- Each system has a unique name.
- A Teradata system includes all Teradata processing nodes and disk arrays associated with a single instance of Teradata Database.
- Each 680, 2800, or 2850 is always a separate system.
Shared system components (collectives and cabinets, VMSs, BYNET InfiniBand switches, Server Management switches, and TMSs) are not assigned system names.
Nodes in all multi-system configurations share InfiniBand switches.
In a multi-system configuration, all systems must run the same version of SMWeb Services.
