This enhancement to the Vertica AWS Auto Scaling open-source package makes it quite easy to create a working replica of your existing cloud-hosted or on-premise Vertica cluster in Amazon Web Services.
Did you know that you can use an Elastic Load Balancer (ELB) to connect to your Vertica cluster running on Amazon Web Services? You can, and you should for several reasons.
Are you using Amazon Web Services for your Vertica cluster(s)? Are you staging your source data files on AWS S3 storage? If so, this AWS S3 loader for Vertica may be just the thing for you! It will automatically pick up files as they are dropped into S3, and load them into target tables in one or more Vertica clusters.
