Teradata is the global leader in large-scale Linux Data Warehouse and data analytics applications. Teradata’s challenges have always been how to quickly complete a massively parallel system installation from bare metal components. For many years, Teradata has developed its own tools and methodology for the system installation but it has become obvious that we need a different approach to meet our customer’s demand and expectation. We have selected Stacki as Teradata’s tool to help us with bare metal provisioning. This presentation is to show the challenges Teradata faces today and how Teradata uses Stacki to address these challenges.
