The Teradata Unified Data Architecture, which was previously announced, brings together Teradata, Teradata Aster, and Hadoop technology as well as best-of-breed partner tools, to create a cohesive architecture. This new best-of-breed architecture makes Teradata the first vendor to provide a truly comprehensive framework to handle all types of data and any analytic techniques.

"With adoption of fabric-based computing, Teradata offers a high-speed, private analytic network with flexible configurations as the backbone of the entire Teradata Unified Data Architecture," said Scott Gnau, president, Teradata Labs. "The speed of connection and robust management of fabric-based computing empowers our customers to take hyper-speed analytics and business insights to a new level."

Teradata leverages industry-leading components within its Unified Data Architecture – some of which include: SUSE Linux Enterprise Server operating system, NetApp storage systems, Intel ® Xeon ® Processors, and now Mellanox InfiniBand for fabric-based computing. 

"With the selection of Mellanox InfiniBand, Teradata has completed the move to a completely open hardware stack," said Scott Gnau, president, Teradata Labs. "By leveraging an open stack of high volume hardware components, we can uniquely provide our customers with the highest quality, best performance, and quickest time to market."

Teradata has selected Mellanox InfiniBand hardware to provide fast, reliable data flow and interconnection for all reporting and analytic applications that run on the workload-specific Teradata platforms, Teradata Aster Discovery Platform, as well as open-source Apache Hadoop. InfiniBand offers up to 20 times faster communication for all elements of the fabric-based computing for business intelligence. It offers the highest performance, scalability, and reliability to enable the processing of large amounts of data and the delivery of results in record time.

The combination of InfiniBand hardware and Teradata BYNET®V5 software offers customers a best-of-breed private network solution with breakthrough scaling and the fastest, most robust communication. BYNET software, field proven in thousands of massive parallel processing (MPP) systems, is Teradata's secret sauce that provides on-the-fly, in-query data sorting, unique point-to-point, and broadcast communication functions. In addition, it intelligently links the processing units of the Unified Data Architecture to enhance performance. BYNET maximizes data movement across dual networks, leverages network fail-over capability for full availability, and easily scales to over 2,000 parallel processing units – enabling up to 61 petabytes of data in the Teradata Enterprise Data Warehouse.
