Re: Cost Comparison between teradata and oracle

for making such a decision, you have to consider lots of factors like
1. the kind of data you are going to store
2. the type of data
3. the approx size of data and the expected growth of data
4. usage statistics
5. kind of interface - mainframe, unix etc

These are just some factors. for more details, you can contact Veronica.Chong at teradata dot com

also, check out the Forrester report on Teradata. You can get some insights from that. http://www.teradata.com/t/WorkArea/DownloadAsset.aspx?id=10115

Personally, I will say Teradata is lot better than Oracle if you want to have a good and robust DWH system.
