What’s New in Vertica 8.0.1? Backup Enhancements

HPE Vertica 8.0.1 includes two enhancements to Vertica’s backup capability. Read on for the details.


What’s New In Vertica 8.0.0: Tuple Mover Can Run During Recovery

 If a database node is in the RECOVERING state, Tuple Mover can perform moveout and mergeout operations as needed during the recovery.

What’s New in 7.2.2? Transfer Data with Object Replication

The new object replication feature, introduced in Vertica 7.2 SP2, allows you to replicate tables and schemas from one database to alternate clusters in your organization.

Sidestepping Catastrophes with Vertica Backup and Recovery

Accidents do happen! Data can become corrupted. It can be unintentionally deleted and, in some rare cases, you can lose all your data.


Do you have a plan B to recover data in a timely manner?


Restoring Objects from a Full Backup

Before Vertica version 7.2, you had two options: perform full backups and restore full backups (remove everything from the storage unit) or perform object-level backups and restore those individually (maintain separate storage units). But as of Vertica 7.2, you can have the best of both worlds. You can perform full backups and restore individual objects from that backup! This means you don’t have to waste time and resources on restoring data that you do not need at the moment.

Cloning a Vertica Cluster to AWS

This enhancement to the HP Vertica AWS Auto Scaling open-source package makes it quite easy to create a working replica of your existing cloud-hosted or on-premise HP Vertica cluster in Amazon Web Services.

Always Have a Backup Plan

Why should you always have a backup plan? Because something, inevitably, goes wrong. Whether you experience something as simple as a deleted record, or as serious as a full system deletion, you need a backup.
