A typical Business Scenario is the following:
A large financial company performs business every day in many different countries. To succeed, the company manages and processes data from databases with hundreds of billions of rows and hundreds of terabytes. Their database management is based on a Netezza appliance solution, which allows data warehouse appliance to architecturally integrate database, servers and storage components into a single unit. The big data amount managed by the company is extremely important to analyze the historical trend of the financial operation and to perform specific actions in the financial market. The process that backs up the databases overnight, in a Netezza environment, is performed manually by an operator. To reduce costs and to ensure that the SLA requirement of having data backup available every morning is satisfied, the company wants to automate this process.
