I’m a platform architect who has spent the last 2 years building an enterprise data warehouse on a Netezza 10400 at a digital media company. We have large data volumes and very complex data. My job is to make the platform do things that push the envelope on performance and data translation. During these 2 years I’ve figured out technical solutions that are at best poorly documented. I’ve had numerous lunches with other Netezza customers to help them with their challenges. Often I’ve been told “You should really start a blog”. So here I am.
Just an addition, it’s now been over 3 years and we are on a IBM Netezza Twinfin 24 . We also have a Cruiser 8 as a DR and archive server. I refuse to use the new IBM names.
