Teradata

Hortonworks and Teradata have partnered to provide a clear path to Big Analytics via stable and reliable Hadoop for the enterprise. The Teradata Portfolio for Hadoop is a flexible offering of products and services for customers to integrate Hadoop into their data architecture while taking advantage of the world-class service and support Teradata provides.

Today, organizations struggle to capture and process massive and growing volumes of data for use within their analytics platforms. Data that was once thought of as low to medium value, inaccessible and not able to analyze or even worse, exhaust data, can all be used in the context of business analytics. The enterprise has realized this potential and has adopted Apache Hadoop as one of the go to technologies to capture, store and process these net new data sources in their modern data architecture.

A Deep Partnership


The joint approach provides analysts the ability to leverage big data in their analysis while using familiar tools. It is analytics and data discovery/exploration with Hortonworks Data Platform inside. The two companies have delivered an engineered solution that extends the value of Teradata with the scale and power of Hadoop The key points of integration include:

  • Hadoop-enabled Analytics with Teradata SQL-H and Apache HCatalog: Teradata SQL-H empowers business analysts to directly access vast amounts of data in Hadoop for advanced analytics. With SQL-H, analysts use familiar BI and reporting tools and their existing business knowledge and SQL skills but on Hadoop. SQL-H provides a SQL-like interface into Hadoop and allows for seamless integration with Teradata.
  • Deploy quickly and simply with the Teradata Aster Big Analytics Appliance: The appliance packages the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) with Teradata Aster products on a server optimized for big analytics.
  • Empower Management and Operations of your Big Analytics Environment: Apache Ambari (the monitoring and management tool package in HDP) is integrated with Teradata Viewpoint and Teradata Vital Infrastructure, the tools that the IT operations use to manage a Teradata environment.
  • High Performance, Stable and Reliable Integration: Powered by Teradata Connector for Hadoop the Hortonworks Connector for Teradata is the fastest and most scalable way to transfer data between Teradata Database and Apache Hadoop. Jointly developed by Teradata and Hortonworks, the Connector plugs into Hortonworks Data Platform and offers wire-speed, fully parallel data transfers between Teradata and Apache Hive, HBase, HCatalog or HDFS. The connector lets you move more data faster, freeing up more time for critical data processing.
