Subj:   Linux and Teradata
 
From:   Charles Farley

HI all-

This may be getting to be a tiresome thread for some, but I am still curious (and I have more questions)....

I wanted to ask if any headway has been made on the ODBC drivers for Teradata on Linux. I know that Dean Arnold has put together an excellent JDBC driver and a great perl module, but I still want to get ODBC straight from my Linux box. This is even more pressing as we are experimenting with Linux on our S/390 IBM frame (this an amazing way of using Linux, especially under VM), and I'd like to get some applications ODBC connectivity from here (my reasoning for not using the JDBC-ODBC bridge is that it seems to be slow, the same seems true for the JDBC driver).

Now, for my next query, I'm curious as to what NCR is thinking of for it's OS after MP-RAS is retired. Irealize that MP-RAS will be around for a while, but I would like to put forth that Linux is an excellent choice here. The usability and extensibility(?) of the OS is excellent, and I think the integration of the NCR components would make Linux that much more of an industrial strength OS (I personally favor *BSD, myself).

Just curious as to where we are going in this area, I hope I'm not too far off topic, I know most of the posts here relate to the DBMS, but I think this really has a lot of relevance to that topic as well.

BTW, if you are curious, the Linux on S/390 projects are everywhere, but a good place to start looking around is at ibm.com, from there, you can find a wealth of information on the projects and distros. Imagine being able to have a few thousand full scale Linux servers in less than a hundred square feet of floor space, sound interesting?


Thanks for any help and answers,

loadc
