Grazed from Teradata
Teradata, a leading analytics solutions company, today announced Teradata IntelliCloud, its next generation secure managed cloud offering that provides data and analytic software as a service (SaaS). 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. By leveraging the same software, training, tools and ecosystem applications in which Teradata customers have already invested for their on-premises systems, IntelliCloud ensures 100% software consistency while increasing business agility and boosting focus on data-driven analytic insights that have meaningful business outcomes.
Customers will control their IntelliCloud accounts with an easy-to-use, web-based management console for monitoring system utilization, scheduling back-ups, setting or modifying security parameters, spinning up additional cloud resources, and more.
Teradata has invested in rigorous third party audits of its managed cloud offerings in order to demonstrate compliance with security regulations and industry best practices such as ISO 27001 and SOC 2 and most recently SOC 1, PCI and HIPAA. Details about IntelliCloud security and the most recent compliance audits are available here.
Teradata IntelliCloud supports the same enterprise use cases and workloads that are available with Teradata on-premises systems, though with the advantages of subscription pricing in a software-as-a-service model. Common use cases for companies running their analytic ecosystem entirely in IntelliCloud are production, test and development, and quality assurance. Hybrid cloud use cases for IntelliCloud customers also employing a Teradata on-premises system include cloud disaster recovery, cloud bursting, and cloud data marts and data labs.
Teradata IntelliCloud customers access the service through a secure network connection, either internet-based or dedicated. IntelliCloud services will be available during Q1 2017 initially from select U.S.-based AWS regions as well as on IntelliFlex and other platforms in U.S. Teradata data centers. Deployment options will continue to expand in future quarters to include international public cloud regions from AWS and Azure, Teradata global data centers, and eventually on-premises deployments.
