Teradata announces that a large, diverse ecosystem of alliance partners have tested their solutions for compatibility and will support Teradata Database 15.10.
Commercialized globally, the Teradata Database delivers up to 22 percent better performance overall, with a 56 percent improvement for some individual queries compared to the previous version. The Teradata Database performance enables organizations to respond to business challenges with greater agility.
“The Teradata Database is recognized as the industry’s premier database, and the major innovations establish a new standard for performance,” said Oliver Ratzesberger, president, Teradata Labs. “When our alliance partners’ solutions are combined with the Teradata Database, then our customers have a wider variety of analytics to propel their business initiatives.”
Highlighting this development from an India perspective, Sunil Jose, Managing Director, Teradata India said, “We’re very excited about the capabilities that Teradata Database 15.10 brings to our customers in India. Organizations are under extreme pressure to deliver analyses faster and to more people than ever before. This has fueled requirements for faster and more efficient data warehouse performance to speed up business decisions and new business applications while improving system utilization. Teradata Database 15.10 does all of this and is of special significance for large consumer facing enterprises that require support for a very high quantum of analytical queries simultaneously across multiple segments. Going forward, we see a strong uptake of this offering from the telecom and ecommerce industry in India.”
Key engineering advancements increase the flexibility and improve the performance of Teradata Database 15.10.
In-Memory Optimization – Teradata Database 15.10 includes engineering advancements that deliver analytic performance and system efficiency through memory and CPU optimizations, which enable customers to seamlessly and automatically achieve new levels of analytic performance. More specifically, Teradata Intelligent Memory, has been enhanced to better leverage memory and CPU with a reduced load on memory bandwidth, improved CPU efficiency, reduced I/O traffic to disk, and improved overall system efficiency.
Faster Performance with JSON Data – Teradata claims itself as the first to allow customers to natively store three JSON data formats in a single database providing faster querying performance for JSON data along with other operational and historical business data.
World’s Most Advanced Hybrid Row/Column Database – Teradata’s hybrid row/column capability enhancements provide quicker access to data stored in columnar tables, which drive faster query performance for more agile business decisions. Other relational database management systems store data in rows or columns, and each method offers unique benefits, depending on the application and type of data. However, they have been mutually exclusive. Teradata’s hybrid row and column capabilities allow the best of both worlds. The enhancements in Teradata 15.10 provide even faster and more precise access to the specific data needed for a query, improving performance and query concurrency.
Software-Defined Warehouse – The Software-Defined Warehouse enables organizations to consolidate multiple data warehouses into one system with simpler data warehouse management, consistent performance, security, as well as the cost-savings of maintaining a single system. Many organizations maintain multiple, separate data warehouses to meet unique business unit requirements or to comply with data privacy regulations across countries.
Data Fabric Orchestrates Powerful Ecosystem – Teradata QueryGrid allows companies to overcome the limitations of using many different technologies for operational and analytical systems, which are sourced from different vendors. The data fabric weaves together multiple analytics, diverse data repositories, and disparate systems to provide business users a cohesive and uninterrupted analytic ecosystem. The data fabric puts the focus on getting answers to business questions, and not on the underlying IT process or infrastructure.
