Teradata’s newest database crosses Big Data chasm with sophisticated technology

TeradataA seismic shift is moving the industry from a single data warehouse to a logical data warehouse with multiple systems, analytical techniques, programming languages, and diverse data types, says Teradata in a press release it issued on April 7.

Teradata, the analytic data platforms, marketing applications and services company, introduced the advanced Teradata Database 15, which delivers on the promise of a logical data warehouse.

“Teradata is delivering on its vision of an agile and liquid experience for all users with Teradata Database 15,” said Scott Gnau, president of Teradata Labs. “Users can now orchestrate analytic queries across multiple systems, integrate and consume JSON data, write and run non-SQL languages in-database, and leverage new analytics. Teradata Database 15 delivers on the Unified Data Architecture promise of enabling users to look across all data to get new, powerful insights. Teradata bulletproof technology makes it possible.”

Teradata Database 15 offers new capabilities to empower analytics. A new software product, Teradata QueryGrid, provides virtual compute capability within and beyond the Teradata Unified Data Architecture, enabling companies to access and process analytic queries across multiple systems.

JSON integration allows businesses to acquire and use data immediately to support analytics and innovation. Embedding and running user-written SQL and non-SQL languages in parallel within the database provides enhanced architectural flexibility needed by application developers. The Teradata Database offers enhancements to temporal capabilities and adds three-dimensional (3-D) representation and processing of geospatial data, along with enhanced workload management and system availability.
