What does Facebook, HP and Big Data have in common?

Facebook deals with a huge amount of data and as Tim Campos, CIO Facebook said:

"Vertica is a key part of our overall analytics infrastructure".


Why Vertica?


"With Vertica we are able to biuld an environment that's large enough to house a years worth of revenue data (...) We've been able to dramatically increase the cycle time of refresh of that data, But the thing that's really exciting is speed"


Why Big Data?


"What big data enables is the opportunity to create data assets that at the very least helps drive teh next generation insight for business"
