Teradata Launches New Secure Managed Cloud Offering

Teradata is launching Teradata IntelliCloud, its next generation secure managed cloud offering that provides data and analytic software as a service (SaaS).

IntelliCloud ensures software consistency while increasing business agility and boosting focus on data-driven analytic insights that have meaningful business outcomes.

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

IntelliCloud was designed to support  a modern hybrid approach with comprehensive subscription services aligned to customer priorities.

“Teradata is the only company to address these needs with simple, packaged solutions that combine leading data and analytic software as a service with unprecedented deployment choice and flexibility,” said Oliver Ratzesberger, executive vice president and chief product officer for Teradata. “Ultimately, IntelliCloud frees our customers to focus on how analytic insight can move the needle for their company. We believe this is part of why Teradata recently achieved the highest position for its completeness of vision in Gartner’s Data Management Solutions for Analytics Magic Quadrant.”

Services are designed to be simple and complete. Features 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; service availability 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 a web-based management console for monitoring system utilization, scheduling back-ups, setting or modifying security parameters, spinning up additional cloud resources, and more.
