  • Hi Arley, if you had previously purchased a license file, just get in touch with the sales representative who got you your previous license in order to get a new one. If you no longer have a contact, let us know and we can put you in touch. Regarding 32-bit Vertica, though -- I don't know whether or not it's possible or not to obtain a new license for it. You'd have to ask your sales rep. It was deprecated a long time ago; it stopped being available to new customers about a year ago. We would strongly encourage you to update to the 64-bit version; this will allow Vertica to use more than around 3gb RAM if you have it, and Vertica will make use of the additional address space for memory-mapped files as well.
