A new motto could be “An appliance for every vertical”. IBM Netezza’s first is for retailers.

Most of the time vendor videos are emphasizing the superiority of their own commercial platform. But this short video gives a fair overview of the similarities and differences between Hadoop and Netezza.
The video is 5 minutes long and well worth watching.
- The ability to orchestrate execution of Hadoop related tasks (i.e., executing a Hive Query, Pig Script, or M/R job) as part of a broader IT workflow.
- The ability to setup dependencies, so if a step fails the job can branch down a recovery path or send a notification, or if it’s a success it goes on to subsequent dependent tasks. Likewise it supports initiating several tasks in parallel.
- New integration for Pig — so that developers have the ability to execute a Pig job from a PDI Job flow, integrate the execution of Pig jobs in broader IT workflows through PDI Jobs, take advantage of our out of the box scheduler, and so on.
The list of tools Pentaho 4 integrates with is quite long:
- a long list of traditional RDBMS
- analytics databases (Greenplum, Vertica, Netezza, Teradata, etc.)
- NoSQL databases (MongoDB, HBase, etc.)
- Hadoop variants
- LexisNexis HPCC
This is the world of polyglot persistence and hybrid data storage.

In the blue corner we have IBM with Netezza as analytic database, Cognos for BI, and SPSS for predictive analytics. In the green corner we have EMC with Greenplum and the partnership with SAS. And in the open source corner we have Hadoop and R.
Update: there’s also another corner I don’t know how to color where Teradata and its recently acquired Aster Data partner with SAS.
Who is ready to bet on which of these platforms will be processing more data in the next years?
