July 9, 2008 - Midwest Independent Transmission System Operator, Inc. (Midwest ISO), selected Netezza Corporation to run power grid reliability, energy market performance analytics and usage statistics. 


Midwest ISO selected Netezza to assist with the facilitation of enhanced customer understanding, market transparency and more streamlined operations in the recently deregulated and competitive electric utility industry. 


With data volumes growing at a rate of 400 GB per month, performance on the existing data warehouse was suffering and data center space was shrinking dramatically. As the data management group at the Midwest ISO embarked on a strategic project to provide a platform that would support near real-time electrical grid and market analytics to both internal and external customers, the performance of the current data warehouse solution became an obstacle. 


Netezza, a member of The Green Grid consortium, will reduce Midwest ISO’s data center footprint and energy requirements, eliminating the need to move or expand the current data warehouse and providing a performance improvement over the existing solution, according to Netezza.
