Overview
Bottom rule

IBM PureData System for Analytics N2001 is a high-performance, scalable, massively parallel system that enables you to gain insight on your ever growing volumes of data, simpler and faster. Powered by Netezza® technology, a patented solution for increasing the performance of analytics, this system is designed specifically to run complex analytics on large data volumes, orders-of-magnitude faster than traditional custom systems1.

IBM PureData System for Analytics N2001 delivers performance, scalability, intelligence, and simplicity to help meet the needs of your business. It is a low-cost option that requires minimal ongoing administration or tuning that gives you greater insight into your data.

IBM PureData System for Analytics N2001 offers:

In addition, IBM PureData System for Analytics N2001 delivers:

Based on reported results from IBM customers. "Traditional custom systems" refers to systems that are not professionally prebuilt, pretested, and optimized. Individual results may vary.
2
Based on a comparison of IBM PureData System for Analytics N2001 to IBM PureData System for Analytics N1001. The performance speed refers to the query times on both macro-analytic and mixed workload tests as conducted in IBM engineering lab benchmarks. The N2001 query times were an average of three times faster than those of the PureData System for Analytics N1001. Individual results may vary.

Description
Bottom rule

Minimizing data movement, while processing it at physics speed, in parallel, and at massive scale, provides a huge opportunity for cost savings and efficiency in your data warehouse and analytic environments. An easy-to-use data warehouse appliance can help you achieve order-of-magnitude improvements.

IBM PureData System for Analytics N2001 is designed for rapid and deep analysis of large data volumes. It requires minimal ongoing administration or tuning and offers a low total cost of ownership (TCO).

IBM PureData System for Analytics N2001 delivers performance advantage over other analytic options. This comes from its unique asymmetric massively parallel processing architecture that combines open, IBM blade servers and disk storage with IBM-patented data filtering that uses field programmable gate arrays. This combination delivers fast query performance on analytic workloads that supports tens of thousands of business intelligence (BI) and data warehouse users, sophisticated analytics at the speed of thought.

Highlights

IBM PureData System for Analytics N2001 delivers three times faster performance6 and it does all of this with no increase in floor space, power, or cooling requirements7. With IBM PureData System for Analytics N2001, organizations can deploy the right-sized environments for their data volumes, workloads, and desired performance; and can be confident that, as data volumes grow, larger systems can be deployed quickly and easily. IBM PureData System for Analytics starts with a half-rack system that can store over 96 TB of data5 with the built-in, hardware accelerated, compression. Usable capacity exceeds three quarters of a PB for a four rack system.

IBM PureData System for Analytics provides near, linear performance scalability as the size of the appliance grows. This means that organizations can pick the appropriate sized appliance to meet both their data volume and performance requirements, all with predictable, scalable performance and no need to add significant additional resources to manage the appliance as data volumes grow.

All of these new features are delivered with the same simplicity and ease-of-use that distinguished IBM PureData System products inherent from its base Netezza technology that has had these distinguishing features from the very beginning. This simplicity, and ease of development and deployment is what truly sets IBM PureData System for Analytics N2001 apart. IBM PureData System for Analytics N2001 delivers high performance automatically, with no indexing or tuning required.

As an appliance, all of the integration of hardware, software, and storage is done for you, leading to shorter deployment cycles and industry-leading time to value for BI and analytic initiatives. The appliance is delivered ready-to-go for immediate data loading and query execution, and integrates with leading Extraction, Transformation, and Loading (ETL), BI, and analytic applications through standard ODBC, JDBC, and OLE DB interfaces.

IBM PureData System for Analytics N2001 is architected for high availability from the ground up. All components are internally redundant for a robust, production-ready environment from the moment the appliance is plugged into your data center.

The current IBM Netezza Performance Portal is availableto customers of IBM PureData System for Analytics N2001 and IBM PureData System for Analytics N1001. Netezza Performance Portal is a web user interface (UI) tool that allows administrators to:

Software Subscription and Support (Software Maintenance)

Appliance Maintenance and Subscription and Support Service

Period and renewal

The initial service period for IBM machine components is the warranty period specified in a transaction document for the IBM machine component of the appliance. Warranty Services are not renewable. When the customer obtains Appliance Maintenance and Subscription and Support Service for an appliance, the initial service period for the Appliance Maintenance and Subscription and Support Service will be treated as if it is a renewal of a previous Service Period for i) the IBM machine component of the appliance and ii) the Software Subscription and Support for the program component of an appliance.

Appliance Maintenance and Subscription and Support Service are provided at the same level of service, if available, to which the customer was entitled during the warranty period or that the customer selected for a Warranty Service upgrade. The initial service period for Appliance Maintenance and Subscription and Support Service ends on i) the last day of the corresponding month in the following year, unless the warranty period ends on the last day of the month, in which case the service period ends on the last day of the month, 12 months from the date on which the warranty period ends for the machine component or ii) the customer's anniversary date, if applicable, for a service period of less than 12 full months for a prorated charge, thereby aligning the service period for Appliance Maintenance and Subscription and Support Service with the anniversary.

Consult the IBM Appliance Support Handbook for further details on Appliance Service and upgrade options:

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
