Comment by “Simon Greener” on Netezza Performance Server vs Oracle Database Machine (Podcast)

Lewis,

Are we comparing apples with apples?

The Oracle database machine seems to me to be a generic machine trying to improve performance for normal, everyday usage of Oracle Database.

Oracle database includes some ROLAP functionality but is not, strictly speaking, a dedicated data warehouse database (cf HOLAP and MOLAP).

Because of this I would not expect the Oracle offering to perform better than the Netezza one. What would Phil Francisco say to this?
