Teradata Parallel Transporter (PT) is an object-oriented client application that provides scalable, high-speed, and parallel data:

  • Extraction
  • Loading
  • Updating

These capabilities can be extended with customizations or third-party products.

Teradata PT uses but expands on the functionality of the traditional Teradata extract and load utilities: FastLoad, MultiLoad, FastExport, and TPump, also known as standalone utilities.

Teradata PT can load data into and export data from any accessible database object in Teradata Database or other data store using Teradata PT operators or access modules.
