Breaking through Netezza End-of-Life
January 8, 2019
The move by IBM to discontinue support for the Netezza product line has IBM customers facing a hard choice. On one hand, they can undertake a lengthy and complex migration to the IBM DB2 mainframe product—one that is far more complex and costly than Netezza users are accustomed to.
On the other hand, Netezza users could consider cloud options, renting a data warehouse solution that might appear to have better economics. However these solutions become costly when run 24x7 and are unlikely to provide the same type of performance as Netezza, especially for a large number of concurrent users.
This has left Netezza and other traditional data warehouse users without options. Until now. This white paper describes a new market entrant, which provides a compatible, high-performance, and capable product for data warehousing in a post-Netezza world.
