About Vertica Analytics Platform
Vertica Analytics Platform is a data warehouse management system optimized for large-scale, rapidly-growing datasets. By using a column-oriented architecture (instead of row-oriented), Vertica can offer high-speed query performance for your business intelligence, machine learning, and other query-intensive systems. Vertica is compatible with a variety of cloud data warehouse servers such as Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and on-premises. The platform also offers its "Eon Mode," which achieves optimum performance by separating computational processes from storage processes. Eon Mode is available when hosting the platform on AWS or when using Pure Storage Flashblade on-premises. Vertica is an open-source product that is free to use up to certain data limitations.
About MongoDB Atlas
MongoDB Atlas is a cloud database service for applications that works with Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. The database service seeks to comply with the most stringent data security and privacy standards while offering a reliable suite of drivers, tools, and integrations. By automating numerous database management tasks, MongoDB Atlas helps developers build apps faster with less human error.
Vertica Analytics Platform's End Points
Vertica Massively Parallel Processing (MPP)
Through its MPP architecture, Vertica distributes requests across different nodes. This brings the benefit of virtually unlimited linear scalability.
Vertica Column-Oriented Storage
Veritica's column-oriented storage architecture provides faster query performance when managing access to sequential records. This advantage also has the adverse effect of slowing down normal transactional queries like updates, deletes, and single record retrieval.
Vertica Workload Management Automation
With its workload management features, Vertica allows you to automate server recovery, data replication, storage optimization, and query performance tuning.
Vertica Machine Learning Capabilities
Vertica includes a number of machine learning features in-database. These include 'categorization, fitting, and prediction,' which bypasses down-sampling and data movement for faster processing speed. There are also algorithms for logistic regression, linear regression, Naive Bayes classification, k-means clustering, vector machine regression/classification, random forest decision trees, and more.
Vertica In-Built Analytics Features
Through its SQL-based interface, Vertica provides developers with a number of in-built data analytics features such as event-based windowing/sessionization, time-series gap filling, event series joins, pattern matching, geospatial analysis, and statistical computation.
Vertica SQL-Based Interface
Vertica's SQL based interface makes the platform easy to use for the widest range of developers.
Vertica Shared-Nothing Architecture
Vertica's shared-nothing architecture is a strategy that lowers system contention among shared resources. This offers the benefit of slowly lowering system performance when there is a hardware failure.
Vertica High Compression Features
Vertica batches updates to the main store. It also saves columns of homogenous data types in the same place. This helps Vertica achieve high compression for greater processing speeds.
Vertica Kafka and Spark Integrations
Vertica features native integrations for a variety of large-volume data tools. For example, Vertica includes a native integration for Apache Spark, which is a general-purpose distributed data processing engine. It also includes an integration for Apache Kafka, which is a messaging system for large-volume stream processing, metrics collection/monitoring, website activity tracking, log aggregation, data ingestion, and real-time analytics.
Vertica Cloud Platform Compatibility
Vertica runs on a variety of cloud-based platforms including Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, and on-premises. It can also run natively using Hadoop Nodes.
Vertica Programming Interface Compatibility
Vertica is compatible with the most popular programming interfaces such as OLEDB, ADO.NET, ODBC, and JDBC.
Vertica Third-Party Tool Compatibility
A large number of data visualization, business intelligence, and ETL (extract, transform, load) tools offer integrations for Vertica Analytics Platform. For example, Integrate.io's ETL-as-a-service tool offers a native integration to connect with Vertica.
MongoDB Atlas's End Points
MongoDB Atlas Automated Features
The automated security features included in MongoDB Atlas let you monitor who has access to your data while securing your information against unwanted intrusions. Also, due to the platform's automation of mundane operational tasks — like provisioning and configuration, patching and upgrades, monitoring and alerts, advanced security automation, and disaster recovery — you don't have to be a data science expert to set up and run your databases.
MongoDB Advanced Security Automation
MongoDB Atlas provides a variety of database security layers including advanced access control, IP whitelists, in-flight data encryption through TLS/SSL, optional encryption of your file system, and network isolation through Amazon VPCs and VPC Peering.
MongoDB Atlas Built-In Replication
MongoDB Atlas offers multiple servers to provide 'always-on' availability. Even if your primary master goes down, multiple backups ensure that your system is always up and running.
MongoDB Atlas Backups and Time-Machine Recovery
The advanced backup and recovery features for MongoDB Atlas guard against data corruption. Whether the threat is from hackers or a team member's innocent mistake, you can rest easy knowing that, after a catastrophic, event you'll have a backup copy to recover your system from a specific time in the past.
MongoDB Atlas Detailed Statistics and Monitoring
MongoDB Atlas provides detailed information and statistics about your database systems. By organizing this information in numerous ways, the platform helps you understand when important changes or upgrades to your system may be necessary. Moreover, if it's time to make changes, you can provision new server instances in a flash.
MongoDB Atlas Automated Patches and Upgrades
Whether it's a new technology upgrade to improve database efficiency or a security patch to protect against a new security threat, MongoDB Atlas automatically upgrades or lets you upgrade with a single click, so you can take advantage of features as soon as they're available. Upgrades happen in a matter of minutes without any downtime required.
MongoDB Atlas Customizable Database Tools
MongoDB Atlas includes a suite of tools that allow you to select your regions, billing options, and more — allowing you to customize server instances to your desired specifications.
MongoDB Atlas Scalability
MongoDB Atlas scales up and down — or scales out horizontally through automatic sharding — according to the needs of your company with zero application downtime. This allows you to grow beyond the limitations of one server without making your application too complex. Moreover, the platform's automatic balancing keeps information equally distributed across multiple replica sets as your data volumes grow, or as your cluster increases or decreases.
