Teradata Appliance for Hadoop 5 is configurable, ready-to-run and offers a choice of the latest version of Hadoop from Hortonworks (HDP 2.3), and for the first time, Cloudera (Cloudera Enterprise 5.4). The appliance facilitates integration with the Teradata Unified Data Architecture (UDA), a framework for organizations to address all types of data and multiple Teradata systems. The Appliance can be optimized to run streaming applications like Spark, Storm and SQL-Hadoop engines, such as Presto and Impala. It is optimized for intensive computational workloads with more CPU and memory, and smaller storage disks. The Appliance leverages Intel Core Processor (Haswell) technology that delivers significant performance and robust analytics.
