Do you have the date when the new Community Edition Virtual Machine with Vertica 9 will be available ?
We do not yet have a firm date for the 9.0 VM release. Most likely it will be released with the next service pack for 9.0. The VM is dependent on all other components being complete and released. We are past that dependency, but are currently trying to solve a few OS and VMWare level issues in trying to make the download size smaller, as the 9.0 release's footprint is larger causing the VM to be larger.
Thank you for your answer,
