Netezza unveils TwinFin i-Class appliance

Offers plug-ins to Eclipse integrated development environment and R graphical user interface

By CBR Staff Writer

Netezza, a provider of data warehouse and analytic appliances, has unveiled TwinFin(i) appliance, a development and execution platform that allows analytical applications to be run inside the appliance and close to the data.

Based on the company’s data streaming technology, the Netezza TwinFin i-Class

appliance executes complex analytics in parallel within the database on large data sets, reducing costs and eliminating errors and delays in moving the data into specialised databases for advanced analytics, the company claims.

According to Netezza, the parallel processing architecture of the new appliance powers and simplifies the computational complexity of big data when building and applying advanced analytics in parallel. It also enables customers and partners to create analytic applications using tools such as SAS, traditional programming languages (Java, C++, Python, Fortran), new programming environments (MapReduce, Hadoop) and open source tools such as R.

In addition, the new appliance also provides plug-ins to the Eclipse integrated development environment and the R graphical user interface for development support using Netezza’s simple appliance paradigm.

Jim Baum, president and CEO of Netezza, said: “Based on unique technology that combines big data with big math, the TwinFin(i) platform speaks the language of advanced analytics – allowing more people to more deeply analyse more data. Our innovation, together with our partnership with SAS, opens the door for mainstream market adoption of advanced analytics.”

Partners developing advanced applications for the TwinFin platform include SAS, Tibco Spotfire, MicroStrategy, Pursway, DemandTec and QuantiSense.
