Product Description

Basic Teradata Query

General-purpose utility that allows users on a workstation to communicate with one or more Teradata Database systems and format reports for output to print and screen. This utility is accessible from the command line or a script.

Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) Driver for Teradata

Enables ODBC applications running on Microsoft Windows, UNIX/Linux, and Apple OS X operating systems to communicate with the Teradata Database using the open standard ODBC interface.

Shared ICU Libraries for Teradata

Library of routines based on IBM International Components for Unicode. The library provides Unicode support.

Teradata Access Module for Amazon S3 (RedHat, SUSE) Teradata Access Module for Amazon S3 is a component that allows to export data from Amazon S3 and to import data to Amazon S3. This utility works with the Teradata Parallel Transporter products.
Teradata Access Module for Azure (RedHat, SUSE) Teradata Access Module for Azure is a component that allows to export data from Microsoft Azure Blob Storage and to import data to Microsoft Azure Blob Storage. This utility works with the Teradata Parallel Transporter products.

Teradata Access Module for JMS

Command line utility that provides a fast, reliable, asynchronous way to transfer data between any JMS-enabled messaging system and a Teradata Database. This utility works with the Teradata Parallel Transporter products as well as Teradata FastExport, Teradata FastLoad, Teradata MultiLoad, and Teradata Parallel Data Pump.

Teradata Access Module for Kafka (RedHat, SUSE) Teradata Access Module for Kafka is a component that allows to export data from Apache Kafka and to import data to Apache Kafka. This utility works with the Teradata Parallel Transporter products.

Teradata Access Module for Named Pipes

Component that provides an interprocess communication link between a writer process (such as Teradata FastExport) and a reader process (such as Teradata FastLoad). This utility works with the Teradata Parallel Transporter products as well as Teradata FastExport, Teradata FastLoad, Teradata MultiLoad, and Teradata Parallel Data Pump. It is accessible from the command line.

Teradata Access Module for WebSphere MQ

Component that allows Teradata utilities to import data using IBM WebSphere MQ Access Module message queuing middleware. This utility works with the Teradata Parallel Transporter products as well as Teradata FastLoad, Teradata MultiLoad, and Teradata Parallel Data Pump. It is accessible from a command line.

Teradata Archive/Recovery Utility

Command line utility that writes and reads sequential files on a Teradata client system to archive, restore, recover, and copy data in a Teradata Database table. Through its associated script language, it also provides an interface between the Teradata backup applications solutions and the Teradata Database.
Teradata Archive/Recovery Utility is included to support Teradata third-party backup applications.

Teradata C Preprocessor2

Command line utility that provides the programmer of a C-based application a simplified way to read and change information stored in a Teradata Database. This utility interprets and expands SQL statements that have been incorporated in an application program.

Teradata Call-Level Interface version 2

Library of routines that enable an application program to access data in a Teradata Database.

Teradata Data Connector API

Teradata Data Connector API is a component that reads and writes flat files to provide the input/output interface for access modules and BTEQ. For additional information about Teradata Data Connector API, see the following documents:
  • Teradata® Tools and Utilities Access Module Programmer Guide (B035-2424).
  • Teradata® Tools and Utilities Access Module Reference (B035-2425).

Teradata FastExport

Uses multiple sessions to quickly transfer large amounts of data from tables and views of a Teradata Database to a client-based application. This utility is accessible from the command line or a script.

Teradata FastLoad

Quickly loads large amounts of data to empty tables in a Teradata Database. This utility uses multiple sessions to load data into only one table in the database per job. This utility is accessible from the command line or a script.

Teradata GSS Administrative Package

Collection of tools used to configure the embedded TeraGSS and debug those configurations when configuration is required.

Teradata JDBC Driver

Library of routines that enables Java applications to connect to a Teradata Database.

Teradata MultiLoad

Provides an efficient way to deal with batch maintenance of large databases. Useful for performing fast, high-volume maintenance on multiple tables and views of a Teradata Database. This utility is accessible from the command line or a script.

Teradata Parallel Data Pump

Data loading utility that maintains (update, delete, insert, and atomic upsert) data in a Teradata Database. This utility uses standard Teradata SQL to achieve moderate to high data loading rates. Multiple sessions and multi-statement requests are typically used to increase throughput. It is accessible from the command line.

Teradata Parallel Transporter Base

Package containing the script-driven interface (Teradata Parallel Transporter) and the application programming interface (Teradata Parallel Transporter API). Teradata Parallel Transporter is an object-oriented and scalable client application that perform high-speed, parallel data operations (extraction, loading, and updating) on a Teradata Database.

Teradata Parallel Transporter Stream

Contains the Teradata Parallel Transporter Stream Operator. Before you install Teradata Parallel Transporter Stream, Teradata Parallel Transporter Base must be installed. The Stream Operator emulates the Teradata Parallel Data Pump utility to perform high-speed DML transactions (SQL INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, or UPSERT). Transactions are executed in a near-real-time mode on one or more tables in a Teradata Database while queries are performed on those tables.

Teradata Studio Express

Formerly known as Teradata SQL Assistant Java Edition, an information discovery tool that retrieves data from Teradata Database systems and allows the data to be manipulated and stored on the desktop. It is built on top of the Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP). This allows the product to take advantage of the RCP framework for building and deploying native GUI applications to a variety of desktop operating systems.

Teradata Wallet

Package containing a library and a command line tool (tdwallet) that lets users securely store private information such as Teradata Database passwords on client computers. The stored information can then be recalled when logging in to a Teradata Database.
