non-strenuous tests are nonetheless encouraging. My first experiment was loading a 600,000 row fact table with nine small star lookups from csv files. The big table load takes two seconds and all the queries I’ve attempted, even ones with a six table join, complete in a second or two.
The second test involved loading a 10 million+ row, four attribute, csv stock performance data set along with a 3000 record lookup. The big table imports in 7 seconds. Group-by queries that join to the lookup complete in under three seconds.
There is a 30-day free trial version for Windows.
BTW, can anyone forward me the technical white paper on Vectorwise? The last white paper I signed up for was a marketing document and not even a very good one of those.
