Teradata Aster Big Analytics Discovery Platform

Posted by: Teradata Aster

Embeds MapReduce processing for deeper insights on new data sources and multi-structured data types to deliver analytic capabilities with breakthrough performance and scalability.


An analytics-optimized environment for rapid, on-the-fly data exploration, this is the first appliance in the industry to combine big analytics technologies, such as Hadoop, MapReduce, graph, pattern, and path analysis, with ecosystem compatibility with BI and ETL tools, business friendly ANSI-standard SQL, out-of-the-box MapReduce analytics and mature, enterprise-grade system management solutions. It is a tightly coupled hardware and software solution that contains Aster Database and Apache Hadoop to process structured, unstructured, and semi-structured data. The Aster Big Analytics Appliance is a powerful, ready to-run platform that is pre-configured and optimized specifically for big data storage and analysis. A purpose built, integrated hardware and software solution for analytics at big data scale, the appliance runs the Aster patented SQL-MapReduce® and SQL-H? technology on a time-tested, fully supported Teradata hardware platform. Depending on workload needs, it can be configured with Aster nodes exclusively, Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) Hadoop nodes exclusively, or a mixture of Aster and Hadoop nodes. Additionally, integrated backup nodes are available for data protection.By minimizing the number of moving parts required for deployment, the appliance offers easy, integrated management of an enterprise-ready information discovery solution with the benefits of optimized performance, continuous availability, and linear scalability. The result? You can bring information discovery to the business by just plugging the appliance into existing infrastructure, thereby leveraging your current investments in technology and resources.
