Vertica Analytics Platform Version 10.0.x Documentation

Client Driver and Server Version Compatibility

Usually, each version of the Vertica server is compatible with previous versions of client drivers. This compatibility lets you upgrade your Vertica server without having to immediately upgrade your client software. Occasionally, however, individual features of a new server version might be unavailable through older drivers.

The following sections summarize compatibility of each recent version of client drivers with Vertica server versions.
