Deployment instructions

Vantage on AWS (DIY) Deployment Overview

Teradata ecosystems enable customers to launch multiple Teradata software products simultaneously. Each Teradata ecosystem option links to the AWS CloudFormation console and provides pre-configured templates hosted on Amazon S3 containing the information and configuration options needed to create a new Vantage environment on AWS. Deploy up to 64 instances without the need for additional configuration after launch.

Before using a Teradata ecosystem template, customers must first subscribe to the applicable Teradata software products that the template will launch and configure. The Teradata ecosystem chosen determines the storage type (local or EBS storage) and the database size per node for EBS storage. 

Prerequisite: The IAM user must have permissions for AWS CloudFormation, IAM roles, IAM profiles, and instance profiles. Also, check if AWS service limits need to be increased, particularly for EBS, EC2 instances, and VPC elastic IP address limits.

Step 1: Decide on either Hourly or Annual

  • If Hourly, proceed to Step 2.
  • If Annual, work with your Teradata Account Team (or Contact Us) to have an AWS Marketplace Private Offer created to meet your workload requirements.

Step 2: Determine which Teradata ecosystem you want to deploy.

Step 3: Subscribe to each software product within the Teradata ecosystem.

For the Teradata ecosystem selected, subscribe to each software product within the grouping by clicking on the respective links and following the instruction on each respective AWS Marketplace product page.

Step 4: Return and click to launch the appropriate Teradata ecosystem.

After subscribing to the required software products, return to this page and click below to launch the appropriate Teradata ecosystem. The link will take you to the AWS CloudFormation console for entering configuration parameters, after which the template will create and configure the Teradata ecosystem within an existing VPC.

Notes: Customers cannot launch a Teradata ecosystem directly from the AWS CloudFormation templates on the AWS Marketplace; a Teradata ecosystem must be launched from this page. Customers cannot add or remove software products from a Teradata ecosystem. If the Teradata ecosystem does not include all the software products desired, customers can launch instances for those products separately, which may require additional configuration after launch.

It’s easy to deploy Vantage on AWS (DIY) in your own AWS VPC.
