Getting Started: Buy and Using Teradata Software on AWS Marketplace

There are two paths you may follow for buying Teradata software and then deploying it via AWS Marketplace:

Marketplace: Hourly (On-Demand) Consumption

  • For maximum flexibility with zero commitment, choose AWS Marketplace, the AWS online store that helps business customers find, buy, and immediately start using the software. Follow our “Marketplace Instructions” below to subscribe and deploy on your own. This is the recommended path for hourly (on-demand) consumption; AWS handles billing and payments, and software charges appear on your AWS bill. 

BYOL: 1-Year or 3-Year Commitment

  • For greater discounts and/or custom offers that include other Teradata deliverables, work with your Teradata Account Team to purchase a BYOL (Bring Your Own License) software subscription. Follow our "BYOL Instructions" below to purchase from Teradata and then subscribe and deploy on your own via special BYOL listings on AWS Marketplace. Most organizations that already use Teradata analytics or are engaged with a Teradata account team will prefer this option.

With either option, Teradata is here to help you. Engage with Teradata Services for assistance in architecting and deploying Teradata software on AWS. Customers seeking our expertise yet wanting to manage the environment themselves will appreciate the benefits of this approach. Reach out to your Teradata Account Executive or Contact Us to start the discussion.

 

Marketplace Instructions

This section pertains to scenarios in which you both purchase and deploy Teradata software through AWS Marketplace. This is the recommended path for hourly (on-demand) consumption. See the BYOL section for details pertaining to that option.

Following the steps below, Teradata ecosystems enable you to launch multiple Teradata software products simultaneously on AWS. Each Teradata ecosystem option links to the AWS CloudFormation console and enables you to use pre-configured templates hosted on Amazon S3 containing the information and configuration options needed to create a new Teradata environment on AWS.

Before using a Teradata ecosystem template you must first subscribe to the applicable Teradata software products that the template will launch and configure. The Teradata ecosystem you choose determines the storage type (local storage or EBS storage) and the database size per node for EBS storage. You can deploy instances for a 1- to 64-node Teradata Database system without the need for additional configuration after launch.

Prerequisite: The Identity and Access Management (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: Determine which Teradata ecosystem you want to deploy:

Step 2: For the Teradata ecosystem you’ve 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 3: After subscribing to the required software products, return to this page and click below to launch the appropriate Teradata ecosystem within an existing Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). The link will take you to the AWS CloudFormation console where you will be asked to enter your desired configuration parameters. After all configuration parameters are entered, the template will create and configure your Teradata ecosystem within an existing Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).

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

 

BYOL Instructions

This section pertains to scenarios is which you purchase a software license from Teradata and then apply that entitlement to deployments in AWS Marketplace. Known as Bring Your Own License (BYOL), this is the recommended path for 1-year or 3-year subscriptions; reach out to your Teradata Account Executive or Contact Us to start the licensing discussion.

Following the steps below, Teradata BYOL ecosystems enable you to launch multiple Teradata software products simultaneously on AWS. Each Teradata BYOL ecosystem option links to the AWS CloudFormation console and enables you to use pre-configured templates hosted on Amazon S3 containing the information and configuration options needed to create a new Teradata environment on AWS.

Before using a Teradata BYOL ecosystem template you must first purchase a software license from Teradata and then subscribe to the applicable Teradata software products that the template will launch and configure. The Teradata BYOL ecosystem you choose determines the storage type (local storage or EBS storage) and the database size per node for EBS storage. You can deploy instances for a 1- to 64-node Teradata Database system without the need for additional configuration after launch.

Prerequisite: The Identity and Access Management (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: Work with your Teradata Account Team (or Contact Us) to purchase a Teradata Database BYOL software subscription to meet your workload requirements.

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

Step 3: For the Teradata BYOL ecosystem you’ve selected, subscribe to each software product within the grouping by clicking on the respective links above and following the instruction on each respective AWS Marketplace product page.

Step 4: After subscribing to the required software products, return to this page and click below to launch the appropriate Teradata BYOL ecosystem. The link will take you to the AWS CloudFormation console where you will be asked to enter your desired configuration parameters. After all configuration parameters are entered, the template will create and configure your Teradata BYOL ecosystem within an existing Virtual Private Cloud (VPC).
