teradata_logo_miTeradata Corp. (NYSE: TDC), the big data analytics and marketing applications company, announced today it is making its Teradata Database, a leading data warehousing and analytic solution, available for cloud deployment on AWS to support production workloads. The initial version of Teradata Database on AWS will be offered on a variety of individual multi-terabyte virtual servers–known as Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) instances–in supported AWS regions via a listing in the AWS Marketplace.

Today, Teradata is adding more innovation by coupling data warehousing capabilities with public cloud convenience,” said Tony Cosentino, Vice President and Research Director at Ventana Research, a leading benchmark research and advisory services firm. “No longer is cutting-edge technology the sole domain of the upper echelon of the corporate community; soon virtually any organization on the planet can tap into – and trust – the power of Teradata.”

AWS is the leading cloud service provider and has a global footprint with more than one million active customers in 190 countries. With Teradata Database on AWS, supported use cases include test and development, quality assurance, data marts, disaster recovery, and production analytics. The primary benefits to customers include:

  • Wider accessibility to the market’s leading data warehouse and analytic solution
  • Closer proximity of the database to data sources and partner software in the cloud
  • Easier scalability with self-service provisioning and hourly pay-as-you-go convenience

This is a watershed announcement for Teradata because it illustrates a fundamentally new deployment option for what has long been the industry’s most respected engine for production analytics,” said Chris Twogood, Vice President of Product and Services Marketing at Teradata. “In terms of convenience, security, performance, and market adoption, cloud computing has proven its value. By incorporating AWS as the first public cloud offering for deploying a production Teradata Database, we will make it easier for companies of all sizes to become data-driven with best-in-class data warehousing and analytics.”

Twogood said that a growing number of existing and prospective customers want a hybrid mixture of deployment options – with some resources maintained physically on-premises and other services delivered virtually via the cloud. Representing Teradata’s initial version of Teradata Database for public cloud deployment, Teradata Database on AWS will expand the range of choices for companies to extract the greatest analytical insights for their organizations:

  • On-premises integrated data warehouse: Teradata Platforms and Appliances
  • Purpose-built managed environment: Teradata Cloud
  • Self-service public cloud: Teradata Database on AWS
  • Hybrid approach using a combination of the above

Additionally, Teradata Production and Advisory Services, delivered by a deep bench of industry and analytic experts within Teradata Professional Services, are available to assist new and existing customers with provisioning, integration, management, and fine tuning of Teradata Database across all deployment options.


The initial version of Teradata Database on AWS will be available in Q1 2016 for global deployment. It will be offered on a variety of individual multi-terabyte Amazon EC2 instance types via a listing in the AWS Marketplace. EC2 is a web-based service that allows business subscribers to run application programs in the Amazon computing environment and pay only for capacity that is actually used. Customers will have the ability to deploy standalone on AWS or can complement both on-premises and Teradata Cloud environments.
