Teradata launches analytics database, Everywhere

Analytics solutions company, Teradata, announced the launch of ‘Teradata Everywhere’, that brings Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) analytic database to multiple public clouds, managed cloud, and on-premises environments including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Teradata Managed Cloud, VMware virtualization software, and the Teradata IntelliFlex platform. The company claims that this solution delivers the flexibility to implement a hybrid architecture with a common database that enables shifting of workloads between environments as business needs evolve, supporting a company’s changing deployment strategy and economic needs. The company also states that Teradata Database is the first MPP analytic database customizable across multiple public clouds, managed cloud, VMware virtualization, and purpose-built appliances. To deliver optimal performance and flexibility across these deployment options, Teradata is enhancing core features of the Teradata Database. The newest MAPS architecture will provide elasticity to seamlessly expand or shrink a Teradata data warehouse to scale alongside changing business needs. MAPS will also provide higher concurrency and more consistent performance of tactical queries. Additionally, the Teradata Database’s Adaptive Optimizer will automatically adjust to its host environment to provide the most efficient query plans, fastest query execution, and the most efficient system utilization. Teradata Database Oliver Ratzesberger, Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer, Teradata said, “It’s all about customer choice without sacrifice. Companies need their data and analytic environment to be agile, multi-faceted, and flexible.” “Teradata Everywhere means that the exact same Teradata Database can be deployed on-premises and in the cloud. Regardless of the combination, Teradata is leading the industry in delivering this capability. Companies can concentrate their energy on running analytics to improve their business rather than engineering compatibility between their environments.” The company claims that Teradata Everywhere works in tandem with Teradata Borderless Analytics to power business transformation and new business models. Teradata Borderless Analytics gives enterprises the ability to easily manage multi-system analytic environments and shift workloads to optimize resource utilization, while ensuring a seamless and transparent business user experience. It also enables cross-technology analytics, giving users access to heterogeneous analytic processing engines and data stores. For some companies, this will mean expanding from on-premises systems to cloud, while for others it will mean augmenting cloud with on-premises systems. The Teradata “Borderless Analytics” capability is made possible by the latest versions of Teradata QueryGrid software for analytics across heterogeneous, multi-system data stores, and Teradata Unity software for automated and seamless orchestration of a Teradata multi-system environment. The various Teradata Everywhere product enhancements announced by the company will become generally available in the third quarter of 2016 through the second quarter of 2017.
