Netezza Migration Toolkit
Move to the Cloud Fast and Reliably
The time to upgrade from Netezza is now
For years, companies have relied on legacy data systems, such as Netezza, for being the backbone of their application and data infrastructure. And for years, Netezza has fit the bill without issue.
However, enterprise needs have changed. Companies are in need for more scalable, agile, and cost-effective solutions for data storage and processing, which in turn, has resulted in many companies seeking migration paths to modern platforms, including Hadoop, Cloud, and other open-source solutions.
However, migrating from Netezza is a major hurdle for enterprise transformation initiatives. Tightly coupled applications, data, and reporting make it challenging to simply lift-and-shift to those modern platforms. Preserving business continuity, ensuring zero downtime, and migrating in a cost-effective manner is the goal, but it isn’t easy.
Our Netezza Migration Toolkit helps to accelerate the migration path, by automating and simplifying a number of the steps in migration. Not only does our solution make migration faster, but it also enforces a number of governances and operational controls to ensure the new data environment employs best-in-class standards for more effective data storage, discovery and consumption.
Cornerstone is our metadata-driven ingestion engine, which connects to your Netezza environment to ingest the data into the new data environment, using metadata to automate the process. In other words – NO ETL. Read more about how Cornerstone works here.
Once your data is loaded, we then deploy SHIFT to translate and migrate all of the legacy Netezza schema, SQL, and application logic to the modern language best suited for your new data environment.
We then leverage our Migration Playbook to optimize, performance-tune and test the migration was successful, and legacy SLAs are matched or exceeded.
