Customer Support

Vertica’s industry-leading ease of use and automated database design, configuration, and management are just the beginning of our commitment to customer support. When customers contact us for support, we strive to ensure the process is as simple and as straightforward as using our products.

Beginning November 6, 2017, Vertica Support Case & Knowledge Management System will transition from the Support Website and begin utilizing Micro Focus’s Software Support Online Portal. Software Support Online (SSO) provides a fast and efficient way to access the interactive technical support tools needed to manage and optimize your business. On the transition date, all existing support cases and knowledge solutions previously found on the Vertica Customer Support Site will transfer to the Service Request and Self Solve sections of SSO.

For licensing and software requests, please proceed to our Licensing & Software Download Portal.
