JupyterHub

(Comment: The description taken from Teradata Vantage Documentation: https://docs.teradata.com/r/dLArVI09J62c8byzVbHMtw/wkUkrBazpKbulpMlPw_jlg)

JupyterHub is an open-source web application that allows you to create and share documents that contain live code, equations, visualizations, and narrative text using notebooks. Teradata provides SQL extensions for JupyterHub that allow you to do the following:

  • Navigate database objects through a visual user interface

  • Run queries, display result sets, and manage SQL history

  • Run magic commands that enhance the user experience, including a chart magic for visualization and dataload magic for loading data into Teradata Vantage

  • Provides an integrated Teradata parser for SQL syntax checking and context-sensitive code completion

Various sample notebooks allow you to run SQL, Python, or R code and create charts and graphs. Beyond the sample notebooks, you can also create your own SQL, Python, or R notebooks and connect to your own storage container to load data.

Teradata Package for R (tdplyr) and Teradata Package for Python (teradataml) provide access to powerful Vantage analytic functions and provide Vantage in-database analytic capabilities. They combine the benefits of the open source language environment with the massive parallel processing capabilities of Vantage.

To access JupyterHub from the landing page:

  1. Select Master Environment on the landing page.

  2. To open the JupyterHub environment, click JupyterHub.
