Does anyone know of any options for connecting to a Teradata DB from .NET Core?
.NET Standard 2.0 doesn't support ODBC, and the current driver page from Teradata doesn't show a .NET Core provider.
This would be .NET Core running on a Debian docker image.
Would you provide info as to which company you are representing? Unfortunately, there isn’t any option at this time. Teradata is still in development of .NET Core Data Provider with a target release in 2018.
I can't comment on the name of the Client here. That's unfortunate that you won't be providing until sometime 2018. We've decided to go a different route.
This is highly unfortunate that TeraData is not providing a driver till 2018. There is a great adoption for .NET core both in enterprise and in public cloud. May be you should consider releasing a driver compliant with .NET 2.0 ADO.NET kind of targetting .NET core 2.0 and then start supporting other framework like EF core and so on. That will provide us some leverage. But now we have to take a different route
