Teradata Bulk Connections

The Teradata Bulk Connection is used for reading and writing large volumes of data at a high speed to an empty table on a Teradata Database via the Input Data Tool and Output Data Tool. Besides being empty, the target table cannot have defined any secondary indexes. The user must have SELECT and INSERT privileges on the target table, SELECT and INSERT privileges on the error tables, and DROP privileges on the database containing the error tables.

The following Teradata Tools and Utilities must be installed on the computer (the latest version is 14.0, which is the recommended version of these tools).

  • Shared ICU Libraries
  • ODBC Driver for Teradata
  • Teradata GSS Client
  • Teradata Parallel Transporter Base
