Teradata has introduced new private cloud capabilities to its Active Data Warehouses (ADW).
The idea of the data warehouse private cloud is that it ensures computing resources are fully utilised, with the company claiming 95 per cent server utilisation via its system, compared to quoted figures of 25 per cent for a traditional server.
The Teradata ADW private cloud is designed to reduce the number of servers in play and deliver cost savings, with the company offering an Elastic Performance on Demand pay-per-use model.
This allows a business to access capacity held in reserve when necessary at times of peak demand, such as major launches or big orders, with the enterprise only paying for what's used.
Scott Gnau, President of Teradata Labs, commented: "Today's global business environment can be volatile and consumer demands can shift rapidly. Because of this unpredictability, it is sometimes difficult for CIOs to adequately plan for data warehouse capacity needs. Teradata can provide instant and elastic resources behind the scenes so businesses can scale up or down as business conditions fluctuate."
"Through our Teradata ADW Private Cloud, we are the only data warehousing company providing CIOs a huge return on investment with fully utilized computing resources, while delivering to business users the flexibility of self-service data warehouse resource provisioning - and it's available to customers today."
