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.

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

This document explains how to use international character sets with the Teradata Database and includes information on:

  • Client and server character sets
  • Site-defined and extended site-defined client character sets
  • Collation sequences
  • Teradata Database character mapping
