Vetted Review

I used it in MicroStrategy Cloud. It is used as one of the big data solutions provider for all the performance tier customers. Apart from MicroStrategy Cloud, it was also used with MicroStrategy wisdom and MicroStrategy Social softwares. It definitely solved the slower queries that were pestering in SQL Server and Oracle. It is the best in loading the data into the database.
  • Data loading is excellent
  • ParAccel support is the best I have seen so far.
  • Some of the bugs were annoying and QA definitely needs improvement
  • Connectivity to Informatica and ETL providers
  • Workload management could be better like when you compare with Teradata
It is one of the best fit for data analytics, but if the database is smaller than 500GB then it is less appropriate.
  • Faster reports
  • Faster ETL
  • Bugs were annoying and [it was] tough to get the resolution sooner
My comparison with Vertica: ParAccel stays at top because we do not know the projections ahead of time (which is a major performance tuning technique in Vertica)

My comparison with Netezza/Teradata: Definitely, ParAccel is economical, but if you can afford it, go for other providers as they are stable.

Leader failover setup is the toughest and lack of proper documentation is making things tough.

  • Very helpful in resolving issues
Yes
Yes, a hot fix was deployed very fast just to address my bug. Very impressive!!!
For the leader failover setup, a particular version of Corosync was giving an issue. Support directly jumped in and solved it for me.
  • Table creation
  • Understanding columnar nature of storage
  • Backup
  • Incremental restore
  • Data Compression
  • Workload management
No
I wish to give higher rating for the speed and efficiency in handling the queries, but only 6 because of consistent bugs we encounter.
