In the inaugural episode of the Pivotal Insights podcast, we talk about the benefits of database portability as applied to data warehousing. If you’ve never heard of the concept, that’s because it’s far from common. Most data warehouse offerings are locked into one form factor—a hardened, pre-configured (and extremely expensive) appliance. While data warehouse appliances do deliver great performance out of the box (pun intended), they’re rigidity limits the flexibility of developers and data scientists. In contrast, Pivotal Greenplum is a pure software offering, meaning it can run on any number of hardware form factors—even on your MacBook Air. In this episode, Pivotal’s Ivan Novick and Zachary Auerbach discuss the benefits of database portability and its impact on developer productivity.
