Vertica was founded in 2005 by Michael Stonebraker and Andrew Palmer. It was acquired by Hewlett Packard in 2011 and subsequently became part of Micro Focus when that company acquired HPE’s software business in 2017. Vertica operates as an independent entity within the Micro Focus group with its own salesforce and support organization but leverages its parent company’s world-wide presence and offices. It is also notable that Vertica is embedded within an increasing number (a dozen or more eventually) of Micro Focus products and is also embedded by a number of third-party vendors in the same way, including Domo, Sky IT Group, Cerner, and others.
