The Teradata Active Enterprise Data Warehouse can be expanded incrementally from one to more than 4,000 nodes, accommodating user data space from 6 terabytes to 92 petabytes. Teradata’s Database 14 engine powers all applications. It is known for its power, flexibility and scalability, and has built-in “set and go” optimization functionality.
Teradata solutions are supported by three key components: 1) Geospatial reduces the time for query responses and extends geospatial data within the database; 2) Temporal extracts and processes the historical data of the business for further analysis, enabling users to make more informed decisions; 3) Aster MapReduce Appliance, a fully-integrated system that helps gather insights from the massive amounts of data produced by the business.
