The basic building block of Teradata Managed Cloud is called a Cloud Compute Unit (CCU). A CCU consists of bare-metal hardware, storage, database software, and system management utilities specifically engineered for cloud computing. The advantage of bare-metal resources is that there is no reduction in speed or performance due to the overhead of virtualization software. Each customer receives dedicated, private CCUs that are securely and physically segregated from other customers with absolutely no sharing.
The default method for connecting to Teradata Managed Cloud is a site-to-site VPN (Virtual Private Network) from your data center. This access method uses IPsec communication to keep data transmissions secure and provides network access – through the Internet – with bandwidth of up to 100 Mbps. If a larger and dedicated network port is required, there are enhanced options for 1 Gbps or 10 Gbps direct connections.
By default, Teradata Managed Cloud customer data is backed up daily. Backups are retained for two days at the primary data center and are automatically replicated to a remote data center within the same country. Customers have the option to change the backup frequency to occur on a weekly or monthly basis and can also purchase encrypted backups.
Hybrid Row and Columnar
Teradata Columnar is included with each CCU. Teradata Columnar is a hybrid row and column database that fully integrates columnar and row-based tables, establishing new levels of flexibility, performance, and compression and strengthening your data warehouse and analytics capabilities.
Teradata has set special, discounted pricing for Teradata Managed Cloud systems designated as “passive”. Passive System CCUs are for standby use – i.e., the system does not have active users and is accessed only if there is a production system outage. See the Cloud FAQ for more information.
Teradata Managed Cloud can be enhanced with QueryGrid, an optional feature that lets your business work with a seamless data fabric across all of your data and analytical engines. Users get the most value out of all their data by taking advantage of specialized processing resources operating as a cohesive analytic environment.
Teradata Managed Cloud offers temporal capability, an optional feature that enables the time dimension to be added to data management and query processing. Temporal lets the data warehouse track not just transactions over time, but also how data and the business evolve over time.
Data Lab (Optional)
Teradata Data Lab is an optional dedicated workspace (sandbox) within a production data warehouse where users have the freedom to explore, analyze new data, and test theories. Data labs enable self-service business intelligence and analytics by simplifying provisioning and automating the management of the analytic workspace so there is no risk to production data or to warehouse performance.
Complete hardware and software support is provided by the Teradata Cloud Operations team. This group also performs activities such as provisioning, onboarding, and software patching while continually monitoring and administering the CCU environment. The Teradata Cloud Operations team does not have visibility or access to customers’ data.
