September 3, 2008 - St.George Bank, widely recognized as having a model installation of a Teradata Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) in the Asia Pacific Region, is leading the way with the first hardware and software implementation of the Teradata 5550 platform and Teradata 12 database in Australia.


The new system consists of a three-node Teradata 5550 platform in addition to a hot standby node running on Linux for the Group Data Warehouse (GDW) production system as well as a minor upgrade to their existing four-node Teradata 5400 platform prior to redeployment as a disaster recovery (DR) system.


The solution also includes a GDW maturity assessment and roadmap consulting engagement to ensure the bank continues to succeed in the field of enterprise data warehousing. This data warehouse upgrade gives St.George Bank increased speed, performance and capacity, which allows the bank to easily manage both planned growth and new business opportunities.


In considering this upgrade, St.George Bank undertook an extensive evaluation process, including a review of alternative data warehouse and appliance vendors, but in the end chose to upgrade with Teradata.


"St.George is the first to implement this hardware and software in South Asia, and we are pleased that the new Teradata data warehouse has exceeded our expectations for speed and performance. It prepares us for the next phase of growth and the next generation of data warehousing. The implementation, put together by our combined St.George and Teradata technical team, continues to be very successful," said Jean-Claude El-Sabbagh, head of enterprise business intelligence for St.George Bank.
