Cloud data analytics company, Teradata announced that its as-a-service data and analytics platform Teradata Vantage is now available on Google Cloud.
This makes the company the only data warehouse and analytics company to provide software across on-premises, hybrid and multicloud environments on the world’s top three public cloud vendors: AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.
“Organisations need to drive real value from their data, and we are delighted to partner with Teradata to help them do so,” said Kevin Ichhpurani, Corporate Vice President at Google Cloud’s Global Ecosystem Unit.
The as-a-service offering provides access to Vantage, a powerful data and analytics platform that unifies analytics, data lakes and data warehouses, using increasingly popular Google Cloud resources.
“Bringing Teradata Vantage to Google Cloud provides our joint customers with a seamless path to hybrid cloud data storage and analytics, leveraging global, scalable infrastructure as well as Google Cloud’s differentiated capabilities in AI/ML,” added Mr. Ichhpurani.
Designed with cloud-first functions in mind, Teradata Vantage offers five functions to Teradata and Google Cloud customers. First, the ability to support up to 128 virtual machines with a guaranteed 99.9% service-level agreement.
Next, first party service integration where users can join with and query data in Google Cloud Storage, Persistent Disk, and Dataproc, as well as integrate with preferred data pipeline, business intelligence, and visualisation tools.
Thirdly, Google Cloud’s Live Migration to mitigate the impact of both planned and unplanned maintenance by migrating running instances to new ones instead of requiring them to be rebooted, soothing business interruptions.
Fourthly, separation of compute and storage coupled with simple point-and-click elasticity, independent resource scaling, enabling Vantage on Google Cloud to more efficiently match customer workload demands.
And lastly, Vantage software consistency where customers can re-use previous Teradata investments and eliminate recoding when migrating from on-premises to Google Cloud to potentially save money and reduce risk.
“Teradata is committed to providing the best enterprise data analytics in the cloud. For us, this means offering our customers modern data analytics, but also flexibility with deployment options that don’t limit choice or lock them in,” said Hillary Ashton, Chief Product Officer at Teradata.
Vantage on Google Cloud provides near real-time data analytics with multi-dimensional scalability and concurrency, while workload management on Vantage offers unrestricted data analytics that does not require knowledge about where a particular dataset resides.
“Every company’s cloud strategy is different: for customers interested in cloud data analytics offerings using Google Cloud, Teradata is the only partner to meet their needs today, as well as tomorrow as their needs evolve,” added Ms. Ashton.
