Teradata HW

Hi,
I am new to Teradata, and I want to know a little about the HW.
Is the HW proprietary to Teradata? who makes it?
and can it repurposed for other things if Teradata database is moved to a new HW?
 
Thanks,
Alaa

Hi Alaa,
only the network (Teradata's Bynet) is proprietary, otherwise Teradata servers are standard Intel-based hardware (OEMed DELLs) running Suse Enterprise Linux.

Hi Dieter,

nThanks for your respond, so, the Database servers can be repurposed to whatever purpose, when time come to refresh the HW?
Thanks,
Alaa
