H-P's (HPQ) Vertica analytics database unit, acquired in 2011 and generally seen as an M&A bright spot for a company that hasn't had many lately, has been hit with a slew of major defections. Two top engineers and a pre-sales/services VP jumped ship last month, and one ex-employee claims about half of the 127 Vertica employees around at acquisition time have left. Vertica, whose offerings complement Autonomy's enterprise search/analytics software, faces competition from EMC's Pivotal spinoff (via Greenplum), IBM's Netezza unit, Teradata's Aster unit, and others.
