The Update operator emulates the Teradata MultiLoad utility to perform highly scalable and parallel inserts, updates, deletes, and upserts into new or pre-existing Vantage tables in a single pass.

The Update operator can also be used to insert new rows into the database, but it cannot perform select operations. The Update operator is not supported for column-partitioned tables.
