You only have to read as far as the subtitle of the 2020 Flexera State of the Cloud Report to understand that more and more organizations are adopting a multi-cloud strategy – cloud spend is rising as organizations adopt multi-cloud strategies and put more workloads and data in the cloud.

This ninth annual report, based on 750 global cloud decision-makers, revealed that 93% of enterprises have a multi-cloud strategy and 87% have a hybrid cloud strategy. There are also many other insights for you to glean as you plan for running and deploying your analytical workloads, but the timing of this report coincides perfectly with two of important Vertica announcements today and our past week.

Vertica is now available by the hour on Google Cloud Platform

At the Vertica Big Data Conference 2020, Vertica announced Vertica 10, a major release of the industry’s only Unified Analytics Warehouse. With key features for operationalizing machine learning at scale, Vertica 10 includes more public cloud options for Vertica in Eon Mode with support for Google Cloud Platform.

And, last week, Vertica introduced Vertica by the hour on Google Cloud Platform. Now, you can launch Vertica in minutes on the Google Cloud Marketplace, and you can also bring your own license and use the Vertica Management Console for a rapid and customized deployment on Google Cloud.

Vertica debuts on the Alibaba Cloud Platform

With support for all three major public clouds, largely in the U.S. – Amazon, Google, and Microsoft – Vertica has further expanded its presence to Asia-Pacific regions by debuting on the Alibaba Cloud Platform.

With support for Alibaba Cloud, Vertica addresses a growing global demand for more public cloud platform support in every area of the world. Vertica can now be launched on the Alibaba Cloud Marketplace, and you can also bring your own license to this popular cloud platform.

Constellation Research and Bidtellect share how to address hybrid and multicloud challenges

The only thing we can be sure of in the future is change, and that means a constantly changing landscape for preferred deployment options spanning multiple public clouds and on-premises data centers. You can rest easy in knowing that Vertica remains committed to supporting the full range of deployment options as your analytical workload needs evolve – from multicloud to hybrid to on-premises and beyond.  This is especially relevant to so many organizations that have multiple data lakes and need a unified analytics strategy but not a mandate to choose one location for all of their data.

Join us for next month’s Webcast, when Doug Henschen of Constellation Research and Vertica customer Mike Conway from Bidtellect, will reveal Five Ways Analytical Platforms Are Evolving for Your Hybrid, Multi-Cloud Future. You won’t want to miss this Webcast, based on the key findings of the Constellation Research Overview of Vertica 10.
