How Capital Bank of Jordan gears up for rapid growth with a unified data hub and powerful analytics with Netezza
How Bic Camera increased data reporting times by one hundred times with Netezza Performance Server on IBM Cloud Pak for Data.
Dana Rafiee, Destiny Corp., explains how they cut clients’ analytics runtimes from hours to minutes.
“Netezza on Cloud gave us the legendary speed without new space in the data center. We moved ELT and SQL with zero breakage – but 10x faster. No surprise costs with Netezza. Just one invoice and you’re done.”
— David Birmingham, Principal Solutions Architect, Sirius
“The migration was simple, frictionless, and it took us just 7 weeks to get [our client] up and running, enabling them to accelerate time to insights and decision making.”
— K. Balaji, Executive Vice President and Head Lab Services, Findability Sciences Inc.
“With Netezza Performance Server, we can monitor call data reports that aggregate an enormous amount of data in order to spot quality issues and margin leak in real time. These reports, which previously took several hours to run, can now be executed in mere seconds.”
— Mano Haran, Senior Director of IT, iBasis
“With just one simple command, nz_migrate, we moved our tables, data and stored procedures from our existing Netezza into the new Netezza Performance Server, and we did this all by ourselves.”
— A leading global market research company
“Our longest queries returned in a fraction of their original time, and saw no concurrency drag running hundreds at once.”
— Healthcare client

IBM is proud to announce the tech preview availability of IBM Netezza Performance Server as a fully managed service on AWS.
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.

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 220.127.116.11 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 back up 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.
