IBM® Netezza® Performance Server is a cloud-native enterprise data warehouse designed to operationalize deep analytics, business intelligence and AI/maching-learning (ML) workloads by making data unified, accessible and scalable, anywhere. With new support for open formats such as Parquet and Apache Iceberg, plus native integration with your data lake and IBM watsonx.data™ lakehouse, Netezza empowers data engineers, data scientists and data analysts to run complex workloads without additional ETL or data movement over cloud object storage.
Netezza uses AI-infused elastic scaling to enable workload efficiency and cost predictability in the cloud at a massive enterprise scale. Existing Netezza appliance customers can enjoy risk-free, frictionless upgrades across the hybrid cloud, which makes it easy to modernize at your own pace.
Scale analytics and AI across the enterprise with Netezza and watsonx.data.

Yes, IBM Netezza Performance Server for the cloud is 100% compatible with existing Twinfin, Striper and Mako workloads. It’s the same database engine that’s retooled and reconfigured for the cloud and includes all the same utilities that are now available as REST API calls in the cloud.
For on premises, in the IBM Cloud Pak for Data System hyperconverged architecture, Netezza Performance Server clients connect to the Netezza Performance Server host, which runs as a Docker container named ipshost1 on the system Control Plane node. The host is configured with a specific host name and IP address when the system is installed and provisioned in the customer network.
For Netezza on cloud, backups and restores are saved in the object store, either IBM Cloud® Object Storage, Amazon Web Services (AWS) S3 or Azure Blob Storage.

Yes. Netezza Performance Server as a service is a fully managed, cloud native analytical data warehouse, based on massively parallel processing (MPP) architecture, available on public clouds.
IBM Performance Server for PostgreSQL has been modernized and renamed to IBM Netezza Performance Server for IBM Cloud Pak for Data.
A June 2020 total value of ownership study from Cabot Partners shows that Netezza Performance Server outpaces competitors in key areas.
Netezza Performance Server drives the ability for your data scientist to quickly create, train and deploy in-database machine learning models. Using cognitive machine learning, Netezza provides your data scientist with in-database analytics, enabling them to collaborate inside one unified platform. Embedded Spark and support for Python and R enable rapid and sophisticated adoption of data science and machine learning at scale.
To migrate data from IBM PureData® System for Analytics to Netezza on cloud, you can use the backup and restore method, or the “nz_migrate” command. NOTE: To migrate or connect to Netezza on cloud from Mako, make sure you are on version 22.214.171.124 P1 or lower.
Most clients find it easy to migrate themselves due to the 100% compatibility. All it takes is the “nz_migrate” command. However, IBM Expert Labs can help if needed. Each purchase of Netezza Performance Server includes two support offerings: (1) Setup and configuration of Netezza Performance Server for your workloads, including an Operational Workshop, and (2) Three months of Expertise Connect Advanced to provide guidance on moving workloads to IBM Cloud Pak for Data System.
The IBM Knowledge Center provides general information about backup and restore methods and also describes how to use the third-party storage solutions that are supported by the Netezza system.
Currently, there are IBM Cloud, AWS and Microsoft Azure data centers supporting Netezza Performance Server in multiple locations within North America, Europe and Asia Pacific. Additional IBM Cloud data centers are consistently being added. To learn more, talk to your IBM representative or schedule a free consultation.
Built-in automation and auto-recovery available on IBM Cloud, AWS and Microsoft Azure, provide a highly available and fault-tolerant Netezza deployment with minimal intervention, helping ensure your data warehouse can run 24x7.
