Abstrakt [PDF]:
Netezza is a highly specialized database management system for data warehousing operations. In this presentation, Dr. Knut Stolze gives an overview of the its system architecture and the internal query processing. It is shown how very good performance can be delivered with a very simple user interface that avoids indexes. Next, the IBM DB2 Analytics Accelerator is an integration project and commercial product that combines the strengths of Netezza's analytic query processing capabilities with DB2's superior OLTP performance. Knut highlights how the integration of both products is achieved in a (nearly) seamless way.
