Teradata Database Use Cases for the Public Cloud
Teradata Database can be used in different ways when a powerful relational database solution is needed in the public cloud.
|Analytics Sandbox||A short-lived, flexible, and evolving analytic environment that can be easily stood up, evolved, scaled, and shut down based on discovery, development, and testing needs.|
|Backup, Archive, and Restore||Migrate a portion of your BAR operations to the cloud to reduce hardware and maintenance costs and convert capital expenses to operating expenses. Most solutions include a combination of on-premises and cloud storage based on the need to restore from the backup.|
|Database Conversions||Migrate from a third-party database to Teradata, focusing on automatically inventorying, capturing, and recreating data structures on Teradata and the SQL code conversion.|
|Migrate from On-Premises to the Cloud||Migrate workloads from on-premises to the cloud in total or in part. Migrations include establishing the environment and an initial historical data load/port.|
|Test and Development||Stand up a persistent and scalable environment for developing and testing solutions prior to deploying into production. The test and development environment includes the other ecosystem components running in your production environment.|
|Production Analytics Solutions||A public cloud analytics solution allows you to find new insights in your data. Analytics includes both business intelligence (BI) and advanced analytic capabilities.|
|Cloud-based Data Lake on Hadoop||Build a data lake on top of a pubic cloud. Engagement may include building the analytics on top of the lake.|
