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.
