Teradata launches first configurable appliance for big data with choice of Hadoop distributions

10/07/2015 by


Teradata, the big data analytics and marketing applications company, launched the Teradata Appliance for Hadoop®, version 5, which is configurable, ready-to-run and offers a choice of the latest version of Hadoop from Hortonworks® (HDP™ 2.3), and for the first time, Cloudera (Cloudera Enterprise 5.4). This appliance gives users the flexibility to accelerate time-to-value and reduce Hadoop cost of ownership.

Teradata’s new appliance helps resolve challenges that some companies have in implementing Hadoop, providing faster time-to-market with a fully-engineered, enterprise-class solution – one that reduces total cost of ownership while facilitating integration with the Teradata® Unified Data Architecture™ (UDA), a framework for organisations to address all types of data and multiple Teradata systems.

The new Teradata Appliance for Hadoop enables users to accelerate the deployment of their Hadoop distribution from Cloudera or Hortonworks. In addition, it is the industry’s first configurable platform, allowing customers to meet specific enterprise needs for performance or data capacity. Delivered pre-packaged, the enterprise-class Teradata Appliance simplifies and speeds Hadoop deployments while reducing the total cost of ownership at many levels – from installation and integration throughout the operational process. The Teradata Appliance for Hadoop with Cloudera or Hortonworks is backed by recognised world-class Teradata technical support, available 24X7 globally.

“In a world of increasing data volumes and complexity, Teradata leads by providing powerful technology options to our customers, whose requirements, strategies, industries, and objectives are each very different,” said Hermann Wimmer, co-president of Teradata. “Once again, Teradata introduces innovation that gives our customers more freedom of choice while accelerating their time to business value. The new Teradata Appliance for Hadoop will be a great addition to the many who are adopting Teradata UDA.”

Teradata Appliance for Hadoop 5 
The current generation of Hadoop software offers organisations the ability to run a growing and varied set of workloads from batch processing of extreme data sets to real-time analytics. The new Teradata Appliance for Hadoop is the first to allow customers freedom of choice – and quickly meet specialised analytic performance and data capacity needs.

Performance – The Appliance can be optimised to run streaming applications like Spark, Storm, and SQL-Hadoop engines such as Presto and Impala. It is optimised for intensive computational workloads with more CPU and memory, and smaller storage disks. The Appliance leverages Intel® Core™ Processor (Haswell) technology that delivers significant performance and robust analytics.

Capacity – If a customer needs to store greater quantities of infrequently used data with acceptable levels of performance, then the Teradata Appliance for Hadoop can be configured with the lowest cost storage, adequate memory, and fewer CPUs. The Teradata Appliance for Hadoop scales to meet customers’ growth needs.
