  • A brief introduction to Vertica PDM peculiarities (just to set a common ground)
  • ROS container structure
  • What is Encoding? and Why Encoding Matters
  • Definition of currently available encoding types
  • How to measure your encoding footprint in term of both storage and CPU cycles
  • How to define “optimal” encoding
  • Step-by-step model optimization: We’ll start with a simple model, and measure CPU/disk costs. Then we’ll optimize the model and discuss results in terms of query performance, as well as CPU and disk footprint
