A high-performance solution to create reports from our data mart, but the scalability needs improvement
What is most valuable?The most valuable feature is the performance. There is less administrative work and you won't need more than one or two administrators. Upgrading is very good, the IBM support is very good, migration, and the migration commands are also very good and easy.
What needs improvement?Concurrency was an issue. If you run small querries it runs well, and the performance is good. However, when you run multiple long querries or multiple joins, it has some concurrency issues, except for some date covers and some configuration requirements. Scalability can be improved. When I say that I can add new nodes to the system, compared to other systems, you have to come up with a new box… more»
What other advice do I have?I don't think that it is currently available on the cloud, except for IBM Bluemix. They will come up with DB2 Analytics. IBM will come up with a new name. Moving the data from one box to another box or moving it to the cloud or any other storage, the connectors are there but the efficiency in the movement or the data movement features is similar to USB. Netezza has already changed its name, so… more»

What is most valuable?The appliance is quite quiet. The need for administration involvement is quite limited on the solution.
What needs improvement?I'm not sure if Netezza offers a cloud version of the solution or not, but if they don't they should. Most companies are focused on moving towards the cloud. If it was on a cloud it would offer certain scalability and performance aspects it can't offer as a physical appliance. I'm not sure of IBM's roadmap currently, as the solution is coming up on its end of life.
What other advice do I have?We were using the on-premises deployment model. I haven't been following the solution for the last year or year and a half, so I don't have too much to say about it. I'd rate it seven out of ten.

What is most valuable?The most valuable features of this solution are robustness and support.
What needs improvement?This product is being discontinued from IBM, and I would like to have some kind of upgrade available. Scalability of this solution is not possible. I would like to see a better graphical user… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?This solution is very expensive. The annual licensing fees are twenty-two percent of the product cost.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?Prior to this solution, we were using a Microsoft product. It was not performing well, and not really an adequate solution, which is why we switched.
What other advice do I have?The biggest lesson that I have learned from using this solution is that a lot of evaluation should be done before starting. Also, we needed to put a lot of effort into understanding the different… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?Prior to choosing this solution, we evaluated Greenplum and Vertica.

A solution that offers good performance, but the hardware has a risk of failure and it doesn't scale well
What is most valuable?The performance of the solution is its most valuable feature. The solution is easy to administer as well. It's very user-friendly. On the technical side, the architecture is simple to understand and you don't need too many administrators to… more»
What needs improvement?The hardware has a risk of failure. They need to improve this. It also needs a system re-index. They should improve their Schema and base it on Snowflake Schema features. The solution should offer backup and restore options on some… more»
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We previously used Mircosoft services such as Teradata. We were using Teradata for our data warehouse.
What other advice do I have?We use the private cloud deployment model. I would rate the solution six out of ten.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We did evaluate other options, but in the end, we got a very nice deal from IBM Netezza.

What is most valuable?We're using several databases, about 1000, and we create lots of queries and run them from different places and from different processes. Both for the processing database and analytic database, we're using queries. It's easy to upload and download the data using the cloud or mobile storage architecture on our site. The solution offers very good management. For me, as an end-user, everything that I… more»
What needs improvement?I'm not an administrator, so I can't speak to the solution on a deeper level. For me, everything works well. The solution could implement more reporting tools and networking utilities.
What other advice do I have?For the last two years, we've been using the cloud deployment model. We're an IBM partner. We're using various types of databases including DB2 and Microsoft SQL. I'd rate the solution ten out of ten. We had no problem integrating this solution with our legacy platform.
