Informatica Enables Business Continuity For Teradata Customers

Informatica PowerCenter Dual Load Option Delivers Cost-Effective Mission-Critical Data Integration for Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., September 07, 2010 -  Informatica Corporation (NASDAQ: INFA), the world’s number one independent provider of data integration software, today announced the general availability of Informatica PowerCenter Dual Load Option for Teradata. PowerCenter Dual Load Option delivers mission-critical business continuity for Teradata customers by enabling them to perform parallel data loads reliably into Teradata Dual Active systems with a unique ability to integrate with Teradata Multi-System Manager.

In today’s global information economy customers demand 24x7 access to critical business data and analytics. Without this solution, any system outage or natural disaster could impact the continuous availability of real-time data demanded by Teradata customers in Teradata Dual Active environments. By leveraging Informatica, Teradata users can now be shielded from the effects of such planned and unplanned outages since data will be loaded into multiple Teradata systems simultaneously, thus ensuring the continuous availability of critical business data.

“As the demand for sophisticated analytics and minute-by-minute decision-making intensifies, it has become crucial to manage all aspects of service level agreements for information delivery, including data ‘freshness’ and verifiable lineage,” said Mark Beyer, Research Vice President, Gartner. “Many mission-critical data warehouses are performance constrained or expected to encounter performance issues in the near-term. Organizations are seeking to actively balance data loading processes and ensure data protection in the event of a disaster for business availability of actionable, trustworthy information.”

PowerCenter Dual Load Option for Teradata enables organizations to:

  • Ensure resiliency and reliability of data movement from sources to Teradata Dual Active systems.
  • Maximize the efficiency of data loading across multiple Teradata Active-Active or Active-Passive systems.
  • Centralize operation and administration within the Teradata Multi System Manager.

PowerCenter Dual Load Option for Teradata is generally available now through Informatica and Teradata.
