Teradata, a division of NCR Corporation, announced that it has shipped an enhanced version of the Teradata database running on the 64-bit version of the SUSE Linux Enterprise from Novell. It is available globally for enterprise-class data warehouses. Teradata now delivers the same enterprise-class scalability, availability and manageability with the 64-bit SUSE Linux Enterprise operating system, as with the Windows(R) operating system and its own UNIX operating system, UNIX MP-RAS.

"SUSE Linux Enterprise is a key component of Overstock.com's architecture and we're pleased to be able to run it on Teradata's hardware with the Teradata Database," said Jack Garzella, vice president of enterprise data warehouse, reporting and analytics for Overstock.com. "Linux has proven to be a stable production operating system with the performance to meet the demands of our enterprise."

Roger Levy, Novell vice president and general manager of Open Platform Solutions, said, "We are pleased to work closely with Teradata to serve the enterprise data warehouse market. Teradata recently certified SUSE Linux Enterprise Server as the first operating system for their 64-bit platform. We expect Overstock.com running Teradata on SUSE Linux Enterprise will be the first of many joint success stories in this market."

Teradata selected Novell and its SUSE Linux Enterprise platform because it provides a full range of industry-leading Linux services to support large-scale enterprises. Novell provides a scalable and efficient solution for enterprise customers who are considering the move to an open-source operating system.

In addition to making 64-bit SUSE Linux Enterprise available for the database, Teradata already offers tools and utilities products that provide the load and access connectivity to Teradata user applications on both SUSE Linux Enterprise and Red Hat Linux.
