Vertica-as-a-Service: Advanced analytics just got a little easier

Posted June 15, 2021 by Joy King, VP Product & GTM Strategy, Vertica

Anytime business software can provide greater ease-of-use, it leads to better business outcomes at a faster pace. What could be better than that? How about analytics-as-a-service, built on a cloud-native architecture running in your AWS account, and leveraging your own negotiated pricing and committed spend? Add the full suite of advanced analytics, in-database machine learning, and automated setup and administration, and you’ve got it all.

This isn’t just a dream. Beginning today, we’re excited to open the door to the Early Access Program for Vertica Accelerator, the new Vertica-as-a-service offering that is the fastest path to unified analytics. Vertica Accelerator is different from most SaaS offerings in the market today. It runs on AWS, but in your own AWS account, with no markup on the hardware and no interference in negotiated pricing. Vertica  Accelerator is also optimized for efficiency and query performance, ensuring you meet your SLAs within your budget. The Vertica  Accelerator Early Access Program is available at no cost and includes personalized onboarding and continued engagement from the Vertica development team. We take our Early Access programs very seriously – that’s how we ensure that we meet our customers’ highest expectations.

As part of our commitment to offering Vertica Accelerator on AWS now and other public clouds and on-premises deployments in the future, we are also very proud to announce the acquisition of Full360, a long time strategic partner with high level AWS Competency certifications and ISO27001 Security Certifications, among many other admirable skills and capabilities. The Full360 team will provide additional data engineering expertise, development operations, best practices, security certifications, and global resources to accelerate the development and ongoing advancements of Vertica Accelerator and to Vertica overall.

If your team, or other organizations within your company, wants to get started with analytics at top speed from start to finish, consider joining the Early Access Program for Vertica Accelerator. This could be a new beginning, and in a data driven world, we’re never finished. There’s always much more to come!
