Teradata has announced a set of enhancements for its Vantage product on Google Cloud, designed to make it easier for Teradata customers to use the Google Cloud services they prefer in a consumption pricing model.

The platform enhancements highlight Teradata's commitment to its Google Cloud offering, as well as its commitment to provide Vantage customers with the choice, integration and consistency they need to leverage their modern data platform in the cloud, the company says.

Teradata provides customers with a multi-cloud data platform enabling rich analytics, real-time data intelligence and connection to the familiar business intelligence, artificial intelligence and machine learning services they need to build and operate new applications. 

Software consistency for all Vantage environments means that customers who want to modernise their data analytic ecosystem by migrating workloads and capabilities into Google Cloud can use Teradata Vantage with their preferred Google Cloud tools and services. 

Such capabilities enable customers to perform bespoke enterprise analytics on all available data whether in Vantage, Google Cloud Storage, Dataproc or a myriad of other data stores. 

It's now possible for customers to replace their old processes with native Google Cloud services without disrupting the use of Teradata Vantage as the data analytics engine. Teradata customers often run data workloads at the largest scale across almost all industries and typically require the performance and value that Vantage offers to run a modern data warehouse in the cloud. 

"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. 

"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." 

Barry Russell, SVP business development and GM of cloud at Teradata, adds, "Organisations want access to all of their data regardless of where it lives and must analyse and visualise 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," he says.

"We continue to prioritise 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 modernise their cloud data warehouses."

Subscriptions to Vantage on Google Cloud include the latest Teradata software, Google Cloud compute and storage resources, and environment management. Using Vantage for data analytics means customers can respond quickly to emerging situations while freeing up OpEx and time to focus on more valuable activities. Teradata handles performance, security, availability and operations of a customers analytics infrastructure using Google Cloud resources. 

Integration and Interoperability with First-Party Services on Google Cloud 

Teradata Vantage now includes first-party services integration with Dataflow, a stream/batch data processing service. This augments integration and interoperability of Vantage with over a dozen other Google Cloud services, including:  

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 Looker 

Connectivity to BigQuery and Dataproc 

As companies move more of their data infrastructure to the cloud or even to multiple clouds the number of different data stores and processing engines grows exponentially. Teradata Vantage, as a modern data platform, embraces this approach and is unique in providing choice and consistency throughout the cloud ecosystem. 

With the latest release of Teradata QueryGrid, Vantage customers can connect to, join and seamlessly run queries on data stored in Google Cloud Storage through Google Cloud Dataproc as well as in Google BigQuery via Starburst Enterprise Presto. Giving Teradata customers access to run analytics on all their relevant data, at scale and regardless of where it is stored, makes Vantage an effective platform for leveraging data as an asset.  

Consumption Pricing  

Teradata's Consumption Pricing a usage-based option with automatic elasticity is right for organisations or workloads where its important to tie cost with value. By paying only for compute resources consumed for successful queries plus storage -- businesses choosing this model achieve a risk-free option for experimenting with new analytics because they do not pay for what they do not use.
