Two distinct trends are converging. The cloud is proving immensely useful in providing elastic, measurable, on-demand and self-service resources to organizations of all sizes. The uptake in 2018 has been phenomenal, continuing the biggest transformation that technology professionals will experience in their careers. Also, all organizations are relying even more than before on analytical databases to load, store, and analyze volumes of data at high speed to derive timely insights.
An independent benchmark study was conducted to assess query performance, concurrency impact and cost-effectiveness of Vertica and Snowflake running in the AWS Cloud. The benchmark (expanding upon UC Berkeley’s Big Data Benchmark) simulated scenarios to answer fundamental business questions that every enterprise might encounter and ask.
In this webinar, we will discuss the very interesting, need-to-know results and key takeaways of the benchmark. We will also discuss how to achieve high-performance and scalable analytics in the cloud and augment current, on-premises platforms in a cost-effective manner, continuing your journey to being data-driven.
