Teradata Software Tiers on Azure Marketplace

Teradata Database subscriptions on Azure Marketplace are available in four convenient software tiers: Developer, Base, Advanced, and Enterprise. Customers may choose the level appropriate to their needs. Each tier entitles the subscriber to a set of features and ecosystem software defined below.

software tiers

Included in All Teradata Database Software Tiers

All four software tiers include either Teradata Database 16.20 or 15.10 with Row Level Security, Secure Zones, and Teradata Columnar plus each of the following Teradata ecosystem capabilities:

  • Teradata Data Stream Controller
  • Teradata REST Services
  • Teradata Server Management
  • Teradata Tools and Utilities
  • Teradata Viewpoint (Single System)

Up-Level Your Environment with Teradata IntelliSphere™

In addition to selecting a Teradata Database software tier, customers may also subscribe to Teradata IntelliSphere™, a comprehensive software bundle with extraordinarily powerful capabilities to Ingest, Access, Manage, and Deploy analytical ecosystems. An IntelliSphere subscription provides rights to use 10 different Unified Data Architecture (UDA) software products previously licensed separately, such as:

  • Teradata Data Lab
  • Teradata Data Mover
  • Teradata QueryGrid Manager (with Connectors)
  • Teradata Viewpoint (Multiple Teradata Systems)

Additional information about this flexible, affordable solution for the Enterprise, Advanced, and Base tiers is available at

Software Pricing and Azure Virtual Machine Options

key tier differences
  • Teradata software prices (shown in light green) are for hourly "pay as you go" consumption.
  • Teradata software prices do not include Azure virtual machine or premium storage charges, which may vary by region.
  • Not every virtual machine or storage configuration is available in every region; consult the Azure website for current information.
  • Storage figures shown are for raw capacity; actual Customer Data Space (CDS) will be lower.


Two Easy Ways to Buy

There are two easy ways for you to buy and use Teradata software on Azure Marketplace; the best option depends on your expected usage:

  1. Hourly (On-Demand) Consumption – for maximum flexibility with zero commitment, choose Azure Marketplace, the Microsoft Azure online store that helps business customers find, buy, and immediately start using the software. Azure handles billing and payments, and software charges appear on your Azure bill.
  2. 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. You’ll redeem your license during the deployment process on Azure Marketplace. Most organizations that already use Teradata analytics or are engaged with a Teradata account team will prefer this option.

Either way, you’ll select, provision, and manage the underlying Azure infrastructure to use with Teradata software through Azure Marketplace.
