Teradata Launches IntelliCloud Integrates Analytics, SaaS with Expanded Deployment Choice

New packaged service expands hybrid cloud options, giving businesses more choice, greater dexterity, and an increased focus on applying their analytic insights 

Teradata announces new Teradata IntelliCloud – a next generation secure managed cloud offering that provides data and analytic software as a service (SaaS).

TeradataThe new solution is available with new deployment choices including Teradata IntelliFlex, the company’s flagship enterprise data warehouse platform that Teradata will deploy and manages in its own data centers, and global public cloud infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) and later, from Microsoft Azure.

By leveraging the same software, training, tools and ecosystem applications in which Teradata customers have already invested for their on-premise systems, IntelliCloud ensures 100% software consistency while increasing business agility and boosting focus on data-driven analytic insights that have meaningful business outcomes.

“Demand for cloud services increases daily. In fact, by 2020, 90 percent of our customers expect to have a hybrid cloud environment – and more than 85 percent expect to buy ‘as a service’ for data warehousing,” said Oliver Ratzesberger, executive vice president and chief product officer for Teradata.

“There is a strong shift towards the adoption of hybrid cloud environments in India. With the growing pace of technology change and innovation, businesses are increasingly looking for solutions that meet their advanced data analytics needs while at the same time optimizing their existing resources and allowing for speed and flexibility. We are excited to announce availability of innovative solutions like Teradata IntelliCloud that will enable Indian businesses to derive more value in this data-driven world,” said Sunil Jose, Managing Director, Teradata India.

Provided on a subscription basis with monthly, annual, and 3-year options, IntelliCloud offerings enable customers to focus on analytic insight and not worry about setting up or running the underlying software or infrastructure. Services are designed to be simple and complete; initial capabilities include:

  • Choice of Teradata Database, Teradata Aster Analytics, or Hadoop software from Cloudera or Hortonworks;
  • Bundled infrastructure services including platform deployment and management, onboarding and provisioning assistance, system monitoring and maintenance, patches and software upgrades, encryption of data in motion and at rest, enterprise-class security, and premier cloud support;
  • Deployment options spanning IntelliFlex and Teradata appliances in Teradata data centers plus AWS public cloud infrastructure – to be followed later this year by Microsoft Azure and eventually on-premises;
  • Service availability guarantee of 99.9% for infrastructure managed in Teradata data centers; and
  • Analytic ecosystem applications including Teradata QueryGrid, Teradata AppCenter, Demand Chain Management, Industry Data Models, and more.

Customers will control their IntelliCloud accounts with an easy-to-use, web-based management console for monitoring system utilization, scheduling back-ups, setting or modifying security parameters, spinning up additional cloud resources, and more.

Teradata IntelliCloud supports the same enterprise use cases and workloads that are available with Teradata on-premises systems, though with the advantages of subscription pricing in a software-as-a-service model. Common use cases for companies running their analytic ecosystem entirely in IntelliCloud are production, test and development, and quality assurance. Hybrid cloud use cases for IntelliCloud customers also employing a Teradata on-premises system include cloud disaster recovery, cloud bursting, and cloud data marts and data labs.

Teradata IntelliCloud customers access the service through a secure network connection, either internet-based or dedicated. IntelliCloud services will be available during Q1 2017 initially from select U.S.-based AWS regions as well as on IntelliFlex and other platforms in U.S. Teradata data centers. Deployment options will continue to expand in future quarters to include international public cloud regions from AWS and Azure, Teradata global data centers, and eventually on-premises deployments.
