2. Vector Concepts : VECTORWISE Storage Type
Share this page                  
By default, Vector uses the VECTORWISE storage structure.
The VECTORWISE storage type differs from traditional Ingres storage types in the following ways:
Queries accessing VECTORWISE tables use an alternative execution module that is optimized for analytical processing.
A query that accesses tables using VECTORWISE storage cannot access tables using other Ingres storage types.
Some operations are not available when using the VECTORWISE storage type.
