Good news! Teradata Database, the market’s leading data warehousing and analytic solution, is now available for deployment on Microsoft Azure via the Azure Marketplace.
As previously announced, Teradata Database on Azure is offered on a variety of multi-terabyte Virtual Machines (VMs) in supported Azure regions. We’ve been working very hard across the company to make this launch a reality – and it’s rewarding to be part of an exciting new chapter in our hybrid cloud evolution.
To be clear, there is a strong shift toward the adoption of hybrid cloud, which more than 90 percent of Teradata customers surveyed in 2016 plan to employ by 2020. By blending on-premises and cloud-based deployment in a hybrid and cohesive environment, customers can focus on what matters to them: creating business value.
I believe Teradata software on Azure is significant because it represents yet another new hybrid cloud deployment option for Teradata Database, which has long been the industry’s most respected engine for production analytics.
Indeed, Gartner’s most recent Magic Quadrant for Data Management Solutions for Analytics shows Teradata as a Leader and the one vendor with the highest position for Completeness of Vision.
Furthermore, as highlighted in Gartner’s Critical Capabilities for Data Management Solutions for Analytics, “Teradata received the top score in all four of our defined use cases, demonstrating a mature product with market-leading depth and breadth of functionality.”
This is a big deal and one of many recent accolades that highlight the fact that here is simply no substitute for the wisdom and insight gained through experience.
By incorporating Azure as a strategic public cloud deployment option for Teradata Database, we make it easier for companies of all sizes to become data-driven with best-in-class data warehousing and analytics. Subscribers can be up and running with an entire Teradata ecosystem in about an hour.
