Query data stored in object storage

Native Object Storage (NOS) is a Vantage feature that allows you to query data stored in files in object storage such as AWS S3, Google GCS, Azure Blob or on-prem implementations. It’s useful in scenarios where you want to explore data without building a data pipeline to bring it into Vantage.


Run large bulkloads efficiently with Teradata Parallel Transporter (TPT)

We often have a need to move large volumes of data into Vantage. Teradata offers Teradata Parallel Transporter (TPT) utility that can efficiently load large amounts of data into Teradata Vantage. This how-to demonstrates how to use TPT. In this scenario, we will load over 300k records, over 40MB of data, in a couple of seconds.

Train ML models in Vantage

There are situations when you want to quickly validate a machine learning model idea. You have a model type in mind. You don’t want to operationalize with an ML pipeline just yet. You just want to test out if the relationship you had in mind exists. Also, sometimes even your production deployment doesn’t require constant relearning with MLops. In such cases, you can use Vantage Analytics Library (VAL) and multiple ML model types it supports.
