Teradata PT can load data into and export data from any accessible database object in the Teradata Database or other data store for which there exists an access operator or an access module. Producer and consumer operators are collectively known as access operators.

The data source or destination for Teradata PT jobs can include any of the following sources:

  • Database (relational and nonrelational) or database server
  • File or data storage device
  • Objects (images, pictures, voice, texts, etc.)

Between the data source and destination, Teradata PT jobs perform the following processes:

  • Retrieving, storing, and transporting specific data objects via parallel data streams
  • Merging or splitting multiple parallel data streams
  • Filtering, conditioning and cleansing of data
