Teradata unveils cloud strategy

Summary:The data-warehousing giant is outlining its cloud-computing strategy this week, including an internal cloud service and a public offering via Amazon Web Services

Data-warehousing giant Teradata is outlining its cloud-computing strategy including an internal cloud service and a public offering via Amazon Web Services. In addition, Teradata is rolling out an appliance it says will provide a big performance boost.

The announcements, timed for Teradata's partner conference in Washington DC this week, highlight how the stakes are being raised in the data-warehousing space. Teradata is battling larger foes such as Oracle with its Exadata appliance and HP, plus smaller players such as Netezza.

Teradata is rolling out a bevy of new initiatives, but the most notable is its cloud strategy. Teradata has a multi-pronged strategy that includes an internal cloud offering for customers — housed in the vendor's datacentre — and a public rollout with Amazon Web Services's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).
