Teradata version 15 adds support for ‘Internet of things’ standard JSON
Teradata is hoping to gain ground in the hotly competitive data-warehousing and analytics market with QueryGrid, a new product that allows users to run a single SQL-based query across multiple data stores, from Teradata’s own system to Hadoop and rival databases.
QueryGrid will be available in the third quarter and is aligned with the release of Teradata Database 15, which was also announced Monday.
Instead of moving data, the queries are pushed into target systems and the processing occurs there, Teradata said. This gives users the ability to choose the best processing engine for a particular job while working within a single environment, according to Teradata.
The approach echoes SAP’s Smart Data Services for its HANA in-memory database and Business Warehouse, where remote stores are viewed as virtual tables.
QueryGrid’s features build on Teradata’s previously available Unified Data Architecture, which integrates Hadoop with Teradata’s data warehouse and Aster Discovery Platform.
