Vertica

We live in a world where data is the compass and data-driven companies require atomic-level analytics to chart their course. We live in a world where constant change brings new opportunities in the moment. We live in a world where the future belongs to the fast.
At Vertica, we had a vision to build the analytics platform that would meet the unprecedented speed and scale of the data we saw coming, and that’s just what we did. We delivered performance at Exabyte scale. We built analytics functions into the core of the HPE Vertica database. We integrated with open source innovation and key complementary offerings through an adaptive, ecosystem-friendly architecture.
But we saw even more. On-premise data centers remain core to global enterprises but the elasticity of the cloud is equally important. Hadoop data lakes keep all the data at a manageable cost. The ability to optimize when new options arise, when market economics shift, and when business priorities demand change is just as important as the speed and scale of analytics. An analytics database that can only run on premise, or only in a specific cloud platform, or only for limited data formats is not enough.
We built HPE Vertica to run in enterprise data centers on commodity hardware, across multiple cloud platforms and natively on Hadoop nodes. We built HPE Vertica to analyze all forms of data, wherever it is stored. We built HPE Vertica to provide a best-in-class, unified analytics platform that will forever be independent from underlying infrastructure. We believe in fast, and we believe in freedom.

At Criteo, personalized digital performance advertising is what we do. And it’s what we do best. Known for the quality of our digital advertising technologies, developed by the 300+ world-class engineers working for our R&D in Paris, Grenoble and Palo Alto.

For each of the 3B ads we display every day, we need to dynamically choose around 4 products to put in the banner. Not only the choice of algorithm has to be driven by the size of the catalog, but also by a time constraint: the system has less than 100ms to make a recommendation. These two constraints make quite challenging the design of algorithms that can take into account the others complexities of the problem such as the heterogeneity of the catalogs or the cold start problem induced by the fact that products come and leave very frequently. On top of that, the system interacts with a human user across several displays, which requires to introduce either some diversity or some structure across recommendations.
