High-Speed, Low Latency Networking for Analytics Platform
Netezza, an IBM Company (link resides outside of ibm.com), uses the IBM 10 Gigabit Ethernet RackSwitch G8124 and 1/10 Gigabit Ethernet embedded blade switches as network building blocks for the Netezza TwinFin® system architecture. This "best-of-breed," standards-based solution for data warehousing and analytics for the enterprise, offers advantages that include:
The administrator-friendly BLADEHarmony management interface common to the IBM RackSwitch and blade server network environments provides operational efficiencies and enhances reliability.
Through the high-speed data fabric delivered by the 10 Gigabit Ethernet IBM RackSwitch G8124 coupled with the IBM 1/10G Uplink Ethernet Switch Module for IBM BladeCenter, the Netezza TwinFin appliance delivers orders of magnitude faster performance, fast load speeds of up to 2 terabtyes/hour and fast backup and restore rates of as high as 4 terabtyes/hour. Netezza’s hallmark performance is achieved through its patented software streaming architecture and a set of database accelerator cards that are seamlessly integrated with industry-standard blade servers combined with IBM System Networking's high-speed, low-latency networking and common BLADEHarmony management framework.
