No Need to Worry - Choose Curvature IBM Netezza


Where do you source parts, and do you have enough stock to support us?

Curvature currently has over 100 brick-and-mortar service centers around the globe. Within these offices, our field engineers have the ability to bring known good, tested, parts out to site. FEs typically have access to live running systems which they can utilize to ensure that the highest quality spares are brought onsite for incident remediation. All high-failure and non-redundant spare parts are kept in the local offices. Low-failure/redundant parts are kept in the regional offices. The majority of all spare parts come directly from the IBM Parts Order Center. In most cases, spare parts are new, serviceable used, or refurbished/re-certified. Curvature mimics IBM’s parts handling and usage practices intended for hardware repair.

Netezza is a complicated appliance. Do you have the expertise to service and support us?

Our senior architects average 10+ years of Netezza experience. We bring experienced field service, DBA and Level 3 Netezza skill to each of our customers.

Do you offer software support?

Beyond June, IBM is not offering software support to the market for twinfin and V1 Striper.
