Driving Digital Transformations

Teradata Database–the core of the Teradata SQL Engine–is designed with a patented, massively parallel processing (MPP) architecture. This allows complex analytics workloads to be broken down and distributed in order to perform as efficiently as possible. It’s the foundation that provides you the scalability to start small and then expand into an enterprise-wide, mission-critical analytics system.
