Teradata expands customer choice in Hybrid Cloud Solutions with Teradata database on Microsoft Azure

Updated: Jan 12, 2017 10:45 IST

New Delhi [India], Jan 12 (ANI): Leading analytics solutions company Teradata on Thursday announced imminent availability of Teradata Database on Azure providing customers more choice of cloud options for Teradata software.

By combining Teradata's industry-leading data warehouse software with the agility and elasticity of Azure public cloud services, customers can focus on driving business value rather than installing and maintaining physical infrastructure.

As per Teradata's recent Data Warehouse Survey one, more than 90 percent of Teradata customers will employ a hybrid environment by 2020 consisting of a mix of on-premises and cloud resources.

The same survey indicated that 85 percent of Teradata customers want to consume at least some of their analytics "as a service." As businesses increasingly look to the cloud to drive competitive advantages, they have a need for greater agility, but also a mandate to lower financial and time commitments.

These requirements are met in Teradata's Hybrid Cloud Solutions, which provide flexibility in deployment for increased responsiveness, ensure high levels of security, data privacy, and regulatory compliance, enable optimization of workloads across deployment modes, facilitate easier management of multiple environments and lower risk through the re-use of existing tools, capabilities and training.

"The Teradata Database on Azure combines Teradata's industry-leading data warehouse software with the agility and flexibility of Microsoft Azure infrastructure. The solution will offer self-service, under-an-hour provisioning, pay-as-you-go, and integration with a wide variety of Azure and Teradata software tools," said MD Teradata India, Sunil Jose.

"Our partnership with Microsoft Azure will therefore make Teradata as borderless, or hybrid, as possible," added Jose.

"The most successful vendors in the hybrid cloud space will offer broad, cross-platform support that empowers companies to use the cloud when and where it makes sense, as much or as little as they want," said VP and Principal Analyst at Constellation Research, Doug Henschen.

"These companies come to see hybrid deployment as invaluable to their respective data warehousing strategies and are investigating additional use cases, including data exploration and predictive analysis in the cloud," added Doug Henschen.

The solution's powerful performance, reliability and convenience features include MPP (massively parallel processing) multi-node scalability from one to 32 nodes, automatic node failure recovery to ensure customers are up again quickly, and backup to (and query of data within) Azure Blob storage for easy integration.
