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.

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

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

Teradata Vantage™ - Geospatial Data Types describes tools and database objects (including data types, functions, and methods) that provide an interface between Teradata Database and applications that manage, analyze, and display geographic information.
