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.
The primary purpose of Teradata Vantage™ - SQL Request and Transaction Processing is to facilitate better understanding of the output reported by the EXPLAIN request modifier.
Teradata Vantage™ - SQL Request and Transaction Processing describes the Teradata SQL parser, including its component parts, the query capture database, the database components of related utilities, and the basics of the Teradata transaction processing environment.
This preface describes the organization of Teradata Vantage™ - SQL Request and Transaction Processing and identifies information you should know before using it. This documentation should be used in conjunction with that other SQL information.
