Applications in retail, telecom, financial services and government establish a new market for Netezza users
MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Sept. 3 -- Netezza Corp. today announced five advanced analytic applications developed by Netezza Developer Network (NDN) members. These applications operate in the core of the Netezza appliance where data is stored, exploiting Netezza's massively parallel processing architecture for blisteringly fast performance of complex analytics. Analytic processing previously beyond the capabilities of conventional data warehouses becomes routine with Netezza.
The newly released applications are:
These applications perform complex analytics orders of magnitude faster than currently economically feasible. For example, with one of these applications, telecommunications companies can instantly re-rate price plans by assessing different price scenarios based on tens of millions of call detail records (CDRs).
"Netezza provides us a unique platform to bring truly differentiated applications to market. Through our NDN membership, we have been able to simplify our application development process and build complex applications faster," said Arun Gollapudi, CEO of Systech Solutions. "We see tremendous opportunity to leverage Netezza's architecture and high performance to provide our customers with the ability to solve problems that they just could not before."
The first of many in development, these applications underscore the value of the NDN: Netezza users have a rich and growing choice of applications; NDN partners have a revenue stream from their productized expertise; and Netezza brings better solutions to market.
"By providing plug-and-play solutions for complex analytic scenarios, these applications offer a rich set of options for customers," said Jim Baum, president and COO of Netezza. "Enabling this after-market of solutions will increase our momentum as we enter the mainstream."

In quieter times, sounding the bell of funding big science with big systems tends to resonate further than when ears are already burning with sour economic and national security news. For exascale's future, however, the time could be ripe to instill some sense of urgency....
In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
