Teradata Vantage

The Teradata Package for R product combines the benefits of open source R language environment with the massive parallel processing capabilities of Teradata Vantage, which includes the Machine Learning Engine analytic functions and the Analytics Database in-database analytic functions. Teradata Package for R allows users to develop and run R programs that take advantage of the Big Data and Machine Learning analytics capabilities of Vantage.

The Teradata Package for R product is tdplyr, an R library package like other open source R packages. The package interface makes available to R users a collection of functions for analytics that reside on Vantage, so that R users can perform in-database analytics with no SQL coding required. Specifically, the tdplyr package provides functions for data manipulation and transformation, data filtering and sub-setting, and can be used in conjunction with open source R capabilities. Moreover, the tdplyr package conforms and works with the functions of the dbplyr package and most of the verbs of the dplyr package.

The Teradata Package for R works over connections to:

  • Teradata Vantage with Analytics Database and ML Engine
  • Teradata Vantage with Analytics Database only
    For the Teradata Vantage with Analytics Database only type of connection, only Analytics Database analytic functions are accessible.
