Technical Exploration: Permabit Albireo Virtual Data Optimizer
The Goal of this Technical Exploration
Vertica engineers performed this exploration to determine how architecturally transparent Permabit's Albireo Virtual Data Optimizer (VDO) is in a typical small Vertica implementation, and to report any observations about how the VDO could be best integrated into a Vertica environment.
This project was not an exploration of the VDO de-dupe or compression capabilities. In addition, this project should not be construed as qualification testing of Vertica using LVM (logical volume management) volumes, which are a base requirement of VDO. Vertica does not officially support LVM volumes, but it is on the roadmap for future releases.
