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?
Engage Northdoor today to provide expert extended support for your end-of-life Netezza appliances, and benefit from:
Northdoor has successfully completed dozens of major Netezza implementation and migration projects for major UK companies including ABC Group, Ace Insurance, Compass Group, GSK and Monetize – giving us deep technical expertise in the platform. Additionally, now that IBM is opening up Netezza support to third parties, Northdoor’s decades of experience in front-end support for critical systems makes us the right choice for Netezza extended support services. Backed by our status as an IBM Platinum Business Partner, Northdoor can help you:
Netezza Skimmer, Twinfin, and Striper models are already beyond EOS, and the clock is ticking for the Mako models. Northdoor has extensive experience across all generations of Netezza hardware.

As one of the UK’s leading IBM Platinum Business Partners, Northdoor has the skills and experience to provide comprehensive support for all generations of Netezza/PureData appliances.
What’s more, our technical support services are always attuned to the needs of the business, and we have three decades of experience in helping organisations maximise the value of their data assets.
Whether you need software-only support, or full software/on-site hardware cover for your end-of-life Netezza appliances, Northdoor can help. 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.
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:
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.
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.
