Is it possible to analyze the entire data universe of an entire Vertica cluster, no matter the size? Can it be done without affecting performance?

    Definitely it's possible to do that, but there's no such thing as a free lunch. There is a cost of doing, well, anything, I suppose. But for ML specifically, Vertica uses the BLOBDATA resource pool to control machine learning activities. So, like any other workload, you can control and scale the machine learning resources using that resource pool specifically.
