Modernize your data warehouse and analytics with the new Netezza

Netezza is back

The next step in the evolution of IBM Netezza® is IBM Netezza Performance Server for IBM Cloud Pak® for Data, a cloud-native system of insight that is 100% compatible with existing Netezza and IBM PureData® System for Analytics appliances. Upgrading to the new Netezza is designed as a seamless lift and shift, not a migration. It's as simple as entering the command nz_migrate. This advantage saves time, effort and ultimately cost that would have gone toward migrations.

Designed for rapid and deep analysis of data volumes scaling into the petabytes, Netezza Performance Server delivers insights never thought possible and at a low cost of ownership. Supporting hybrid environments, this next generation of Netezza allows users to choose the solution that works for them, whether it is on the cloud through IBM Cloud® or Amazon Web Services (AWS) or a preconfigured hyper-converged system.

Netezza Performance Server is built on IBM Cloud Pak for Data, a fully integrated, cloud-native data and AI platform that modernizes how businesses collect, organize and manage data. Built on the Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform, IBM Cloud Pak for Data enables you to take advantage of a broad set of data and AI services, integrating them quickly into applications to accelerate innovation.


Achieve frictionless migration

The newest version is 100% compatible with the Netezza and Pure Data System for Analytics line of appliance offerings: TwinFin, Striper and Mako.
