IBM on Wednesday will roll out its first new Netezza appliance since acquiring the data warehousing player in 2010.
The IBM Netezza High Capacity Appliance is designed to allow companies to analyse up to 10 petabytes in a few minutes. With the new appliance, IBM is looking to make analysis of so-called big data sets more affordable, said Steve Mills, senior vice president and group executive of software and systems at IBM.
Mills noted that the latest Netezza appliance is optimised for IBM's BladeCenter technology and is part of a broader portfolio focused on big data projects. IBM also has its BigInsights software, based on Hadoop, and its Streams application. The software is designed to analyse unstructured data on the fly.
