We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
It has very amazing smart grid query feature for very fast aggregate queries across millions of rows

The performance is most important to me, and it helps our ability to make business decisions quickly.We are able to execute very complex queries. Over 90 percent of our query executions are one second or less. We do millions of queries everyday.The underlying hardware that IBM provides with this appliance is made for a specific purpose, to serve performance on a large amount of data, and to do analytics as well. It is faster, when you compare it to any other product.The most valuable feature would be the fact that it has been running for awhile in an appliance format.The benefit is really because of the additional speed that we have and, truth be told, the more updated ETL processes and the revamped scheduler in general.The data governance prospect... from what I've seen, that is a really powerful tool as well, to help with data lineage and keeping track of that.Distribution concurrency control.

Cons
Only the data from the columns that reached 2GB will actually decrease. Other columns below 2GB in size do not leave the disk.

The scalability is not as expected. The capacity in the black box is not enough.Our main problem with it is concurrency. When there are too many users running Netezza at the same time, this is when we have the most complaints.We are not able to scale. The only way to scale is to get another appliance, but we have a customers who would need us to hydrate the data between the two appliances, and Netezza does not do that.The only issue is that it's not expandable.In terms of features that I would like to see, one is the ability to actually scale out an architecture. Right now, if you buy one, it's fixed. There is no scale-up availability at all.Concurrency limit needs to be increased somewhat.LIke Teradata, we can’t add a node/SPU to the existing appliance.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Our pricing was based on server instances and it was actually very cheap compared to Oracle. I guess you get what you pay for.

The pricing is very expensive. It has a lot CPUs with a lot of components in it. It also has built-in redundancy for resiliency reasons.Netezza is a costly solution. It does serve a specific purpose but it's costlier than what's available in the market, if you go to the cloud.
