  • Ultimate control with granular elastic scaling: Incrementally scale compute independent of storage, as needed. Select the performance characteristics that best meet your workload requirement for the data capacity and pay for only what you need.
  • No awkward pauses: Manage consumption with automated or scheduled pause and resume. Spin up the Netezza data warehouse only when needed (or on your schedule) to consume only when and what’s required.
  • Predictable price and performance: Achieve faster insight and faster time to value with vastly superior price-performance. Take advantage of an hourly credit consumption model, with no overcharges or over-provisioned t-shirt sizes. Netezza scales with you to match your business needs.
