Vertica Quick Tip: Eon Mode

Posted May 9, 2018 by Soniya Shah, Information Developer

This blog post was authored by Jim Knicely. You can now deploy a Vertica cluster with an Eon Mode database instead of an Enterprise mode database. In Enterprise Mode, the original Vertica “share nothing” configuration, each database node stores a portion of the data and performs a portion of the computation. In Eon Mode, computational processes are separated from a communal (shared) storage layer, which enables rapid scaling of computational resources as demand changes. Please note that Eon Mode is only available with AWS as of this writing. EON rocks! Have Fun!
