Server Management Options
Teradata Database supports multiple instances of Teradata Server Management in the public cloud. Multiple instances (CMICs) provide high availability and management of larger database systems. High availability requires at least two CMICs, each of which can manage up to 70 nodes.
- Teradata ecosystem CloudFormation. See http://www.teradata.com/aws/getting-started/.
- Teradata Server Management CloudFormation. See https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/.
If you deploy multiple CMICs using CloudFormation, the CMICs automatically communicate with each other.
