You can deploy a wide range of configurations depending on the type of system you need. A development and test system is typically 1, 2, or 4 vNodes, while a high-performance production system can have up to 128 vNodes, depending on your requirements and the system performance you want to achieve. If you do not get the results you expect, contact Teradata Professional Services to schedule an appointment.
For each licensed physical core you purchase, you get two virtual cores.
