IBM Netezza Performance Server Scalability

If I was using TwinFin appliances, if my data grew to the limit that TwinFin supports, obviously I would have to buy a new appliance. I cannot just ask them to increase the memory or increase the storage or the CPUs. That would cost me another appliance. If our business side agreed to that, I would keep using Netezza and buy a bigger appliance, I'm okay with that. But the expandability is not there. View full review »

Yes. If the Demand for clock or disk space grow over the limit, it will be necessary to change the appliance, because it's not possible to upgrade any component of this machine. You have to buy a new one with a bigger capacity. View full review »

We have come to the point where we need to watch out for our capacity, as we are adding more users onboard with Netezza. 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. We are looking at the cloud approach, but we still have applications on-premise that we have to support. View full review »

The scalability is not as expected. It is shipped to you as an appliance, a black box. If you want to expand it, you have to get an extra CD,or whatever, and they come and program something int he box to release extra bits. If this were a cloud product, you could just expand and subtract as you wish. The capacity in this black box is not enough. View full review »
