    You can use Vertica CE in production, but as you stated there are the limitations such as no access to Support, the number of nodes and the size.

    Did CE in production is limited to one year ? someone from my company menation that he read in some place that after one year we should touch base with Vertica for softwer renewal .

    There is the statement in Vertica CE license: You may not use software to provide services to third parties. If company writes software that could be used from web-server (that belongs to goverment fund) through web-browser, this software will be used by goverment employees (count=200-300). May fund use HP Vertica Community Edition or it must buy commercial version? All other limitations are ok.

    Hi Rusian, I don't know the answer to this question; regardless it would depend on the exact structure of your organization, what counts as a "third party" exactly. Also, I would not recommend taking legal advice from random people on a public forum :-) If you'd like to get our formal confirmation, please get in touch using the contact info on our main website, http://vertica.com/ .
