Hi,

Vertica is an "Analytic Database", not a content store. Therefore, you can't directly, nor would you want to, store images in Vertica.

You can keep meta-data about images in Vertica, i.e. file format, size, color depth, resolution, compression, etc.) and then perform analysis on it.

If you are looking for a great way to store and understand unstructured data (i.e. image, pdf, etc.) check out HP IDOL:
