What is most valuable?

Ease of migration from Netezza DB. IBM ported over all Netezza's functionality and made the warehouse DB/dashDB the best of breed of the two.

How has it helped my organization?

The warehouse DB/dashDB implementation scales a lot better that IBM BLU does. It will also be MPP, so performance should improve.

What needs improvement?

Right now, we are implementing on ESX VMware 6.0. Support for this platform is poor. Also, one of the backup/recovery options is broken and IBM is not addressing the issue.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

If your going to go with warehouse DB/dashDB, use the cloud or Sailfish version.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

This database will be a replacement of an IBM BLU database. We are migrating several TBs worth of data.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No.
