It seems that Teradata has had enough of all the newcomers to the data warehousing market.
The company has released a new suite of products catering to both large and small enterprises, all based on the new Taradata 12.0 database engine.
The lineup includes the Teradata 550 SMP (symmetric multiprocessing) system and the Teradata 2500m, both aimed at the low end with prices starting at $67,000 per terabyte, and the upper-level Teradata 5550 that starts at $200,000 per terabyte and includes application and database portability.
Customers can also license the Teradata 12.0 platform for use on the Intel platform of their choice. An Express Edition for developers is also available for Windows servers and laptops, along with a tools and utilities package.
