Why Vantage on VMware?

As customers move toward hybrid cloud architectures, Teradata leads the industry by offering choice and consistency with 100% database compatibility across deployment modes. Using the same Vantage software everywhere, Teradata delivers the flexibility to implement a hybrid architecture with a common database that enables shifting of workloads between environments as business needs evolve. TCore-based pricing enables license portability, which means that customers can migrate licenses from one environment to another.

Deploy up to 32 physical servers

Vantage on VMware, formerly known as Teradata Virtual Machine Edition, is an enterprise-grade software offering which can be deployed on up to 32 physical servers with 128 virtual nodes (vnodes). It can be deployed with 3, 4, 5, or 6 physical cores per vnode—corresponding to 6, 8, 10 or 12 virtual cores with hyper-threading enabled. Script-based installation enables spinning up multiple instances of Vantage, even on a single hardware device. Because Vantage on VMware provides multiple version templates, it is ideal for customers who want to do new release or feature testing by running multiple releases side-by-side.

Use case: test and development environments

Vantage on VMware’s script-based deployment on a VMware virtual platform provides an agile and cost-effective option to experiment with physical database design changes, prototype new applications, maintain multiple database versions for testing, and isolate development from production systems.

Use case: production deployment

Vantage on VMware is a massively parallel processing (MPP) option for production use cases when scalability is required. Included are Teradata Data Stream Utility, Teradata QueryGrid, Teradata Server Management, Teradata Viewpoint, and Teradata Workload Management.

Optimal total cost of ownership

Vantage offers a low total cost of ownership (TCO) and a simple, scalable, and self-managing solution for building a successful analytics platform. Its features and functions allow for high levels of performance and efficiency to handle evolving workloads.
