Teradata, a name representing connected multi-cloud data platform for enterprise analytics, has enhanced Teradata Vantage on Google Cloud.
The launch of the new platform will allow users to modernize their data analytics ecosystem by migrating their workloads and capabilities into Google Cloud. It will enable users to switch to Teradata Vantage while using Google Cloud tools and services.
Teradata brings a multi-cloud data platform for customers by enabling rich analytics, real-time data intelligence, connection to familiar business intelligence, artificial intelligence, and machine learning services. All of these are needed for building and operating new applications.
“Organizations want access to all of their data, regardless of where it lives, and must analyze and visualize data using cloud services across a consistent data platform. At Teradata, we offer data freedom to our customers so they can use Vantage to enable the apps and services they are building with their favorite Google Cloud capabilities in their DevOps workflows,” said Barry Russell, Senior Vice President of Business Development and General Manager of Cloud at Teradata, in a statement.
He added, “We continue to prioritize cloud-first development across the entire company. Since launching our Google Cloud offering last year, we have been helping numerous customers around the globe migrate and modernize their cloud data warehouses.”
Teradata Vantage includes first-party services integration with Dataflow, a stream or batch of data processing service. It increases the exchange rate of information and integration of Vantage across all the other services being offered by Google Cloud Services that include:
- AI Platform
- Google Cloud Data Fusion
- Google Cloud Data Loss Prevention
- Google Cloud Dataflow
- Google Cloud Dataproc
- Google Cloud Datastore
- Google Cloud Functions
- Google Cloud Interconnect
- Google Cloud Key Management Service
- Google Cloud Marketplace
- Google Cloud Pub/Sub
- Google Cloud Storage
“This evolution of our partnership with Google further demonstrates Teradata’s commitment to providing the best enterprise data analytics in the cloud,” says Noel Pettitt, Vice President, Australia and New Zealand at Teradata.
He added, “This expansion to over a dozen Google Cloud services gives Teradata’s Australian and global customers flexibility that makes migrations to Google Cloud faster with lower risk.”
The company’s new release also includes Teradata QueryGrid and Dataproc. They allow customers to run queries on data stored in Google Cloud Storage through Google Cloud Dataproc and Google BigQuery via Starburst Enterprise Presto.
Teradata offers a Consumption Pricing option wherein it only adds cost in the return of value and not otherwise. It asks only to pay for compute resources consumed for successful queries plus storage. Using this model, the businesses achieve a risk-free option for experimenting with view analytics as they do not have to pay for what they did not use.
