Programming Reference

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.

For information on data type mapping between NewSQL Engine and ML Engine, see Teradata Vantage™ User Guide, B700-4002.
