Yea verily, that's what I'd like to see!

But you know, I think that any response Teradata makes to the competition would be a good thing. I think it's interesting that Inmon thinks that the old, real hardware AMP architecture might have had a longer useful life. I mean, one of the main ideas behind Teradata was that it ran on off-the-shelf hardware (Intel chips and standard stuff like that), then on more standard software (Unix and Windows/2000), using standard interfaces (ODBC, OLE), so performance just got better and better.

How many times have we seen people wishing out loud about getting to a 64 bit Unix or Linux, or using some other tools, etc. Yes, I know, we've endured hearing other vendors say they could out-perform Teradata with all kinds of claims. So we wait for the TPC numbers and it's just marketing hype and heavily altered results. But I think it's good that someone in the industry is coming up with new ideas (or maybe, reusing old ideas. Hey, I started on the 3600), instead of trying to bolt on VLDB capability onto an ancient codebase. If it's not just hype, it's cool!
