Teradata CEO aims to regain 'customer focus' with embrace of cloud and open source

Matthew Finnegan | April 5, 2017
The company now aims to be more responsive to user needs having earlier shied away from new technologies like open source and cloud.

IntelliFlex was initially launched last year. The new system, which uses dual 18-core Intel Xeon processes, can provide up to a 7.5x increase in processing power over previous versions, as well as improvements in data analytics processing, and lower energy costs.

In addition, Teradata unveiled its entry level data warehouse, promising a "commodity hardware price". The engineered system enables compute nodes to be reconfigured to meet different analytics needs. For example, hardware running Hadoop can be repurposed to run Teradata Database. The system will be available in Q2 2017.

Tony Baer, principal analyst at Ovum, said that Teradata is offering "the best of both worlds" as customers use Hadoop alongside traditional data warehouse technologies.

"On the same platform, Teradata is giving customers the choice of balancing disparate requirements between cost, service level requirements, and the ability to take advantage of the different types of analytics," he said.

Both products are available on-premise and will be hosted on Teradata's managed cloud in future.
