Teradata Vantage™ is our flagship analytic platform offering, which evolved from our industry-leading Teradata® Database. Until references in content are updated to reflect this change, the term Teradata Database is synonymous with Teradata Vantage.

Teradata Vantage™ - Temporal Table Support describes the concepts fundamental to understanding Teradata support for temporal (time-aware) tables and data. This documentation includes SQL language reference material and examples specific to the practical creation and manipulation of temporal tables.

Teradata also supports ANSI/ISO compatible temporal tables and syntax, which are different in several respects from the temporal tables and syntax described here. For more information on ANSI-compatible temporal tables, see ANSI Temporal Tables and Teradata Vantage™ - ANSI Temporal Table Support, B035-1186.
