With the cost of licensing and the requirement for more memory when upgrading to R5.1, isn't it more likely that Teradata was going to take a significant benchmarking loss against DB2?
I think that the following quote from the Forester Report deserves more attention than Teradata's excuse about the artificial nature of benchmarking:
"Long the highest-powered - and highest-priced - player in large-scale data warehousing, the vendor leaves the field while it is 31% ahead of the nearest competitor, IBM, in the composite power and throughput metric (QphH). Teradata is tied with IBM for price/performance at $243 and it lags by 30.8% in the pure price category at the 10 TB volume point."
