Pivotal Greenplum vs Amazon Redshift

March 21, 2017

Understanding an Alternative to Redshift

With continued growth of data sizes and evolving data consumer needs, the data engine has been forced to adapt. 20 years ago, there were only a few massively parallel processing (MPP) database systems, all of which were both proprietary and expensive. During this time, a open-source movement emerged that weakened the proprietary systems hold on the market.

In this free white paper, you will read how open-source database systems became mature enough for developers to take a look at adapting them to the MPP design. Specifically, we will take an in-depth, technological look at how Pivotal Greenplum compares to AWS Redshift.

In this free analysis, you will learn about the key differentiators between the two data warehouses. Specifically around:

  • Open Source and PostgreSQL Origins
  • Elasticity
  • Flexibility in Table Design and Optimization
  • Extensive and Advanced Analytics Library
  • Fast Parallel Data Loading, Unloading, and Processing
  • Resource Queues and Workload Management
  • System Administrations
  • Professional Services and Support
