Teradata Partners 2008

Teradata recently announced several new features at the annual Teradata Partners 'love-in' event in Las Vegas.

The 'up to 30% performance improvements and 75 enhancements' constitute the latest Teradata release - Teradata v13.

The key new features are as follows:

  • Teradata virtual storage

  • ELT enhancements (not ETL - transforms are done in parallel inside the MPP database, remember?)

  • geospatial capabilities

As ever, the devil is in the detail...

more will follow when I've dug deeper.
