IBM ended support for Netezza models – TwinFin (all N1001 versions) and Stripers (all N2001/2002 versions). They also announced the end-of-support for the Mako line on April 10th, 2023. In typical OEM fashion, IBM suggests moving to their latest and greatest cloud offering without taking into consideration the large capital expense invested in these systems. If your company is not ready to make the switch, please reach out and let’s discuss your options on extending the life of your current infrastructure.
A Different Solution to IBM Netezza Support: Third-Party Maintenance
IBM released a recent statistic saying that on average, 70% of a company's IT budget is spent on IT maintenance.
Many organizations currently pay for OEM maintenance based on brand equity alone, but there’s no cause to scramble to plan a technology refresh just because the OEM has declared EOS.
Gartner identifies CentricsIT as a top TPM solution provider for cost optimization, and the typical customer saves 40-70% on support costs.
CentricsIT is uniquely positioned as one of the only multi-vendor IT hardware and support suppliers with global reach. Our global TPM services support everything from EOS equipment like Netezza’s Skimmer, TwinFin, and Striper to the latest and greatest models just released by OEMs.

“It’s always nice to get more than what you want AND save money!

With CentricsIT, I usually get a quote back within 30 minutes or at the very least, by end of business day. That’s a great way to do business.”

Our Netezza Support and Maintenance Philosophy Advantage
We believe that it doesn’t make sense to pay more money to maintain older data center hardware. When manufacturers increase your maintenance costs because your equipment is older, they’re just trying to intimidate you into purchasing newer hardware that you might not even need. Parts are cheaper and easier to source for older hardware, and the pool of trained technicians that have been around for years is larger. That is why our data center hardware maintenance service options make more sense for your business.
CentricsIT is able to support your IBM Netezza equipment under customizable service levels completely designed for your requirements. There are no penalties for adding or deleting equipment on your contract, so you can adjust your support levels penalty-free anytime.
If you need an engineer onsite to fulfill your technical support request—no problem. We have a wide network of engineers all over the world. They are experienced with all the leading manufacturers product lines.
Our approach to support enables us to maintain all of your hardware across manufacturers through one call and one contract.
