Teradata wants to come out of the hardware business and to run its own cloud on other public clouds. I think that is a great way to go. However, there are challenges to doing this. There are multiple layers of security and caching. E.g., if you have a lot of compute or a caching that will offload a lot of compute activity because it's already there, it will save its cycles for something which needs to be done. This way, you are offloading your compute, so you can go with a lesser capacity than a higher capacity. That is what this appliance does. If they are moving off of the appliance, I am curious to see if their software will withstand the change, or will Teradata still run but need a bigger box? I would like more security and speed. These days, everyone is not just moving to cloud, but they are moving to clout. In a multi-cloud environment, you have to be cognizant of data transfer, bandwidth, and egress charges, not just from a performance and scalability point of view, but also how to keep costs low.
