How Do We Migrate Netezza to the Cloud?

When IBM discontinued support for a variety of Netezza versions in June of 2019, the once premium data appliance lost much of its appeal to enterprise customers. Now, many Netezza users are looking to migrate their data warehouses to new cloud targets to boost their analytical efficiency, productivity and business growth.

Use Automation to Accelerate Your Netezza Migration to the Cloud

We’ve helped Netezza customers accelerate their migrations by 60%.

Netezza Migration Planning

1. Scan Your Entire Netezza Data Warehouse

Understand the lineage, applications and data flow of your legacy Netezza data warehouse from end-to-end.

Legacy Code Translation

2. Translate Netezza to Your Cloud Target

Natively translate your Netezza data warehouse code to your cloud target, using our automation tools.

Managing Workloads in the Cloud

3. Test & Validate Your Translated Code

Use automated data validation testing to ensure your translated code is fully performant in the cloud.

Automating Planning & Assessment Activities

1. Automating Planning & Assessment Activities

    • Scan Netezza Data Warehouse: Crawler360™ can identify the workloads within the Netezza environment that are migration candidates, including the lineage and data dependencies, in order to define the most appropriate migration path. Crawler360™ will also provide a lineage view for the data pipelines feeding Netezza, to develop the migration plan for repointing those pipelines to the cloud target.
    • Identify Edge Cases: SHIFT™ Analyzer will scan the Netezza applications to identify the complete code inventory, complexity of objects, and "x-factors" that will require custom solutions when moving to the cloud.
Automating Code Translation

2. Automating Code Translation

    • Translate Netezza Code to Your Cloud Target: Translate all Netezza SQL and Stored Procedures to the target cloud syntax, with accuracy of at least 95% out of the box. Further, our Professional Services team leverages a vast knowledge base of solutions to help address common Netezza to cloud implementation scenarios.
Managing and Accelerating Cut-Over

3. Managing and Accelerating Cut-Over

  • Perform Data Validation Testing: SHIFT™ Tester will automate key aspects of code and data validation testing when completing the migration project, in order to accelerate end-to-end testing efforts. This ensures all translated code compiles and executes with the expected results in the cloud target.
  • Identify Application Dependencies: Crawler360™ will identify dependencies and "consumption lineage" to downstream applications (like analytics and reporting tools) in order to define the appropriate migration approach while identifying optimization and consolidation opportunities along the way.
