Amp Sharing

Hi All,

Let me know whether we can share the amps across different platforms.
If it is so, how can we do that(mean the process)

Thanks

Re: Amp Sharing

Hi,
what do you mean by "share the amps across different platforms"?

Different hardware generations, e.g. 5400 and 5450 within a system?
Mixing OSes, Windows and Unix, within a system?
Nodes within a clique?

Re: Amp Sharing

Thanks!

Its like, let me consider 2 amps A1,A2 on node N1 working on windows.
Two more amps A3 and A4 on node N2 working on Unix.
So now if I want to share the data on A4 and insert to the tables residing on A1 or A2.

How this can be done?
May be by combing nodes as a Clique i suppose.
Is that possible if so how its is done?.
Please let me know about it.

Re: Amp Sharing

Within a single Teradata system, all database nodes have the same OS. And all user tables are hash-distributed across all the AMPs. Teradata does not directly support a query running on one system but accessing data that resides on a totally separate system.
