I have a basic question - Why does Teradata Express come only as a VM component? Why not as a standalone software to be installed on physical desktop?
Is it because the internal AMP-VPROC architecture or anything else?
Is your physical desktop running Suse Linux Enterprise?
Most PCs got a Windows operating system and there's no (more) Teradata for Windows.
Additionally it's more convenient to simply start a VM.
That answers. Thanks! I was not aware that Teradata is not available for Windows.
So what if we have a requirement for handshaking between a MSBI stack and Teradata? Say, TD needs to read files from SSIS or SSAS kept in Windows file system. How am I going to handle it?
you simply install the Teradata Client for Windows: TTU - Windows Install
