We briefly looked at Netezza awhile back. The price is in the $1 million
range. I think it would have been a good fit but for whatever reason we could
not get permission to do a trial.

For what it's worth, I think Neteeza has a better architecture for maximum raw
performance for data warehouse queries. The customized hardware is built for
that while Oracle's architecture is mostly a reconfiguration of existing
Oracle features such as RAC along with new hardware.

On the other hand, Netezza doesn't have the Oracle standard features such as
PL/SQL, some of the indexing capabilities, etc.
