Subj:   Re: Myth or Reality - Database Corruption
From:   James LeBlanc

Hi Norm:

First of all, it is great hearing from you again!

During my three year tenure with NCR, I was an employee. That was the first time and last time in close to 20 years I was an employee of any company other than my own. You might like my current corporate handle of "Data Warehouse Systems, Inc.". I even have corporate t- shirts and hats :-)

Glad to hear you are at Bell South, at least you are close to home.

Meanwhile I have a client who is correctly considering using Teradata in a very active data warehouse situation. The architect is concerned with data integrity. The normal response from NCR/Teradata is that with Teradata the subject of data corruption is a myth. His position is that if he believes this, then he will have to bet his job on it. Otherwise he needs to have serious backup and recovery plans in place.

Norm, what do you think, would you take that bet?
