From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Netezza is a computer hardware/software company, whose primary product is an MPP data warehouse appliance. Netezza is widely credited for either inventing or bringing renewed attention to the data warehouse appliance category, depending upon whether one regards long-time data warehouse technology vendor Teradata as having been in the data warehouse appliance category all along. [1] The greatest distinguishing feature of Netezza technology is its reliance on FPGAs and PowerPC processors rather than standard disk controller chips and Intel CPUs.[2]

As of September 2008, the primary vertical markets into which Netezza sells are retailing, telecommunications, financial services, health care, and what the company refers to as "e-business." [3] As of July, 2008, most of Netezza's business was in the United States, and much of the rest in the United Kingdom, but the company was making sales in a growing number of additional countries.[4] Also as of July, 2008, Netezza stated it had 191 total customers for its primary product line (data warehouse appliances).[5]

In July 2007, Netezza Corporation became public via an IPO under the ticker “NZ” on NYSE:Arca. [6][7]
