Netezza systems, like humans, will experience a decline in performance as they age. Also like humans, this decline can be linked to underlying health issues which, if corrected, can result in much of the performance being restored. In this blog, read about the steps you can take to ensure your legacy Netezza system runs at peak performance well beyond the IBM end of support date.

You don't have to invest in a secondary Netezza system that will remain idle to achieve a full disaster recovery solution - this can be achieved using Smart Database Replication multi-master bi-directional replication (BDR) which enables you to have a mean time to recovery (MTTR) and recovery point objective (RPO) measured in minutes whilst load balancing your users and maximising your ROI.
