What is most valuable?

Currently, we are using Netezza to the utmost. We first used it for our data warehouse. Then we moved on to doing analytics. Also, we are now doing some packages on it. Currently we are using it for… more»

How has it helped my organization?

I'm working for a retail client. We have a lot of reports, which are for store managers. The store managers used to get all the reports using the SSIS package, which was built upon our back end and… more»

What needs improvement?

Administration of this product is too tough. It's very complex because of the tools which it's missing. We would require better tools for doing administration. For example, if I need to get a… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We were using a different product. We switched it because of the cost of maintenance. We wanted to reduce the cost of maintenance and it helped to drastically reduce it by some 40 to 50%.

What other advice do I have?

The first thing is, do a full PoC where you actually plug in dummy data. Start with millions of records and try out the options which you have already in your environment and see if you really get a… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did. We were actually looking at Teradata and Exadata and we chose Netezza.

What is most valuable?

* Its ability to process and query large amounts of structured data. * Low administrative support in terms of query optimization and indexing support. Indexing and data partitioning is built into the firmware. * Data compression. It was relatively impressive. I think at some point we were getting 4:1 compression if not more.

How has it helped my organization?

I can't because we're using it in a fashion such that a traditional RDMS could have been used in place of it. Our data was relatively small so we didn't see a huge benefit in transitioning new subject areas into production.

What needs improvement?

Community support. There was none, or very little, especially when using add-on software (e.g. building functions, MapReduce, R, Lua, etc.). Driver support for windows based applications. Disaster recovery support. Because it was an appliance, and if you wanted to support disaster recovery, you needed to buy two. Data center moves. The TwinFin was cool to look at, but moving was a huge… more»

What is most valuable?

* Speed * storage * RAM all of which contribute to large capacity.

How has it helped my organization?

Faster data processing compared to commodity servers.

What needs improvement?

In-DB processing with SAS Analytics, since this is supposed to be an analytics server so the expectation is there.

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

Expensive to maintain compared to other solutions.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Unix, commodity server. Switched to check this technology.

What other advice do I have?

Make sure to check the capability regarding in-DB processing with the application you will be using with this appliance. I am using SAS and it's a dis-appointment due to… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Teradata and Greenplum.
