Teradata Vantage allows you to allocate several types of space:
|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.|
