Netezza Vs Teradata comparsion

Published in: Technology, Business
  • Much of this is outdated. Sears has kicked Netezza out and migrated back to Teradata as has SafeWay. I heard that one of them actually had a party where they dismantled the Netezza system violently it had failed so horribly. Also new Teradata systems use infiniband. I could go on but Netezza has been having a hard time of it of late. They just aren't as competitive.

Netezza vs teradata

  1. 1. Netezza Vs Teradata
  2. 2. Topics  Key Design Principles  Key Technology Requirements  Key Physical Architecture Principles  Parameter for Comparison  Evaluation Consideration  Conclusion 2
  3. 3. Key Design Principles Criteria Parallelism across the database platform Dedicated Physical Architecture Proprietary intelligent NA system inter-connect Equal Distribution of Data across the Data Storage *** Netezza FPGA reduces the network cost and boosts performance *** Now both Teradata & Netezza supports Map-Reduce to re-distribute the data 3
  4. 4. Key Technology Requirements Criteria Data Volume Parallel Query Simplification of Physical Schema Parallel Data Load Incremental Additions Abstract Complexity in Query Execution and Query Data Volume *** Netezza dose not have any Primary key concept which simplifies the Physical Schema *** Both Netezza & TD provides inbuilt utilities for Parallel, Incremental load 4
  5. 5. Key Physical Architecture Principles Criteria Each block within the Server has Dedicated Hardware and Process Common Process Controler with high speed interconnectivity across the blocks Distribution of Data across the Data blocks controlled by Common Processes Scalable for Cloud BI In-memory Analytics 5

  8. 8. Netezza Vs Oracle Vs IBM *** From Netezza site, and in reality I have experienced the same performance 8
  9. 9. Comparison Netezza adopted a 2 Tier Architecture within Hardware rather a Node based architecture with allhigh level functions handled using SMP and Low level functions are handled using the SPUs. TheSMP host connects to hundred of MPP drives called Snippet Processing Units (SPUs) Netezza Database is designed to spread in a vertically integrated hardware matrix along withhorizontally integrated components. The Scalability is addressed by Netezza’s Asymmetric Massively Parallel Architecture (AMPP).The AMPP uses modular component at two architectural levels. At the higher level the componentsare rack mounted standard SMP units and at the lower level series of intelligent controllers andredundant components that makes a small package easily manageable and extensible compared toTeradata. The High degree of reliability is achieved in Netezza by full redundancy at every level of the 2tiered AMPP Architecture. In Teradata the parsing engine decomposes the query passed and then executes in parallel on allSMP Nodes. The parsing engine in a peer relationship to the execution engines all on the same SMParchitecture. In Netezza, the Intelligent Query Streaming Technology leverages the 2 dimension architecture.The physical database level processing are moved at the hardware level . This allows processingdecomposition into many more processors than any other product. This increases the magnitude ofperformance compared to Teradata or any other product. 9
  10. 10. Comparison (Conn….)  Netezza uses the Ethernet Switch Technology Compared to Teradata’s bynet Technology. The bynet is based on TCP/IP, Rather the Gigabyte Ethernet is based on Switch technology . This technology can share vast amount of data across many processors. This leads to optimization of resources across the units and supports high degree data transfers. This addresses the high degree of bandwidth requirement of Netezza compared to Teradata.  Netezza implemented a new disk controller architecture in the Performance Server. This disk controller device partners with the SMP platform to disperse the disk controller functions that are processed normally only by host alone. This is a key breakthrough of Netezza compared to other databases  Netezza does not have much database administration tasks such as Index, Spacing and Other Objects. This reduces the Operational Admin tasks and eases the maintenance of the same. Teradata related Adapters from ETL ,EAI ,Messaging and Business Automation Tools are tested across multiple business/Technical scenarios compared to Netezza.  Scenario (Existing Organization has 100 TB and in next 5 Years it will reach 500 TB)  If you are buying 100 TB Box, upfront you have to pay for the 100 TB Box in Teradata  If you are buying 100 TB Box, you just have to pay per usage (Only for 100 TB) in Netezza  Netezza automatically re-distribute the data by looking the access Path for better query performance. 10
  11. 11. Evaluation Consideration  Scalable : Make sure proposed solution scales in a near-linear fashion and behaves consistently with growth in database size, number of concurrent users and complexity of queries. Understand additional hardware and software required for each of the incremental uses.  Powerful : Designed for complex decision support activity in a multi-user mixed workload environment.  Manageable: Minimal support tasks requiring DBA/System Administrator intervention. It should provide a single point of control to simplify system administration. We should be able to create and implement new tables and indexes at will.  Extensible: Provides flexible database design and system architecture that keeps pace with evolving business requirements and leverages existing investment in hardware and applications.  Available: Supports mission critical business applications with minimal down time. These can include batch load times, software/hardware upgrades, severe system performance issues and system maintenance outages.  Interoperable: Integrated access to the web, internal networks, and corporate mainframes.  Affordable : Proposed solution (hardware, software, services, required customer support) providing a low total cost of ownership (TCO) over multi-year period.  Proven: Platform must be proven.  Flexible: Provides optimal performance across the full range of normalized, star and hybrid data schemas with large numbers of tables. Proven ability to support multiple applications from different business units, leveraging data that is integrated across business functions and subject areas  Cost: Over all the onetime installation cost, maintenance/Support cost 11
  12. 12. Conclusion Netezza Scores well from the subjective Architectural Analysis standpoint. Netezza addresses the VLDB (Very Large Data Base) needs of organization with New Generation Technologies rather trying to address the bottleneck in the existing technology in an cost effective manner. 12
