IBM Netezza Performance Server

IBM Netezza Data Warehouse Appliances is well suited for use by a larger organization wanting to solve the business problems related to the collection, transformation, and dissemination of our company's business process information. These means the small data sets or data warehouse less than 1TB are best done with a different tool like SQL Server.

Return on Investment

Actian Vector (formerly VectorWise)

  • We had to move out of VectorWise after using the database for 2 years. Hence no positive impacts.

IBM Netezza Performance Server

  • It allows us to work together simultaneously in the database to query our custom results.
  • It requires users to know the object name as it does not pop up in their text editor. Thus, users take more time in writing queries.
