Streaming Analytics With the Netezza Performance Server Appliance: Bringing Appliance Simplicity to Advanced Analytics
As the pioneer in appliances for analytic processing, Netezza recognized years ago that operating at streaming speeds can be game-changing for data-intensive companies. The architecture of its Netezza Performance Server (NPS) system is based on this principle, improving performance by orders of magnitude. Netezza customers around the world and across many industries are reaping the benefits - wherever critical information is needed urgently. Initially developed for SQL queries, the NPS system is now enabled for high-performance analytics, allowing algorithms to run 10-100 times faster than traditional approaches. This paper examines how the Netezza family of appliances is uniquely suited for running complex analytic applications on massive data sets.
