I Have a Query

Most of my conversations during the Washington conference last week were about Teradata’s cloud computing offerings and the significance of the new platform, the first all solid state drive (SSD) data warehouse appliance. We thought that people elsewhere might like to get the same additional explanations, so my colleagues found a quiet corner where they could film one of my conversations and produced a brief video from this material.

 

If you’re interested you can watch me explain why solid state disks make data warehousing so much faster (it all goes down to the von Neumann problem, as I have written before) and elaborate the difference between private clouds and public clouds. I intend to write a longer post about the latter topic soon, but for the time being you might find this video helpful.
