Teradata Presto

Presto is an open source distributed SQL query engine designed for running interactive analytic queries against data sources of all sizes. Presto enables companies to leverage standard ANSI SQL to execute interactive queries against Hadoop data. With Presto, utilizing Teradata’s QueryGrid connector for Presto, customers can execute queries that originate in Teradata Database that join data within the data warehouse and Hadoop leveraging Presto.

Teradata Presto is a free download available for use with each Teradata Database software tier except Developer.



Teradata QueryGrid

Teradata QueryGrid lets your business work with a seamless data fabric across all of your data and analytical engines for no-hassle analytics. You can get the most value out of all your data by taking advantage of specialized processing engines operating as a cohesive analytic environment. Teradata QueryGrid enables you to minimize data movement and process data where it resides and transparently automate analytic processing and data movement between systems.

Users may query data in Amazon S3 by using Teradata QueryGrid, which consists of Teradata QueryGrid Manager and Teradata QueryGrid Connectors. Using Presto and a Teradata-to-Presto connector, data is converted from file storage in S3 to a Teradata format in order to land the data in Teradata Database tables. This approach enables users to process the S3 data in-memory, thereby potentially saving money by avoiding AWS data egress charges for moving data out of S3. The connector may also be used to move a subset of data to Teradata rather than batch movement of full tables.

Teradata QueryGrid is licensed separately for use with Teradata Database Enterprise; please contact Teradata Customer Support for details.



Teradata REST Services

The Teradata REST (Representational State Transfer) Services interface to the Teradata Database provides application developers a simplified, modern, common interface to connect to data from a web page or application. Teradata REST Services is a foundation for supporting Restful APIs into various Teradata products.

Teradata REST Services is a free software AMI included with each Teradata Database software tier.



Teradata Server Management
