PAY AS YOU GO

Pay only for what’s used and never pay for anything that’s not actively being consumed.

GET USAGE TRANSPARENCY

Track usage easily and fairly assign costs by department, which aligns value with use.

ENJOY SOLUTION ELASTICITY

Never again worry about infrastructure or capacity planning, which becomes a Teradata responsibility.

PAY ONLY FOR WHAT’S USED

Compute used for successful customer queries plus storage are the only factors that determine price.

AUTOMATIC SCALING

Resources scale as needed and customers need never forecast user demand or utilization.

PUBLIC CLOUD CHOICE

Choose from either Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure for deployment. Google Cloud available soon.

AS-A-SERVICE BENEFITS

As-a-service benefits span four areas. Performance includes getting the most value from an analytic investment. Security provides peace of mind about privacy and compliance. Availability is having higher uptime, more productive users, and greater business continuity. Operations covers all the daily tasks needed any IT environment, including always being on the latest release.

Vantage Units and Storage Terabytes

Based on Logical IO of a customer-initiated, successful query, a Vantage Unit is the Consumption Pricing metric for compute. Logical IO is defined as all data read from and written to storage (whether disk, SSD/NVMe, or FSG cache) and is measured down to the kilobyte. Only customer-initiated queries that are successfully completed are counted. Storage is pre-purchased in raw terabytes.

COMPARING CAPACITY TO CONSUMPTION

In a traditional Capacity-based model, customers pay for resources available for use whether queries are being run on the system or not. Capacity is a great choice for workloads that have high or very predictable utilization, such as production operational analytics. In contrast, Consumption Pricing is based only on actual usage regardless of the size of the underlying system.

COMMITMENT AND ON-DEMAND OPTIONS

There are two ways to take advantage of Consumption Pricing for Vantage. Commitment is pre-purchased compute and storage usage that an organization draws down over time (e.g., 1 or 3 years). Commitment is best for known or predictable workloads, moderate to high utilization, and budget predictability. On-Demand enables customers to get started with zero upfront payment and zero financial obligation and simply pay monthly in arrears. On-Demand provides the ultimate in flexibility and is recommended for new or uncertain workloads as well as systems that will have a short lifespan.
