Micro Focus has announced Vertica 9.1, a major update highlighted by the general availability of Eon Mode. The beta release of Eon Mode was released in a previous update back in September, which also added a plethora of in-database Machine Learning capabilities, such as new algorithms, model replication, data preparation functions, and continuous end-to-end workflow.
Micro Focus has announced Vertica 9.1, a major update highlighted by the general availability of Eon Mode. The beta release of Eon Mode was released in previous update back in September, which also added a plethora of in-database Machine Learning capabilities, such as new algorithms, model replication, data preparation functions, and continuous end-to-end workflow.
The new Eon Mode architecture provides a separation of compute and storage with rapid elastic scaling up and down on the Vertica cluster, as well as just-in-time workload-based provisioning, while simplifying operations for their Vertica cloud deployments on Amazon Web Services (AWS). With the general availability, organizations will benefit from the intelligent, new caching mechanism on the nodes with impressive quoted query performance. Micro Focus indicates that Vertica customers in the AWS ecosystem will now be able to load and store high volumes of data into AWS S3 so they can:
- take advantage leverage lower storage costs;
- dynamically spin up new compute resources in minutes; and
- turn off compute resources when no longer needed using Vertica’s query-optimized ANSI SQL advanced analytics engine.
All of this will aid organizations with their variable workloads to reduce infrastructure costs, while simplifying database administration.
Micro Focus has listed further enhancements and upgrades that come with Vertica 9.1:
- Vertica by the Hour on AWS Marketplace: Available on the AWS Marketplace as an hourly paid subscription for organizations that prefer usage-based consumption with financial structures favoring OPEX over CAPEX. Vertica’s hourly pricing on the AWS Marketplace includes software and support and can be deployed in both Enterprise Mode and the new Eon Mode. This paid subscription offer adds to the choices currently available in the AWS Marketplace, including the Vertica Community Edition and the Bring Your Own License (BYOL) model.
- In-database Machine Learning Advancements: Features new in-database Machine Learning capabilities – including Principal Component Analysis (PCA), a common choice for feature reduction and model efficiency and accuracy. Vertica in Eon Mode enables lower cost and more efficient model training with the ability to easily deploy new models in production.
- Integrated Data Protection – Includes high-performance integration between Vertica and Voltage SecureData to protect Vertica data at rest, in motion, and in use, utilizing Voltage Format-Preserving Encryption (FPE) and Tokenization. Organizations can now protect sensitive data at the source and ensure that the data is always stored, transferred and used in protected form – maintaining usability of big data for analytics and applications across hybrid IT.
- Performance and Management Enhancements – Includes core architectural enhancements that will improve performance of subqueries with data joins. The Vertica Management Console also includes new management advancements that enable administrators to visually monitor how their users are accessing data in HDFS data lakes by specific table, formats, files, and measures overall data consumption capacity. This dashboard enables administrators to target frequent and business-variable queries that could benefit from faster performance by importing HDFS data into Vertica.
