Vertica’s industry-leading ease of use and automated database design, configuration, and management are just the beginning of our commitment to customer support. When customers contact us for support, we strive to ensure the process is as simple and as straightforward as using our products.

As of November 6, 2017, Vertica Support Case & Knowledge Management System transitioned from the Support Website and began utilizing Micro Focus’s Software Support Online Portal. Software Support Online (SSO) provides a fast and efficient way to access the interactive technical support tools needed to manage and optimize your business. On the transition date, all existing support cases and knowledge solutions previously found on the Vertica Customer Support Site transferred to the Service Request and Self Solve sections of SSO.

To get started with Micro Focus Software Support Online resources, first create your Passport account. You will need to have your Subscription ID (SAID) and add it to your entitlement to access support. Please note, these actions should be performed by each individual requiring access to the new system.

For licensing and software requests, please proceed to our Licensing & Software Download Portal.
