Announcing IBM PureData for Analytics / Netezza for Cloud

Biplane in clouds

Netezza on cloudIronside is excited to announce a ground breaking new solution for organizations wanting to leverage their analytics workload-optimized PureData for Analytics / Netezza appliance in conjunction with rest of their virtualized private cloud analytics architecture. Ironside’s IBM PureData for Analytics (PDA) for Cloud offering solves all of the major hurdles for connecting your physical big data appliance with your virtual cloud infrastructure: management and communications bandwidth and latency. Ironside is now uniquely able to provide hosting and management of your appliance in conjunction with direct, private, and secure network connectivity back to IBM SoftLayer or other major cloud providers. This means you can host your entire analytics architecture in the cloud and still take advantage of the massive benefits that a physical appliance provides in this application.

What do I get?

Realize your enterprise cloud analytics vision with all the familiar benefits of IBM PureData for Analytics, such as big data workload optimization, high performance query, high availability, extremely low cost of ownership, and hands-off administration. Other features of the service include:

  • Enterprise Class Hosting and Management for IBM PDA/Netezza
  • 99.999+% Uptime and Reliability – Exceeding “Tier 4” Standards
  • Highly Secure and Controlled – SSAE16 SOC-1 Type II Certified
  • Flexible and Fast Cloud and Hybrid Cloud Connectivity
  • Variety of Options for Backups and Disaster Recovery

How does it work?

Many hybrid cloud deployments and integrations for engineered big data systems like PDA/Netezza need to be closely located to the rest of your analytics architecture. If you are doing data integration, data movement, reporting and deep analytics there will often be situations you need to have a low latency connection between those down stream applications and your PDA for performance reasons. If your PDA is located on-premise and the rest of your analytics infrastructure is located in the cloud, you may be experiencing communication and congestion issues like those below. Or perhaps you just don’t want to manage a separate vendor relationship, or have a data center team just to support your appliance when your strategy is otherwise 100% private cloud, because, your business is what your organization does for its customers, not managing data centers.
