Teradata, a division of NCR Corporation, has shipped an enhanced version of the Teradata database running on Linux, specifically the 64-bit version of SUSE Linux Enterprise from Novell. With the 64-bit SUSE Linux Enterprise operating system, Teradata now delivers the same enterprise-class data warehouse scalability, availability and manageability as it does with Windows or Teradata’s own UNIX operating system, UNIX MP-RAS.
Overstock.com has seen early success with the solution. Jack Garzella, vice president of enterprise data warehouse, reporting and analytics for Overstock.com, said, “SUSE Linux Enterprise is a key component of Overstock.com’s architecture and we’re pleased to be able to run it on Teradata’s hardware with the Teradata database.”
We’re seeing more of these developments as Linux offers more choice to partners and customers, and Novell offers the best enterprise-class Linux.
