This software is sold, deployed, and supported separately.

Teradata Data Stream Controller (DSC) Provides administrative functions and metadata storage and is a key component of the backup and restore of Teradata systems. The DSC is an administrative server required to enable object-level backup and restore of Vantage. It contains a repository for all backup and restore job definitions as well as related configuration details for Teradata systems and backup targets.

This software must be deployed at the same time as SQL Engine. It cannot be deployed separately.
