Vertica is very fast columnar database designed by a legendary Michael Stonebraker.

Vertica is designed to run on clusters and is used mainly for analytical purposes and data warehousing. Query performance is impressive, it's highly available and able to handle petabyte-scale databases on commodity hardware. As database is internally organized in columnar fashion instead of common row-based one, aggregate data is typically returned several orders of magnitude faster.

Vertica exposes standard SQL interface with a lot of analytics capabilities built-in. A range of BI, data visualization, and ETL tools are certified to work with and integrate with the Vertica Analytics Platform..

In 2011, Vertica was acquired by Hewlett Packard.
