St George Bank has upgraded its enterprise data warehouse with Teradata 5550 platform and Teradata 12 database.

According to Teradata, a provider of enterprise data warehousing and analytic technologies, the new system consists of a three-node Teradata 5550 platform in addition to a standby node running on Linux for the group data warehouse (GDW) production system as well as a minor upgrade to its existing four-node Teradata 5400 platform prior to redeployment as a disaster recovery system. The solution also includes a GDW maturity assessment and roadmap consulting engagement.

Jean-Claude El-Sabbagh, head of enterprise business intelligence at St George Bank, said: 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.
