Teradata Servers Boost Data Warehouse Power
Teradata Introduces Servers To Boost Data Warehouse Power
Data warehouses enabled to support better, faster decisions that drive revenue growth
Responding to customer requests for enhanced data warehouse power and flexibility, the new NCR servers enable customers to create an optimal balance between improved storage and performance. Customers may order a system that is configured to provide up to a 34 percent performance improvement, which can be leveraged for faster response times, increased workloads or more users, or up to 40 percent more storage capacity over the previous generation of servers. This flexible configuration enables customers to create a more powerful data warehouse to meet ever-increasing business workloads.
"The enhanced NCR servers process significantly more data, more quickly. This leading-edge performance enables customers to use their Teradata data warehouse to make better, faster business decisions that drive revenue growth," said Julian Beavis, Teradata vice president for New Zealand, Australia and South East Asia. "Based on the customer's needs, the NCR servers support a combination of higher performance or more data storage. In addition, our servers are delivered configured and ready-to-use so businesses can more quickly get their system into production and achieve a measurable return on investment."
The new servers have been configured to coexist with several previous generations of NCR servers. This capability enables existing customers to expand the data warehouse to meet their growing business needs, while protecting the investments in their existing hardware.
The NCR 4980 Server and NCR 5380 Server include Intel Pentium Xeon 3.06 GHz processors and hyper-threading technology. This hyper-threading design allows a single processor to manage data as if it were two processors by handling data instructions in parallel rather than one at a time, increasing system performance and throughput.
servers run on NCR UNIX SVR4 MP-RAS and Microsoft Windows
2000 Advanced Server. They can be configured with 36 GB or
73 GB NCR enterprise storage options or EMC storage
