Micro Focus Introduces Vertica 9
Unified Advanced Analytics Database Features Advancements In In-Database Machine Learning, Direct Querying Of Parquet Data On AWS S3, Support For Google Cloud Platform And Azure Power BI, And Beta Release Of Cloud Optimized Separation Of Compute And Storage
Micro Focus announced a major release of its Vertica Analytics Platform. Vertica 9 introduces an extended list of in-database Machine Learning capabilities – including new algorithms, model replication, data preparation functions, and continuous end-to-end workflow – to simplify the production and deployment of machine learning models. In addition, Vertica 9 will be available for deployment in the Google Marketplace and has further integration with Microsoft Azure including Power BI certification. With Vertica 9, organizations can now analyze their data not only in place, but now in the right place – without data movement – while supporting any major cloud deployment for fast and reliable read and write for multiple data formats.
Micro Focus also announced the beta release of Vertica in Eon Mode, which enables organizations to evaluate the separation of compute and storage for Amazon Web Services (AWS) deployments. Companies in the AWS ecosystem will be able to leverage AWS S3 for storage and Vertica’s query-optimized analytics engine for processing speed to capitalize on cloud economics.
Legacy data warehouse solutions have forced many enterprises into rigid and high-cost proprietary hardware and analytics solutions supporting only limited data formats. As data formats and storage locations continuously evolve, organizations require a powerful and unified solution to analyze data in the right place at the right time, with the performance and economics that the business requires.
“Data is one of the most valuable assets for companies, and a company’s ability to monetize their data while optimizing for both cost and performance at scale is already a fundamental differentiator in every industry,” said Colin Mahony, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Vertica, Micro Focus. “Vertica’s ability to analyze an extensive set of data formats in the right place, at the right time, enables our customers to optimize for both cloud economics and user demands. Vertica is the only platform in the industry that can provide high-performance advanced analytics and in-database machine learning with true freedom from underlying infrastructure across the full data pipeline, at the scale demanded by the world’s most data-driven organizations.”
Vertica 9: Delivering High-Performance In-Database Machine Learning and Advanced Analytics Anywhere, Anytime, on Any Major Cloud
