Cloud Analytics


Proven cloud solutions built and priced to scale


If you’re in business – big-scale, forward-motion sort of business – you’re already in the cloud. You have data, and you want to apply it to drive business opportunity. Teradata Vantage delivers a powerful, modern analytics cloud architecture that unifies Analytics, Data Lakes, and Data Warehouses. If you’re already in the cloud, Vantage can flexibly scale to meet the challenge of your growth – and you can pay-as-you-go for maximum flexibility. Whether you’re migrating to the cloud, have a hybrid infrastructure, or you’re already fully committed, Teradata can help you move from cloud analytics to answers.

Why Cloud?

It’s a fact: if you’re in an enterprise-level business, the cloud isn’t optional—the cloud IS business. Information technology is being reshaped to take advantage of new standards of speed, storage, and limitless scale. With the cloud offering greater flexibility, massive (and low-cost) storage, more expansive service capabilities, it’s easy to understand the cloud’s massive growth.

Business and Technical Drivers


Cloud eliminates the need to buy expensive infrastructure and offers pay-as-you-go pricing that provides greater cost control. You can choose to only pay for what you use.

Faster Time-to-Value

Procuring, deploying, and provisioning IT infrastructure is a time-consuming process – but cloud can literally cut months into minutes.


Technology available for data cloud solutions evolved quickly and is now enterprise-ready, capable of supporting production workloads.

Agility, Flexibility

Fast provisioning, elastic computing power, and massively scalable storage provide a level of freedom not often found in traditional solutions.

Technology Advancements

Data cloud capabilities have advanced to address the needs of demanding customers. Speed, integration, and security are at the highest levels.

Subscription Model

Teradata offers many data cloud services in a cash-flow-friendly subscription model, providing the same Vantage software across all deployment options.

Recommended First Use Cases

More and more analytic ecosystems are making their way into the cloud. Scenarios where the elasticity provided by cloud deployment is quite advantageous include test and development systems as well as data labs. These use cases share the characteristic of being needed for a short time and then no longer needed for awhile.

Cloud for Test and Development

In many organizations, the capacity of test and development systems is often under-utilized - but when activity picks up, capacity can be under-sized. This paradox can be addressed with cloud deployment. The flexibility to allocate exactly the resources you need for testing and/or development, then turn around and de-allocate just as quickly is very powerful. An added advantage for test and development is the ability to use the latest versions of software for feature exploitation and/or validation before the software is ready to be deployed in a highly governed on-premises environment.

Cloud for Data Labs

In data lab deployment, cloud implementation has two big advantages. First, scalability in cloud provides the perfect working model for users who cannot necessarily anticipate resources needed for working with the next new data set or algorithm. The second advantage of cloud deployment for data science work is agility. Internal process and timeframes for bringing in a new piece of software on-premises can slow down data discovery. In a cloud data lab environment, the desired tools are more easily accessible, even without going through a maze of IT governance and standards committees.

Hadoop Migration Program from Teradata

Teradata can rapidly and easily migrate existing higher-value Hadoop data and processes to Teradata Vantage and lower-value data to low-cost object storage in the cloud. See how it’s done.

More Ways to Deploy

There are many ways to deploy and consume Vantage in the cloud, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). In addition to these options, choose from the Teradata infrastructure (Teradata Cloud and Customer Cloud), and customer hardware with VMware virtualization software.
