Obtaining and installing your HP Vertica license may seem like tricky business. Especially if you have more than one. But the process need not be complicated or frustrating. For a Community Edition license, you don’t even need to go through any additional steps after installing Vertica. For Enterprise Edition or Flex Zone licenses, you’ll go through a step-by-step process in HP’s licensing portal called Poetic and then provide Vertica with the path to the license file you download. That’s it! You can even apply your license through the Vertica Management Console. To see the process in action, watch this video about obtaining and installing the different HP Vertica licenses.
