NICE, France, April 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TERADATA UNIVERSE CONFERENCE -- Teradata (NYSE: TDC), the leading data and analytics company, today announced an all-memory update to its flagship Teradata IntelliFlex ™ platform that delivers extreme performance and storage density in a single, ultra-efficient cabinet. The upgrades are empowered by a move to all solid state drives (SSD), which make it possible to reduce required data center space while delivering a massive increase in processing power for mission-critical analytics at the speed-of-thought. Teradata also announced the new, ready-to-run Teradata IntelliBase ™ platform - revolutionary in its single cabinet support for multiple software technologies, re-deployable hardware, and low, commodity hardware price-point. Both products are offered on-premises, with Teradata IntelliCloud ™ availability coming soon, and run the same Teradata database software to enable a high-performance hybrid cloud solution. Together, these platforms give customers new options that can help drive new business revenue opportunities, mitigate operational costs, and accelerate customer service. With the massive growth in data, companies depend on trusted analytics to turn that data into valuable and timely insights to drive business decisions and compete effectively. They are employing increasingly advanced analytic techniques and putting that power into the hands of more users across their organization. As business demand for analytics increases, a powerful and elastic infrastructure is required to handle planned and unplanned spikes in demand. "Our customers are experiencing unprecedented growth in their advanced analytics needs and now require massive gains in their data warehouse compute power," said Oliver Ratzesberger, Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer at Teradata. "We specifically designed IntelliFlex to meet these demands inexhaustibly. By transitioning to all SSDs we now provide an all-memory appliance capable of delivering up to seven times the compute power per cabinet of our previous product - plus rapid performance elasticity that is simply unmatched in our market. We are providing our customers with more performance, more storage, and more memory in the same footprint, and at half the energy consumed per unit of performance delivered." Superior Teradata IntelliFlex Platform Teradata IntelliFlex, launched in early 2016, delivered a revolutionary, fabric-based architecture that enables the independent scaling of processing power and storage to match changing workload requirements. In its third release over the last 12 months, Teradata continues the rapid innovation of its flagship IntelliFlex platform.
