Fully Managed Service

IntelliCloud (Hadoop) is a fully-managed Hadoop service that encompasses Database Administration, Workload Management, Database User and Security Administration, Database Performance Optimization, and Release Management. To view the complete itemized list of services provided with your subscription, click here.

Dedicated Platform

IntelliCloud™ (Hadoop) is delivered via dedicated IntelliBase infrastructure that is deployed and managed in a Teradata data center. Each customer receives a dedicated platform that is securely and physically segregated from other customers with absolutely no sharing

Secure Connection

Customers can choose from several methods for connecting to IntelliCloud. A site-to-site VPN (Virtual Private Network) from your data center to ours is standard. The site-to-site VPN uses a 100 Mbps IPsec communication to keep data transmissions secure. If greater bandwidth or a dedicated network port is required, Teradata offers 1 Gbps or 10 Gbps direct connections for an additional fee.




Comprehensive infrastructure and software support is provided by the cloud experts on the Teradata Cloud Operations team. This group also performs activities such as provisioning, onboarding, and software patching while continually monitoring and administering the environment. The Cloud Operations team does not have visibility or access to customers’ data – and customer data is never transferred across country borders.
