In this moment, excerpted from the Cloud Data Strategy digital event, which took place on March 23, Anu Mohan, Senior Director, Product Management, Teradata, defines how Teradata’s Vantage Cloud Lake helps customers modernize, optimize, and reduce their cloud spend.
00:08 — Teradata provides customers with guidance on how they can modernize. Mohan notes that providing customers with flexibility is key.
00:22 — Mohan explains how Teradata’s Vantage Cloud Lake has a query fabric that “really pushes down queries…not moving unnecessary data around.” Rather, Vantage Cloud Lake uses the analytical engine that is closest to the data to process parts of the query.
01:11 — Teradata’s Vantage Cloud solution is offered across multiple major cloud providers, including AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud, in addition to Teradata’s own multi- and hybrid-cloud deployments.
01:24 — “One of the things that’s unique to Teradata, that’s really a part of our DNA is that, unlike some of our competitors, who grew up in the world of infinite compute in the cloud…we grew up in the world of IT scarcity,” explains Mohan. Therefore, Teradata engineers are “obsessed” with getting the most that they can out of cloud computing resources. The company “really knows how to optimize for the most complex business challenges within a given SLA and create the best price-performance for our customers.” This has become critical in today’s world, as cloud spend poses a very big challenge.
