Subj:   ASP.NET, Teradata, web development, NET Data
From:   John H Schuster

I have been doing web development and training using Teradata databases for years. Back when ASP was king then NET 1.0 and now with Net 2.0.

I have found ways around things that were easier to do in other databases so that I could use Teradata.

The version 1.0 of the Teradata NET Data provider has been out for about 1/2 year and I can not find much of anything in searches of the internet about it use or people using it. Typically you will come across messages with people asking for assistance on getting something to work. In my searches I have found very little about NET, ASP.NET, VS2005 with Teradata.

Recently I have heard from an attendee of a TUG meeting that "Nobody does NET web development with Teradata, especially not a web application with transactions".

While my testing of the Teradata NET provider is by no means complete so far it has not been what I had expected.

I am reviewing this provider for a customer who currently uses Oracle for all web sites with the idea the Oracle data is to make its way back to the Teradata DW. Problem is that the data doesn't find its way back and thus starts the creation of data marts where ever data is collected by a web site.

I think that small to medium based NET web application Teradata should be able to collect and report data from the Teradata DW. I don't think that large web applications with tens of thousands of users and millions of hits is a good fit for Teradata.

Is anyone out there using NET, VS2005 with Teradata for web applications? Anyone doing updates?

Thank you.
