Teradata Vantage allows you to allocate several types of space:

Type Description
Permanent space (perm space) Stores data and database objects. Tables use the perm space owned by the containing database, as needed.

Owners of perm space own any object that inhabits the space.

Spool space Provides the space to run database queries. By default, running queries draws spool space from any unused system space.
Temporary space (temp space) Stores temporary tables and volatile tables. Allocation and use of temp space is optional.
