Teradata will be launching a technology called QueryGrid in the third quarter. The new product allows customers to run a single SQL-based query across a range of data stores, from Teradata’s own data warehouses to Hadoop and rival databases.
The company will be making product announcements at the Teradata conference this week. Scott Gnau, the president of Teradata Labs, believes that QueryGrid will be a part of the next generation data architecture. He said, “we want to take analytics and then extend it to things like Web log data with queries in one workflow.”
