Vertica is built for the scale and complexity of today’s data-driven world

Analyze All of Your Data

unified Analytics Platform

No longer move data or settle for siloed views. Access a single platform for data warehouse modernization and data lake exploration.

Achieve Scale and Performance

analytics at scale

Fear of growing data volumes and users is a thing of the past. Your complex questions get responses quickly, while you scale data and users linearly.

Future-Proof Your Analytics

analytics database

Data storage decisions made today won’t impact your ability to execute in the future. Evolve as requirements change or new technologies emerge.

Architected for Performance

Remove scale, performance, and capacity constraints with a platform architected from day one to handle the largest data volumes and most demanding workloads. Vertica delivers 10-50x faster performance or more compared to legacy systems.

What could you achieve with 50x faster analytics?

Massively Parallel Processing

Massively Parallel Processing

Run queries in parallel across infrastructure and scale-out linearly for faster performance or more users

Columnar Storage

Columnar Storage

Increase query speed over traditional row-based storage systems by reading only the necessary data

Advanced Compression

Advanced Compression

Apply advanced compression algorithms to reduce disk space by up to 90% and improve performance by lowering costly I/O

Optimized Projections

Optimized Projections

Store data in format and structure optimized to improve performance on mostly frequently run analytics


Hybrid Cloud – Deployment Freedom

Vertica provides the flexibility of private and public cloud deployment – not just a proprietary cloud, but any cloud.

Our database seamlessly connects on-premises environments to public clouds for a hybrid data cloud experience. By implementing hybrid cloud, you can increase flexibility, performance, and scalability. It offers you a way to maintain complete control of your data while leveraging modern cloud technologies.

With Vertica deployed to a hybrid cloud, you can escape public cloud lock-in while leveraging new capabilities like separation of compute and storage. Vertica helps you create a strategy for more predictable pricing with our flexible deploy-anywhere license. It’s the best way to place workloads in the right place for price/performance and avoid single point of failure scenarios.
