Expansion involves adding any combination of disk arrays, memory, vprocs, or nodes (with BYNETs), and then running the Parallel Upgrade Tool (PUT) and Configuration and Reconfiguration utilities.

The Reconfiguration utility provides an estimate of the duration of an outage. See Support Utilities.

Upgrade means upgrading the Teradata database software.
