Netezza Performance Server® (NPS®) System Delivers Significant Performance Increase

Bracknell, Berkshire. – April 18, 2006 –

Netezza, the global data warehouse appliance leader, today announced that LoanPerformance, a subsidiary of First American Real Estate Solutions (RES®) and a leader in residential mortgage data and analytics, has chosen the Netezza Performance Server data warehouse appliance to run its TrueStandings Servicing product line.

LoanPerformance’s data and suite of predictive prepayment and risk modeling solutions enable mortgage originators, servicers, securities issuers and investors to make informed business decisions about credit risk, loss mitigation, customer retention, securitization and investment.

The company has deployed the NPS system to dramatically improve performance and overall service level agreements while providing greater user access to data.

“Because we’ve created and maintain the industry’s largest and most robust mortgage servicing database, the speed and comprehensiveness of our data analysis is critical to our institutional customers,” said Dan Feshbach, CEO of LoanPerformance. “Deploying the NPS system allows us to run analyses against terabytes of data at a rapid rate, which translates to better and faster service to our customers.”

“It was the Netezza system’s sophistication that appealed to LoanPerformance,” noted Jit Saxena, CEO and co-founder, Netezza Corp. “The ease of integration and scalability of our system will allow LoanPerformance to keep pace with growing data volumes and increasing customer demand.”

The NPS system is the market-leading data warehouse appliance, built specifically to analyze terabytes of detailed data 10 to 100 times faster than existing data warehouse options, at half the cost.

The NPS system stores, filters and processes terabytes of records within a single unit, analyzing only the relevant information for each query. Netezza has placed the CPU power next to the data, allowing the NPS system to speed through processes that would occupy most data warehouse systems for hours, or even days, thereby enabling dramatic increases in productivity across the organization.

Customers who have recognized the performance benefits of Netezza’s approach include Ahold USA, Amazon.com, American Red Cross, Catalina Marketing, Cingular Wireless, CNET Networks, Epsilon, Neiman Marcus, Orange UK, Premier, Inc., Shoppers Drug Mart Corporation, The Carphone Warehouse and The TJX Companies.
