Teradata has introduced what it claims is the world's fastest datawarehouse. The Blurr appliance uses solid state...
discs, instead of hard discs to support real-time data analytics. The company claims the appliance is 150 times faster than an enterprise hard disc drive system.
Costing about four times as much as Teradata's existing high-end disc-based datawarehouse appliance, the system is designed for applications that require real-time analytics, such as managing a global supply chain, algorithmic trading in financial services, or to track customer behaviour on a website.
