Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a Cofounder & Technical Advisor here at the BeyeNETWORK. Having covered the business intelligence and data warehousing industry for more than 15 years, I'm looking forward to a more interactive form of communication with all of you. Please share your comments and thoughts!



Teradata announced today that they are now offering a new family of platforms designed to address needs from entry level to active enterprise level. This is a significant move on Teradata's part and it's aimed directly at the appliance market that has been nibbling away at Teradata's market share over the past few years.

I grabbed a piece of the press release below, the biggest thing here is that you can get into Teradata for $67K per terabyte!!!

Teradata 550 SMP (symmetric multiprocessing), with a price of $67,000(1) per terabyte, a departmental data warehouse.

Teradata 2500, priced at $125,000(1) per terabyte, an entry-level data warehouse for companies that are just starting out or for those with other analytical platform requirements in their enterprises.

Teradata 5550, an active data warehouse-class platform, starts at $200,000(1) per terabyte depending on the performance and availability needs of the customer. The Teradata 5550 and Teradata 12 provide up to two times the system performance over their respective predecessors.

Looks like Teradata is having fun with their new found corporate freedom, great move!
