Teradata Announces Portfolio For Hadoop
June 28th, 2013 By: John Rath
Teradata (TDC) announced its Portfolio for Hadoop, with open, flexible and comprehensive options to deploy and manage Apache Hadoop. The portfolio includes Hadoop-based product platforms, software, consulting services, training and customers support. Teradata’s innovations have made Hadoop easier to integrate into modern enterprise data architectures and enable more users to know more, and do more with data in Hadoop.
“Teradata is now off and running as a trusted single source for all things Hadoop with many leading customers such as Dell, Inc., Otto Group, PT XL Axiata Tbk mobile telecommunications, Swisscom Schweiz AG, and Wells Fargo Bank,” said Scott Gnau, president, Teradata Labs. “We built The Teradata Portfolio for Hadoop to support organizations struggling with Hadoop implementations by taking the complexity and cost out of deploying and managing the solutions.”
For turn-key solutions Teradata offers two premium platforms: Teradata Appliance for Hadoop and Teradata Aster Big Analytics Appliance. These premium-level platforms benefit from unique software features not available from other vendors that enhance Hadoop’s reliability, manageability, connectivity, and improve the ease of use. For engineering-led IT departments who prefer to build their own systems, but want the support of Teradata, two commodity platforms for Hadoop are available: Teradata Commodity Offering for Hadoop and Teradata Software Only for Hadoop.
Hadoop Software Integration
Teradata has also partnered with several innovative software vendors to provide even more security and enterprise integration for Hadoop as part of the enterprise data architecture.
- The Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) includes interfaces needed for deep integration with essential components of the modern data architecture like Teradata.
- The Informatica Platform is part of the Teradata Unified Data Architecture and it delivers data integration optimization and increased developer productivity for the data warehouse, discovery platform, and Hadoop.
- The Protegrity Big Data Protector is bundled with the Teradata Appliance for Hadoop, allowing users to have file and field-level data security for sensitive data ranging from privacy to PCI.
- Revelytix Loom provides a smarter Hadoop for the Teradata Appliance for Hadoop, including dynamic dataset management, automatically calculated data lineage for all transformations, and Activescan entity resolution, which automatically detects, parses, and profiles any new HDFS files.
“Teradata and Hortonworks have extended their strategic partnership to allow Teradata to resell and offer support for Hortonworks Data Platform. Working together, we are simplifying the deployment of Apache Hadoop and enabling customers to leverage all their data to create substantial business value,” said Rob Bearden, chief executive officer, Hortonworks. “Now Teradata can offer the proven 100 percent open-source Hortonworks Data Platform, customer support, and direct access to the latest technologies coming from the Apache Hadoop community.”
