Vertica versions history, release date and End Of License information

I am a new user and started my journey into exploring Vertica.

A simple Question to start:

    I have Vertica Analytic Database v8.1.1. and few of them 9.2.1.
    Not sure if they are express or premium edition. How to find it?

  • bryanwbryanw Employee

    The small blue arrow to the left of 8.1 or 9.2 expands those sections. Express & Premium have the same dates.
    I would copy/paste dates here, but the linked page is maintained, whereas this thread may become dated.

    The extended support plus is blank, Why?
    Also from other blog I could see the below.

    Vertica 8.1 End of Extended Support: Apr 30, 2021>

    Is this True?

    On November 1, 2019 Micro Focus changed its Product Support Lifecycle policy as shown here:
    One of the mentioned key changes is:
    "Continued access to technical support for customers with an active Support agreement.
    As a consequence, the Self-Help period is being removed, and
    there will no longer be an end-date for the Extended Support period.
    That's why the extended support plus is blank.

    Usually, Vertica do not commit to develop a hot fix for unsupported version
    and request you to upgrade to the version where the bug is fixed.
    Still one can open a support case for unsupported version,
    The support engineer will do his best to help, however,
    He/she might ask to reproduce the issue on a supported version.
