Built-in expertise


  • Netezza technology that is designed to expertly manage database workloads and uses Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) for high-performance processing of analytics
  • More than 200 in-database analytics functions, which support analysis where the data resides to eliminate costly data movement, yielding industry-leading performance while hiding the complexity of parallel programming
  • Built-in Predictive Model Markup Language (PMML) 4.0 support, which enables prediction and scoring within the database
  • In-database geospatial analytics, which correlate transactional information to a location, enhancing applications such as fraud detection and supply chain optimisation

Simplified Experience


  • No assembly required—ready to load data in hours
  • Simplified integration with 3rd party software
  • Single integrated management console
  • Single line of support
  • Integrated system fixes and upgrades

Integration by design


  • Hardware and software capabilities specifically designed, integrated and tuned for high performance analytics
  • Patented data filtering with programmable hardware for ultra-fast execution of complex queries—without the need to maintain indices, aggregates or partitioning
  • An innovative, asymmetric, massively parallel processing architecture that supports petabyte scale
