Protect your investment and keep critical systems in top condition
When vendor support for technology comes to an end, the smooth, reliable running of your business-critical systems may be at risk. It’s natural to have concerns about ongoing costs, the challenges of building up new skills internally, and the security and reliability of end-of-life hardware.
Following IBM’s announcement of the end-of-support (EOS) for three generations of its Netezza (a.k.a. IBM PureData System for Analytics) appliances, and with no IBM extended support on offer, is your business living on borrowed time?

Our flexible pricing model means that you can select the precise support conditions for each appliance depending on its value to your organisation. And because we integrate directly with your Netezza nzevent alert system, our support engineers can respond rapidly and effectively to any emerging issues.
Comprehensive support for Netezza/PureData appliances
Northdoor has the skills and experience to support, manage, maintain and optimize all models and generations of Netezza and PureData systems that have reached end-of-support. We offer:
- Detailed information on Netezza end-of-support conditions and timings
- Seamless remote Netezza software support
- Full on-site Netezza hardware support
- Tailored support contracts with flexible pricing
- In-depth training of your internal support resources
- Additional consulting on data warehouse and analytics optimisation.
Getting extended support to keep your Netezza systems in optimal condition is as easy as determining the level of cover you need for each system—from normal office hours right up to full 24/7 coverage. Northdoor can rapidly provide a flat-rate pricing quote for each system, reflecting its capacity and criticality (production or non-production).
The Northdoor support ticketing system integrates directly with your Netezza nzevent alerts, ensuring that emerging problems are immediately visible to our expert engineers.
For Netezza hardware support, Northdoor can source the right spare parts for your specific models, and provide training and remote assistance if you wish your own team to remain responsible for physical maintenance. Equally, Northdoor can provide detailed remote or on-site training for your own support resources on all aspects of Netezza/PureData hardware and software management, maintenance and optimisation.
Looking beyond Netezza
Extended support will naturally be a short- to medium-term option for most organisations; ultimately, you will be looking for a replacement for your existing Netezza system(s). With long experience in designing and delivering data warehousing and analytics solutions of all kinds, Northdoor can help your organisation plan for a future without Netezza/PureData. We offer comprehensive consulting services to help you plan the optimal future environment—whether on-prem, in the cloud, or hybrid—backed by expert migration services.
