Introducing the Eon Mode Concept

Vertica was born at a tipping point in the world of Enterprise Data Warehouses. It was designed from the first line of code to address new levels of data volumes and analytical performance. But it was also designed to break the tightly integrated hardware and software appliances offered by industry leaders at the time including...

Sizing Your Vertica Cluster for an Eon Mode Database

This blog post was authored by Shrirang Kamat. Vertica in Eon Mode is a new architecture that separates compute and storage, allowing users to take advantage of cloud economics that enable rapid scaling and shrinking of clusters in response to a variable workload. Eon Mode decouples the cluster size from the data volume and lets...

Unlock Data Analytics for Dynamic Workloads with Vertica 9.1

Vertica Eon Mode: Caching

This blog post was co-authored by Pratibha Rana and Ben Vandiver. Running every query directly against the data in shared storage would result in poor performance and subject the shared storage to heavy load. Eon mode in Vertica introduces a cache called the Depot that avoids reading from the shared storage for frequently used data...
