Teradata to include private cloud capabilities in data warehousing
Organisations get more processor utilisation through Elastic Performance on Demand
Teradata has ported new private cloud-like capabilities to its Active Data Warehouse product.
Teradata claimed the new private cloud features would mean that servers will be operating at up to 95 per cent utilisation compared with 25 per cent on a virtualised server.
The company also touted its new Elastic Performance on Demand, where businesses can have extra capacity but not pay for it until they need it.
Customers agree with Teradata a baseline performance of the data warehouse and when usage spikes over that level, companies can then pay for what they use. It said that users can address sudden surges in business activity, driven by events such as major marketing campaign launches or unexpectedly high demands in fad-driven manufacturing orders of seasonal demand swings including holiday promotions.
"Leading companies have consolidated under-utilised servers and storage onto a Teradata ADW Private Cloud, reducing costs - while increasing utilisation of their IT resources," said Scott Gnau, president, Teradata Labs. "By eliminating data marts, many with only 10-20 per cent utilisation, companies can consolidate onto a Teradata ADW Private Cloud running at 90 to 100 per cent utilisation."
Consolidating data marts onto Teradata's ADW Private Cloud also permits companies to integrate data, giving users a unified version of the most relevant data- more quickly and at less cost - it said for better business intelligence across disciplines and processes.
He added that his company was the "only data warehousing company providing CIOs a huge return on investment with fully utilised computing resources, while delivering to business users the flexibility of self-service data warehouse resource provisioning - and it's available to customers today."
