TERADATA ASTER DATABASE
TERADATA ASTER MAPREDUCE APPLIANCE
Aster Data: Optimized for MapReduce; Speaks SQL; Enterprise Ready
Massively Parallel SQL Database technology has transformed the way that businesses do business, by enabling organizations to store, integrate and query vast volumes of detailed data to understand what happened, what is happening - and what needs to be done about it.
Now new types of data and new types of Analytics are emerging, which promise to be just as transformative. But how to harness them to drive business value?
Introducing Aster Data. Like Teradata, it's a massively parallel database management system. And like Teradata, it was designed from the ground-up for Analytics.
Unlike Teradata, Aster Data is built on a polymorphic file system. In plain English, that means that it can store complex, non-relational objects natively. And thanks to it's patented SQL-MapReduce interface, it brings all the power of MapReduce to bear on objects simple and complex, only without the complexity normally associated with MapReduce.
Now Aster Data Version 5.0 introduces support for even more complex analytic functions - and the new Aster Data appliance makes deploying robust, fault tolerant, scalable and high-performance MapReduce processing into your organization a snap. If all of that wasn't already enough, the new Teradata - Aster connector means that you can move data seamlessly between Aster Data and Teradata, so that, for example, relational meta-data derived from Analytics on complex objects can be integrated with the data that you already store and manage in Teradata - and analytic models that you build in Aster Data can be enhanced and extended with that same data.
It's MapReduce, only simpler to deploy, manage and leverage.
