Lots of new stuff in the data warehouse appliance space.  Teradata just announced the Teradata Data Warehouse Appliance 2550.  You can read the press release here http://www.teradata.com/t/page/183963/index.html.  Also, there was an article by Mary Hayes Weier in Information Week http://www.informationweek.com/news/business_intelligence/warehouses/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=210602420.  This market continues to get more competitive with the price per terabyte dropping and performance improving.  I wonder what will be introduced at Oracle OpenWorld next week and Teradata Partners in October?
