My main objective is to transfer data from teradata to hadoop. TPT is the fastest way of doing this (eventhough i have confusion between TDCH and TPT which one to go for). TPT 15.0 onwards supports direct export to hdfs as i read in one of the documentation and also on one of the forums. But i have teradata version 14.10 installed and my question is that can i upgrade only TPT to 15.0 and use that to export data from Teradata version 14.10 to HDFS.?
