DAYTON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 9, 2003--Teradata, a division of NCR Corporation, announced that Teradata® V2R5.0, the newest version of its flagship database and a component of Teradata Warehouse 7.0, outperformed the most recently published IBM ten-terabyte and Oracle/ Hewlett Packard three-terabyte Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC-H) industry benchmark results.

At the three-terabyte performance volume level, the Teradata database topped Oracle9i release 2/Hewlett Packard by 194 percent. Teradata price/performance was the same as Oracle at the three-terabyte level.

At the ten-terabyte volume level, Teradata surpassed IBM DB2 UDB 8.1 performance by 31 percent and the price/performance results were identical.

TPC-H is a decision-support benchmark developed by the Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC), an independent benchmark auditing organization, to measure how well databases perform decision-support workloads with multiple, concurrent users submitting complex business queries.
