Teradata Review

Easy to design and performs well, but needs to be more scalable and flexible

What is our primary use case?

We use it as a data warehouse.

What is most valuable?

I like this solution's ease of design and the fact that its performance is quite good. It is stable as well.

What needs improvement?

The scalability could be better. The on-premises solution is always more complicated to scale.

The flexibility could be improved. The product is good if you know what you're planning to do. If you're designing as well, upfront, then it's fine. However, if you've made a mistake in the design work or your system, then it could be quite complex and expensive, and it may not preform well.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using Teradata for around four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Teradata is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I've worked on the on-premises solution, and it is always more complicated to scale. We currently have hundreds of users.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used Oracle Database before Teradata.

What other advice do I have?

Teradata is quite a specific tool, so if you have suitable use cases, then I would recommend it. On a scale from one to ten, I would rate this tool at seven.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
