Teradata creates hybrid big data database

Beyond columns and rows.


Teradata has enhanced the hybrid row and column capabilities for its database.

The enhancements will improve access to data stored on column tables that will lead to faster query performance to aid business decisions.

The hybrid row and column capabilities differ from most relational database management systems which typically store data tables in rows or columns.

Dan Harrington, EVP, consulting and support services, Teradata, said: "Teradata developed the industry’s-first hybrid row and column database and has now enhanced it, setting a new standard for database functionality."

"Teradata Database’s unmatched flexibility supports organisations grappling with massive volumes of data, more concurrent users, and increased demands for better intelligence. This new hybrid capability reduces the amount of data read in wide tables, while preserving pinpoint data access for real-time operational queries."

Capabilities allow for pinpointed single-row data retrieval which reduces the need for row scanning and also allows for data to be update within the row.
