Vitesse DB is PostgreSQL with Vitesse Engine. It speeds up OLAP and heavy queries, in some cases by more than 180X, making Vitesse DB a viable PostgreSQL solution for data mart or small data warehouse.


By design, Vitesse DB is 100% compatible with PostgreSQL from SQL syntax down to the wire protocol and bits on disks. Current PostgreSQL applications, tools, and operational processes will continue to run as-is. In other words, there is ZERO migration effort.


Includes LOFT (Large Optimized Foreign Table), a shareable and replicable column store server designed for data mart. It eases data ingestion processes, compresses the data for up to 50% savings in disk space, and enables even better query performance.

Use Cases

Data Mart. For companies with an existing Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW), a data mart is simply a partial copy of the EDW that is focused on a single subject or functional area. It is typically owned by a department and can be utilized without impacting the EDW. Vitesse DB Enterprise Edition can function as data marts to offload Greenplum DB, Vertica, Teradata, or Exadata warehouses.

Small Data Warehouse. For companies with up to 100TB of data, Vitesse DB Enterprise Edition can be used directly as the EDW. It is much more cost efficient to acquire, maintain and run as it starts out economically, requires only a regular Postgres DBA for admin, performs on par with a 4-node MPP, and single-box instance means there is not the usual configuration and distribution headaches that come with MPPs.

Enhanced Postgres. In a typical database-driven application, the ubiquitous 80-20 rule comes into play as 80% time spent in short transactional SQL, 20% in long reporting SQL. In particular, the reporting SQL can cause big disruptions because they tend to wipe out cache locality, drain system resources unevenly, or hold on to one too many locks. Vitesse DB Standard Edition provides a big speed boost for the reporting SQL, helping to level Postgres database load during those crucial peak times.
