Teradata partners with Google Cloud for expanded cloud analytics

Tech Intelligence Bulletin (HG Insights) – Teradata will soon expand its public cloud deployment offerings to include Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

Offering Vantage on GCP means that Teradata manages the performance, security, availability and operations of the enterprise analytic environment using Vantage software and GCP compute and storage infrastructure, so that customers can focus on finding answers to their toughest business challenges.

Powerful cloud analytics

Business leaders are increasingly looking to cloud services to access and use software rather than take on the responsibility, cost and effort involved with owning and maintaining IT infrastructure. Many companies have chosen Google Cloud as their preferred cloud service provider. By partnering with Google Cloud, Teradata offers its customers the powerful analytic capabilities they need in the public cloud environment they prefer.

Best enterprise cloud analytics capabilities

“Teradata is absolutely committed to providing the best enterprise analytic capabilities in the cloud with Vantage software,” said Ashish Yajnik, Vice President of Product Management at Teradata. “We enable companies to start small and elastically scale resources only when needed, and then pay only for what they use. Adding Google Cloud Platform to the global footprint already offered by Teradata will provide customers with unrivaled choice and flexibility with how and where they use Teradata Vantage.”

Enabling digital transformation goals

“Our mission is to help customers supercharge their information and enable them to achieve their digital transformation goals,” said Kevin Ichhpurani, Corporate Vice President, Global Ecosystem at Google Cloud. “Teradata customers want to get as much value out of their data as possible, so we are delighted to partner with Teradata to connect them to Google Cloud to reduce infrastructure costs, enhance cloud security, and scale seamlessly. Google and Teradata will work together to tightly integrate Google Cloud services like AI and Google Cloud Storage into Vantage to bring advanced capabilities to our joint customers.”

Customers interested in using Vantage on GCP can expect a comprehensive as-a-service solution for enterprise analytics that includes software, services, infrastructure and support. Migration from an on-premises system to Google Cloud Platform can be quick and low-risk because Vantage software is consistent from one environment to the next, which greatly simplifies the process.
