Netezza data warehouse appliances have been end-of-lifed

In 2003, Netezza revolutionized analytics with its SQL data warehouse appliance. It featured a cabinet full of FPGA devices working in parallel to ingest and query large volumes of data warehouse data on Postgres. In 2010, IBM acquired Netezza, and recently announced discontinuation of Netezza support.

Save millions by replacing Netezza with FPGA-accelerated free, open source Postgres

Swarm64 DA enables companies to accelerate PostgreSQL performance on FPGA-equipped servers–on premises or on the cloud–and use it to replace expensive, old data warehousing platforms like Netezza, Oracle, and others. Swarm64 DA introduces massive parallelism and columnar storage into each PostgreSQL server to raise performance up to Netezza speeds.

Goodbye Netezza, hello Postgres!

A healthcare company compared FPGA-accelerated PostgreSQL performance to that of their Netezza data warehouse. The test involved 10TB of data. Swarm64 DA accelerated free, open source Postgres 11 on a single FPGA-equipped server.

Swarm64 performance was equal to or vastly better than Netezza in most cases. Swarm64 DA changes the economics of data warehousing, enabling you to replace expensive Netezza appliances with open source analytic data stack, on premises or on the cloud.

Swarm64 DA as a Netezza replacement

Faster than Netezza

The Swarm64 technology is over a decade newer than Netezza, and customers report Swarm64 delivers faster SQL query performance in many cases.

More flexible scaling

Swarm64 scales elastically, by adding or removing single FPGA-equipped servers to a cluster. This is more economical than Netezza, which “scaled” by the rack.

Deploy anywhere

Swarm64 can run on FPGA-equipped commodity hardware installed anywhere, on-premises or in the cloud. Netezza is an on-premises solution only.
