Netezza on Monday outlined an appliance designed to monitor data and predict emerging risks.
The appliance, dubbed Mantra Vault, analyzes transactional data across multiple databases. The general idea is that this monitoring will provide real-time risks to transactions flowing through a data center. Netezza’s umbrella term for this analysis is predictive risk analytics.
