More IBM Netezza Performance Server Pros →

"The performance is great, we are able to query our data in one operation.""Teradata has good performance, the response times are very fast. Overall the solution is easy to use. When we do the transformation, we have all of our staging and aggregation data available.""The most valuable features of Teradata are that it is a massively parallel platform and I can receive a lot of data and get the queries out correctly, especially if it's been appropriately designed. The native features make it very suitable for multiple large data tasks in a structured data environment. Additionally, the automation is very good.""Teradata's most valuable feature is that it's easy to use.""It's very, very fast""The most valuable feature of Teradata is security. It runs on Unix and Linux platforms which provide better security.""The flexibility in design is very good.""There are several features of Teradata that I like. One of the most basic is the indexes. I also like that it provides lower TCO. It also has the optimizer feature which is a good feature and isn't found in other legacy systems. Parallelism is also another feature I like in Teradata because when you are running or hosting on multiple systems, you have this shared-nothing architecture that helps. Loading and unloading in Teradata are also really helpful compared to other systems."

Cons
"IBM Netezza Performance Server could improve its interface, support for big data, and APA-based connectivity should be available."

More IBM Netezza Performance Server Cons →

"The setup is not straightforward.""The scalability could be better. The on-premises solution is always more complicated to scale.""I've been using the same UI for 20 years in Teradata. It could use some updating. Adding more stability around Teradata Studio would be outstanding. Teradata Studio is a Java-based version of their tool. It's much better now, but it still has some room for improvement.""Apart from Control-M, it would be nice if it could integrate with other tools.""It could use some more advanced analytics relating to structured and semi-structured data.""The solution is stable. However, there are times when we are using large amounts of data and we can see some latency issues.""I'm not sure about the unstructured data management capabilities. It could be improved.""I would like to see more integration with many different types of data."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "The solution requires a license."
  • "The price of Teradata is on the higher side, and I think that it where they lose out on some of their business."
  • "The price of the solution could be reduced, it is expensive."
  • "Teradata is expensive, so it's typically marketed to big customers. However, there have been some changes, and Teradata is now offering more flexible pricing models and equipment leasing. They've added pay-as-you-go and cloud models, so it's changing, but Teradata is generally known as an expensive high-end product."
  • "The cost of running Teradata is quite high, but you get a good return on investment."
  • "Teradata pricing is fine, and it's competitive with all the legacy models. On a scale of one to five, with one being the worst and five being the best, I'm giving Teradata a three, because it can be a little expensive, when compared to other solutions."
  • "The price of Teradata is expensive. However, what they deliver they are outstanding. If you're looking for an inexpensive solution to run a database, this isn't your tool. It's the Ferrari of databases for data warehousing."
  • "The price of Teradata could be less expensive."
