For anyone new to Teradata, this session is to acquaint you with the Teradata technology.

We explore Teradata’s parallel environment; take a look inside a Node at Parsing Engines(PEs), the BYNET, and Access Module Processors (AMPs). We also discuss how the File System and Disk Sub-system works and what happens when you want to add Nodes. Also included is an intro to Teradata’s Indexes, Columnar, compression, and some of the amazing optimizations that are automatically performed by Teradata when you submit a query.

Note: This is an expanded version of “Inside a Teradata Node” and many of the concepts are repeated for continuity and covered in more depth.
