Subj:   Re: Linux and Teradata
From:   Jose Lora

Hi all.

I have some free time today.

HP is a leading supplier of commercial UNIX solutions. HP-UX 11i is the latest release of their UNIX operating system.

Today, the industry views Linux to possess RAS (Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability) deficiencies, which prevent it from being used as the foundation for business critical applications such as Data Warehousing. The Open Linux community, with the help of some major system vendors, is taking steps to evolve Linux into an enterprise class operating system. If and when this is accomplished, and the market demands it, Teradata will be made available on Linux.

Teradata's architecture and implementation readily enable porting to other operating systems. Through its single source base and advanced IA64 enabling, Teradata is well positioned to deliver on its Open OS Strategy Linux support by the Teradata Client and Utilities is in development. NCR is continually extending the reach of Teradata by providing seamless client access to and from Teradata from standard and emerging operating environments such as Linux.

Until recently, HP-UX was only available for its own or OEM'd PA-RISC based systems. HP-UX now supports the Intel architecture (IA), effective with Intel's release of the Itanium Processor Family, or IPF (64-bit). HP in fact was co-developer of IPF with Intel Corporation. As such, HP-UX should benefit (e.g. optimization) from HP's intimate knowledge of IPF. HP-UX does not and will not support IA32.

When speaking of or considering an enterprise class UNIX operating system, most industry analysts rank HP's HP-UX, Sun's Solaris and IBM's AIX as the leaders.

In a recent DH Brown report ("HP Renews Focus on UNIX for Web Application Infrastructures", September 2000), HP-UX was rated superior to both Sun Solaris 8 and IBM AIX 4.3.3 in Reliability and Scalability, critical areas for business-critical Data Warehousing.
