We use it to warehouse data to log every customer action and call that flows through our network. It's also referenced for customer billing and is replicated across. We do have a mandated requirement to keep this data available for 7 years.

IQ itself solves the big issue of warehousing large amounts of data.
  • It recovers nicely and with minimal downtime.
  • It works well on the Linux OS.
  • It's easy for our DBA to work with and maintain.
  • The pricing schedule is a bit expensive and cumbersome.
  • Licensing for a virtual machine is difficult to understand.
It is very well suited for large warehousing applications. It is less suited for databases that need to do computational work.

We use this columnar relational database software in the business for the purpose of having a data warehouse and also a data mart that would store business data and enable users to run leverage these for intelligent and informed business decisions on a day to day basis. This is the main database that supports our data warehouse.
  • Superior performance in getting results for query
  • Ability to scale up as data size/volume increase
  • In memory solution and hence enhanced speed
  • Initial set up can be more intuitive
  • More documentation to help users who are ramping up on learning curve to get used to this product
Does data compression very well, produces query results very quickly, ability to scale up as data volume/size grow in an organization, row level versioning is in memory and hence the speed. It is a very stable product for large enterprises. More detailed documentation on how to use this product in the initial stages would be really welcome.
