Subj:   Re: MP-RAS and LINUX Question
From:   DWellman

Hi Jim,

The 'official line' from Teradata is that "Teradata (the DBMS) is always Teradata". From an application perspective the underlying OS is irrelevant, you're just issuing SQL commands to the DBMS and not the OS.

As an ISV, I've run concurrent development against MP-RAS, Linux and Windows for a number of years without any problems due to the OS differences at all.

I don't believe that the OS itself will make any difference to your app's. I think that the worst case scenario for you is that you hit a problem on prod (MP-RAS) and although Teradata may have a patch available for it, you cannot test that before putting it on to Prod (because your dev/test systems are all Linux). That may or may not be an issue for you.

As I said, from my experience you won't have an issue with this set up.
