Additional enhancements include strengthened security, end-to-end machine learning and increased analytical performance.

In a media statement on the news, Micro Focus Senior Vice President and General Manager of Vertica Colin Mahony said: “Unified Analytics is a critical movement in our industry. But truly unified analytics requires proven and mature security, true deployment choice, end-to-end machine learning in production, and no-compromise analytical performance for organizations to capitalize on this mega trend. In Vertica 11, we expanded Vertica in Eon Mode to the Azure cloud, delivered support for Docker containers and Kubernetes, extended our market lead in advanced analytics and machine learning including time series forecasting, and much more.”
