Database enhancements aim to help business comply with data privacy regulations.
Teradata enhanced to its database with the Software-Defined Warehouse and the expansion of its QueryGrid.
The Software-Defined Warehouse enhancement will enable organisations to consolidate multiple data warehouses into one system.
Teradata has also added a feature called Secure Zones, this is designed to separate data and groups of users for each entity, with secure boundaries between them.
The reasoning behind the move is to help businesses comply with security and privacy laws which restrict the movement of personally identifiable information or co-location of data from multiple business entities, or countries within a single data warehouse.
Herman Wimmer, co-president, Teradata, and head of Data and Analytics Division, said: "Today, many organizations maintain multiple, separate data warehouses to meet unique business unit requirements or to comply with data privacy regulations across countries."
"Through the Software-Defined Warehouse, our customers will enjoy the benefits of simpler data warehouse management, consistent performance, as well as the cost-savings of maintaining a single system."
Another announcement coming from Teradata is the expansion of QueryGrid technologies, which is aimed at helping with the processing of data across an analytical ecosystem.
The QueryGrid is designed to leverage data in multi analytic engines with bi-directional data movement and pushdown processing.
QueryGrid’s expansion now means it works on MapR, Cloudera Distribution for Hadoop, Aster-to-Cloudera Distribution for Hadoop and also enhancements for the Hortonworks Data Platform.
Steve Wooledge, vice president of product marketing, MapR Technologies, said: "Teradata QueryGrid will offer our joint customers a powerful connection between the Teradata Database and the MapR Distribution of Apache™ Hadoop®."
"Organizations can now benefit immediately from seamless access to information across the industry’s most trusted Hadoop and data warehouse platforms."
The benefit of these enhancements is that it reduces the restrictions on data placement among platforms.
