White Paper: Hadoop Appliances and Teradata – Philip Howard, Bloor Research

This paper, written by Philip Howard of Bloor Research, discusses the case for Hadoop-based appliances, which comes down to three fundamental elements: initial costs, ongoing costs and opportunity. The paper also explores the specific features of the Teradata Appliance for Hadoop and how this particular appliance not only offers the advantages of appliances in general, but also overcomes some of the objections commonly raised against appliance-based deployments.
