Enterprises Gain Wider View of Data via Scalable Virtual Data Warehouse Approach

BOSTON, MA — ENZEE UNIVERSE - Netezza Corporation (NYSE: NZ), the global leader in data warehouse, analytic and monitoring appliances, and Composite Software, Inc., the data virtualization performance leader, today announced the Netezza® Data Virtualizer™ to simplify, accelerate and optimize the integration of data stored across multiple Netezza appliances.

Powered by Composite Software, the Netezza Data Virtualizer creates an integrated view of data that is physically distributed across multiple Netezza appliances and delivers query results to reporting and analytic applications while Netezza appliances continue to manage their data.

“As the enterprise-wide scale of their data analytics’ needs continue to grow, Netezza’s customers have exacting performance expectations for their BI applications,” said Phil Francisco, vice president, product management and product marketing for Netezza. “Composite’s deep knowledge of data virtualization and the collaboration between our companies’ engineers mean this product will provide high performance for our customers’ BI applications regardless of the data’s physical location within a grid of Netezza appliances.”

“Netezza has a vision for the future of data warehousing and analytics – called NSight – and this release is a significant step on the path to the fulfillment of that vision” said Philip Howard, Research Director, Bloor Research and author of the Bloor Research InDetail paper on the Netezza Data Virtualizer. “Furthermore, it showcases the power and flexibility of Composite’s market leading data virtualization platform. This is a valuable combination that is unique in the market.”

“As enterprises expand their Netezza deployments, it is only natural that they want to gain an even higher return by integrating these important analytic environments,” said David Besemer, Composite Software CTO. “Together we have engineered a complete and cost-effective solution that meets these needs while delivering the agility, performance and reliability levels these enterprises require.”

The Netezza Data Virtualizer will be licensed and supported by Netezza. The product is planned to be generally available early in the second half of calendar year 2010.

In addition, Netezza customers have the option of licensing a full-use version of Composite Information Server™ software directly from Composite Software. The full-use license would allow data access beyond Netezza appliances to other relational databases, to Web services and XML documents, and enterprise applications from Oracle,, and SAP, including SAP BW and Oracle Essbase.
