Database Size Considerations

The sizes of the Teradata systems managing relational databases range up to 2,048 CPUs and 2,048 GB of memory supporting 128 TB or larger databases. The BYNET interconnect supports up to 1,084 nodes.

Database sizing considerations must take the following issues into account:

  • System disk contents
  • Data disk contents
  • Data disk space allocation
  • Determination of usable data space
  • Appendix B: “Teradata System Limits” contains information about the various minimum and maximum sizes of database objects.
