Packs Teradata 13 with 93 new features
Teradata has released a new database for enterprise intelligence, Teradata 13, which includes the company’s Database 13, Tools and Utilities 13, services and partnerships.
The company claims that its new offering provides an overall improvement up to 30% for query processing, with some workloads running up to 20 times faster than on the previous database version.
The company said that the Teradata 13 query optimizer has been improved to allow queries run faster and consume fewer resources. The query optimizer interprets a query and determines a way for the database to process it providing business users with a response to their queries. The company claimed that database administrators and application developers are not required to be involved, because these enhancements deploy automatically.
According to the company, Teradata 13, with its workload management capabilities, enables data to stream up to two times faster into the data warehouse. Variables can be analysed directly in the database. Also, the high-speed data loading and analysis do not interrupt or slow each other.
Scott Gnau, head of development at Teradata, said: “We packed Teradata 13 with 93 new innovative features achieving an overall performance improvement up to 30 percent. Teradata 13 software performance has more than doubled based on improvements in the last three years.
If we consider the combination of software and hardware platform performance, Teradata 13 performance is seven times faster over that same time period. This performance and capability pays big, tangible dividends for our customers by helping them to out-manoeuvre their competitors.”
