Key benefits of OpenText Vertica Accelerator

Easy administration

Vertica Accelerator automation handles upgrades, backups, and installation, so that you can focus on your analytics and machine learning.

Autoscaling and autoscheduling

Ramp up compute automatically, with the advantage of user-defined guardrails to avoid high surprise bills.

Freedom to negotiate

Use your negotiated discounts, savings plans, and reserved instances previously set up on your secure AWS account.

Analytics that scales

As your data and analysis needs grow—more users, more use cases, more data—Vertica Accelerator can grow with you.

Data democratization

Provide dedicated workload resources for all analysts and data scientists without worrying that other workloads will slow you down.

Backed by Vertica experts

Vertica Accelerator includes a personalized onboarding experience to ensure you get the most out of your analytics setup, including cross-account IAM linkage and ongoing monitoring and upgrades.

How it works

  • The Vertica Accelerator web-based UI runs in Vertica’s Amazon Cloud. Cross-account Identity and Access Management (IAM) link established during onboarding.

  • Management plane servers directly connect, set up, and manage databases created in your own AWS account.

  • No data movement outside of your AWS servers and storage environment. Direct payment to AWS using negotiated rates and EDP.
