Parquet Export

New Compression Options

EXPORT TO PARQUET now supports compression with GZIP, Brotli, and ZSTD.

Export to Azure Blob Storage

You can use EXPORT TO PARQUET to export data to Azure Blob Storage. If you are using Azure-managed identities, you do not need to configure credentials in Vertica. Alternatively, you can specify credentials in session or database parameters.

As with other object stores, data is exported directly to the target directory, and you must wait for the export to finish before reading the data.
