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 NewSQL Engine is a core of Teradata Vantage, based on our best-in-class Teradata Database processing capability. NewSQL refers to the ability to run advanced analytic functions beyond that of standard SQL.

For information on data type mapping between NewSQL Engine and ML Engine, see Teradata Vantage™ User Guide, B700-4002.

Teradata Vantage™ DATASET Data Type describes support for DATASET data. DATASET is a complex data type (CDT) representing self-describing files that are interpreted based on a schema. Teradata support includes the DATASET data type and the functions and methods available for processing, shredding, and publishing DATASET data.
