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.

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.

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 scalability is not as expected. The capacity in the black box is not enough.
