Teradata Review

Query tuning is simple, but this is a costly solution.

Valuable Features:

  • It is simple for me as a developer
  • Query tuning is simple.

Improvements to My Organization:

It's simple to use and scalable.

Use of Solution:

I've used it for eight years.

Deployment Issues:

No issues encountered.

Stability Issues:

No issues encountered.

Scalability Issues:

No issues encountered.

Implementation Team:

We used a vendor team who were 7/10.


The speed has been increased.

Other Solutions Considered:

We also looked at Hadoop.

Other Advice:

It's simple but costly. However, this doesn't concern me as I have to develop applications. My employer can give me any product and I will learn and develop with it.  Almost all database products are 80% same.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

It's not that simple. Everytime you add data to a table (extra columns) you might have to change or make additional join indexes. While other databases like IBM PDA or HP Vertica you dont have to do that, for me those require less dba work.
