Data Placement to Support Parallel Processing

Balanced Workloads

The key to parallel processing is balancing the workload of the database management system. Teradata Database balances its workload by distributing table rows evenly across its AMPs and by giving the AMPs the sole responsibility for the data they own. See Chapter 8: “Teradata Database Indexes and Partitioning” for more information.
