Overview

Top rule

IBM Cloud Pak® for Data System is built on a plug-and-play highly scalable and extensible architecture to help organizations run Cloud Pak for Data services. IBM Cloud Pak for Data System 1.0.7.8 is optimized to run only Netezza® Performance Server workloads.

Current users of Cloud Pak for Data Systems 1.0.7.x with Netezza Performance Server workloads

Organizations that have Cloud Pak for Data System 1.0.7.7, or earlier, can upgrade to version 1.0.7.8 with minimum disruption to run their Netezza Performance Server workloads. Organizations continue to retain full support of all workloads running on Cloud Pak for Data System. The new version 1.0.7.8 is optimized to run Netezza Performance Server workloads only.

Current users of IBM PureData® System for Analytics N3001 with Netezza Performance Server workloads

Organizations that currently have PureData® System for Analytics N3001 can purchase Cloud Pak for Data System 1.0.7.8 to maintain existing business-critical Netezza Performance Server workloads in a stable high-performance on-premises environment. Organizations can move their existing workloads from PureData System for Analytics to Cloud Pak for Data System with a single Netezza command. All existing Netezza drivers will work unchanged. This enables organizations to redirect existing applications to Cloud Pak for Data System. This process can also be used to move existing workloads to Netezza Performance Server with data residency on public clouds.

When compared to PureData System for Analytics N3001, Cloud Pak for Data System 1.0.7.8 appliances provide the following benefits:

  • Up to 3 times SQL query performance
  • Up to 2 times load performance
  • Up to 2 times concurrency performance than full rack
  • Footprint 20% of a full rack PureData System for Analytics N3001

Statement of good security practices

Top rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through intrusion prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a regulatory compliant, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
