In November of last year, NCR announced (with appropriate fanfare) that the combination of its Teradata RDBMS and WorldMark 5150 server set a new TPC-D benchmark at the one "terriblebyte" level along with a low-low price/performance ratio of $2,100. These figures are substantially better than those published by other competitors, and they were achieved by running five concurrent streams, a multi-use capability that only Teradata has accomplished in any published TPC-D.
Of course, all us savants know (wink, wink) that benchmarks s--k and have no relation to the real world of computing, but those are really impressive numbers. Must be a pony in there somewhere.
