Using JupyterHub, the SampleNotebooks/sql/GettingStarted notebook describes how to write and execute SQL.

Load data into Teradata Vantage Use any of the following options:
  • Use the Editor to load CSV data from your laptop or PC without running SQL commands.
  • Use Editor or JupyterHub to run SQL commands using NOS to load CSV, JSON, and Parquet data from an external store into a local table.

See Shared and Dedicated Space in Vantage Trial and Risks.

For examples of loading data, see

Run the Featured Use Cases.

Run data lake analytics using NOS

Run any of the data analytics use cases. See Featured Use Cases.

After using the use cases to learn how, you can join external data with data stored in cloud data lakes using NOS. Use SQL commands in Editor.

Explore data in object stores Use Editor or JupyterHub to run SQL commands to query database tables and access external object storage. See Accessing the Teradata-Managed Object Store and Access Your External Object Store.  
Download result sets from a query Use Editor to download CSV files. Each file is limited to 10,000 rows of data.

Use JupyterHub to download result sets. In your JupyterHub workspace, navigate to the Teradata>ResultSets directory that contains your data, right-click the files, and select Download. The BackUpYourWork notebook describes how to download CSV files.

Use JupyterHub to write and execute SQL, Python, and R code

Before creating your own Teradata SQL, Python, and R notebooks, see how it is done by using the notebooks in the SampleNotebooks/ and UseCases/ directories.

See JupyterHub and Featured Use Cases.

For more on writing SQL, Python, or R code with JupyterHub and view helpful videos, see https://teradata.github.io/jupyterextensions/.

Create a Columnar table Use Teradata Columnar to organize data of a user-defined table or join index on storage to reduce I/O for certain classes of queries. You can partition a table or join index by column. You must log in to see the Orange Books.
Use Temporal Use Teradata Temporal for the time dimension, including facilities for storing, querying, and updating data with respect to time. A temporal database distinguishes between historical data, current data, and data that will be in effect in the future. Teradata Temporal includes a temporal version of SQL, DDL, data types, and DML for temporal tables. To view tutorial videos, go to Teradata TechBytes on YouTube and select the following:
