I am new to Teradata, and I want to know a little about the HW.
Is the HW proprietary to Teradata? who makes it?
and can it repurposed for other things if Teradata database is moved to a new HW?
only the network (Teradata's Bynet) is proprietary, otherwise Teradata servers are standard Intel-based hardware (OEMed DELLs) running Suse Enterprise Linux.
