Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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.
The database becomes pluggable. Inside this container is called a pluggable database and each application contains this pluggable database inside Multitenant. We can then share resources like control files, memory, etc. This lets you stop and start each application without impacting the others. This resource sharing is the most valuable feature
The most valuable features are the speed and ease of use.
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.
That said, Oracle in general doesn't invest in their UI for any of their applications. If we're talking about the dashboard or other user experience, there is room for improvement. I'm talking about on premises. The cloud version has started to improve.
The user interface for this solution can be made better.
Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
For me, I will go with it if I have the budget. Some features are nicer than before, but at the end of the day, you always have a limited budget. I prefer to upgrade and get a specific hardware when possible. At the end, you will have to make a compromise. You will not get everything you would have liked to have.
This solution is a little bit pricey.

|IBM Netezza appliances are now part of IBM PureSystems - expert integrated systems with built in expertise, integration by design and a simplified user experience. Part of the PureData family, the Netezza appliance is now known as the PureData System for Analytics. It has the same key design tenets of simplicity, speed, scalability and analytics power that was fundamental to Netezza appliances.|
Oracle Multitenant - an Oracle Database 12c Enterprise Edition option – introduces a new architecture that enables customers to easily consolidate multiple databases, without changing their applications. This new architecture delivers all the benefits of managing many databases as one, yet retains the isolation and resource prioritization of separate databases. In addition, Oracle Multitenant enables rapid provisioning and upgrades, and fully complements other options including Oracle Real Application Clusters and Active Data Guard. p>
