"Netezza on Cloud gave us the legendary speed without new space in the data center. We moved back-end ELT and front-end SQL as-is with zero breakage – but 10x faster. No surprise costs with Netezza. Just one invoice and you’re done."

– David Birmingham, Principal Solutions Architect, Sirius

"We trust IBM's position as a leader in data management for analytics, and we really like the performance and the value we saw in Netezza Performance Server. With just one simple command, nz_migrate, we moved our tables, data and stored procedures from our existing Netezza into the new Netezza Performance Server, and we did this all by ourselves. It's that simple."
