Tervela, Teradata Partner To Move and Distribute Big Data

Messaging specialist Tervela is partnering with analytics database vendor Teradata, to deliver solutions for moving and distributing big data.  The alliance will help customers upload their data into Teradata’s data warehouse for analysis, and will also allow rapid distribution of data across multiple warehouses.

“We are seeing demand for high performance data movement in capital markets and other verticals,” says Ben Gillis, area vice president at Teradata.  Meanwhile, Tervela founder and CTO Barry Thompson says the collaboration began as a marketing and sales partnership: “Teradata customers are looking for ways to speed analytics and decision support, leveraging larger amounts of data generated in real-time.  Our partnership grew out of demand from customers.”

Thompson further elaborates on the application driver in financial markets: “The major driver for this combination is real-time, operational analytics, which are of critical and growing importance in finance.  Risk analysis, position analysis, trading analytics, market data distribution and analytics, tied into operational trading and execution.”

Tervela’s messaging fabric is based on message switch and persistence engine appliances to provide low latency and fault tolerance across both local and wide area networks.  Integrating Tervela and Teradata was straightforward, says Thompson, “involving creating a connection between the well-known APIs of both products.”

Last year, the company announced a partnership with HP unit Vertica.  Thompson notes that Tervela is also working on partnerships with other vendors too.  “There is a lot of activity going on with Tervela in the big data space,” he says.
