Data warehouse appliances are used to sift through large volumes of data as quickly as possible in order to produce meaningful business intelligence reports. The Sybase Analytic Appliance is claimed to be able to do this faster and cheaper than its rivals.

According to IBM and Sybase, the partnership has produced an out-of-the-box solution that can be installed in days, can conduct column-based queries up to 100 times faster than standard row-based queries and markedly undercuts rivals such as HP, Teradata, Netezza and Oracle.
