VLDB’s greenPLUM Service


Greenplum Database (GPDB)

Greenplum is an open source MPP RDBMS based on PostgreSQL technology. Developed by the Greenplum company in the early 2000s, both the technology and the company were acquired by EMC in 2010. Eventually in 2015, Greenplum was made open source by Pivotal, becoming the world’s first open source MPP Data Warehouse.

Greenplum – The Database Built For Anywhere

Unlike other analytic database offerings, Greenplum is platform-agnostic and can be deployed on any Linux platform:

  • On premise on your hardware
  • 3rd party managed servers
  • Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Microsoft Azure
  • Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
  • VMWare

Greenplum provides unrivalled deployment options – why limit your choices?

VLDB & Greenplum

The team at VLDB have been developing applications for MPP systems for decades. As a result of our focus on ‘all things MPP’, we were very early adopters of Greenplum following its first release in 2002-03.

Over the last decade we’ve deployed Greenplum systems for dozens of clients on all manner of hardware, cloud platforms and virtual machines, ranging from single-node system to multi-terabyte clusters. Every single Greenplum deployment we‘ve attempted has worked successfully no matter what the platform – if it’s Linux, it’ll usually work. Simples!

Greenplum in the Cloud


For any business or enterprise the adoption of MPP RDBMS technology is limited by the significant capital expenditure required to acquire and develop the architecture. However, VLDB Solutions have designed, built, and optimised the deployment of Greenplum in the cloud as part of our previously provided Greenlight service, now covered under our ‘Managed Service’ — enabling us to provide scalable, fixed-price MPP capability without the CapEx limitation.

VLDB are the only independent UK consultancy offering this level of Greenplum expertise.
