The Netezza Performance Server (NPS™) 8000 Series is the first enterprise-class data appliance that delivers 10 to 50 times the performance for large, complex and constantly evolving BI efforts at half the cost of existing systems. The NPS system manages fast data loads and optimizes ad hoc and complex BI queries for maximum performance, transforming the way companies can use their data. Through its Asymmetric Massively Parallel Processing™ (AMPP™) architecture, the system combines the processing power of SMP with the scalability of MPP to deliver breakthrough price/performance. Netezza’s Intelligent Query Streaming™ design implements query functions in silicon and enables intelligent data streaming at the disk level, shattering traditional performance benchmarks by removing many of the technical roadblocks that paralyze today’s patchwork of general-purpose offerings. Built for quick deployment, simple administration and nearly infinite scaling, the NPS 8000 Series is fully compatible with companies’ existing BI infrastructures, applications, legacy systems and data. The total cost of ownership (TCO) is a fraction of the cost of solutions currently on the market, making the NPS system an affordable solution for tera-scale BI.
