Teradata announced three new offerings for its Teradata Vantage platform, reflecting Teradata’s commitment to offering as-a-service capabilities to meet the needs of their customers. These capabilities provide choice and flexibility for customers operating on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, private cloud or hybrid cloud environments.
The New Offerings include
- (1) adding AWS Marketplace as a channel for consuming Teradata software on an as-a-service basis
- (2) introducing a turnkey on-premises offer which provides key cloud benefits while remaining within customers’ data centers
- (3) driving a new hybrid cloud disaster recovery service to complement a firm’s physical infrastructure with an on-demand secondary system in the cloud. By leveraging automation and Teradata’s unique expertise in managing complex analytic environments at scale, organizations can focus instead on finding answers to their toughest business challenges.
Teradata addresses these requirements and more as each new as-a-service offering extends the value and application of Vantage, Teradata’s flagship platform that was designed to simplify analytic ecosystems and de-risk decision-making, even at scale. In addition to providing access to 100 percent of an organization’s information, Vantage consolidates analytic silos into a single platform. The location of the data or workloads is not a deterrent since the same Vantage software runs on every deployment option.
“Vantage has already been picked up by customers faster than any other product in Teradata’s history,” said Reema Poddar, Chief Product Officer at Teradata. “We’re enormously proud of that, and we also understand that many of our users would prefer to have as-a-service options for Vantage. We have delivered that capability and today we are extending it to ensure all of Teradata’s customers, regardless of where they stand in their cloud or analytic journey, have an as-a-service offering to choose from. Teradata Vantage is tailor-made to help enterprises get the most return from their investments and focus on what truly matters: getting answers through real-time intelligence, not managing IT infrastructure.”
Now available as-a-service on AWS, Microsoft Azure, Teradata Cloud and on-premises, Teradata Vantage empowers firms to consume the company’s market-leading analytic capabilities any way they prefer, in the environment they prefer. This choice and flexibility is highly supportive of a hybrid cloud environment and ensures that Teradata customers aren’t held back from, or forced into, decisions about when and how to leverage the cloud in conjunction with their on-premises analytic ecosystems.
Once an as-a-service subscription has been activated, users can spin up Vantage’s capabilities rapidly, accelerating time-to-value with the ability to scale up or down quickly on a self-service basis as business requirements change. Teradata monitors and manages the infrastructure, guarantees system availability and offers the lowest cost per query at scale of any analytics platform on the market today.
As-a-service offerings for Vantage are now available via AWS Marketplace in most AWS Regions globally.
Vantage is also now available as-a-service for on-premises customers with substantial data ecosystems and investments.
As-a-service options for Vantage can also be purchased directly through Teradata using AWS, Azure or Teradata infrastructure.
