Vertica Systems, a provider of real-time analytics platforms, today unveiled the latest version of its Vertica Analytics Platform, version 4.1, which provides performance enhancements for large-scale operations - including loads, queries, deletes and updates - and improves "out-of-the-box" integration with third-party tools.
Vertica 4.1 also upgrades the software's security and compliance functionality to offer a more complete solution for government and public sector customers.
As part of the effort to tighten Vertica's ability to integrate with the business analytics ecosystem, Vertica 4.1 includes enhancements that make connecting to and sharing data with best-of-breed third-party tools and solutions easier, according to the vendor. Refined adherence to industry specifications and support for SQL Macros make the software easier to use and more efficient to run, and better connectors for third-party tools give users more flexibility and better performance with their preferred solutions for data loading, visualization and reporting.
As part of the 4.1 release, Vertica also delivers enhancements to the software's security and compliance features, including identity management and more robust authentication designed to support Vertica's active expansion into the government and public sector markets. As part of the enhanced security features, Vertica 4.1 offers the ability to create user profiles for different classes of users, with parameters that define user authentication policies. Flexible authentication profiles allow controls of the length and complexity of user passwords, how often users must change their passwords and a host of policies for protecting access.
