Using Eon Mode

You can operate your Vertica database in Eon Mode instead of in Enterprise Mode. 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.

An Eon Mode database must be deployed on Amazon Web Services. You can use the Management Console to provision an Eon Mode database. (Enterprise Mode also supports deployment on AWS and also supports on-premise hardware and other cloud platforms.)

Vertica does not support upgrading or reviving a database running on any previous beta version to the current version. New databases created in Eon Mode in Vertica version 9.1 and later can be upgraded and revived.
