Netezza Acquired by IBM

Netezza, the data warehousing appliance maker, has been acquired by IBM for approximately $1.7 billion. While I haven’t covered Netezza before, this acquisition is interesting from the perspective of the BigData market.

Update: Daniel Abadi wrote ☞ here about a possible Netezza acquisition by IBM over an year ago.

MySpace and Big Data

As you can imagine MySpace has to deal with huge amounts of data too, but they are doing it differently:

In its search for new data warehousing technology, the company evaluated technology from vendors including Teradata and Netezza. However, says Watters, “we didn’t think any of it could scale according to our needs.”

Instead it turned to Aster Data, whose “massively parallel” database technology is based on Google’s MapReduce distributed analytics engine[1]


  1. According to ☞ this: “Aster’s patent-pending analytics framework called SQL-MapReduce is unique to the Aster Data platform.”  ()
