Derrick Harris of GigaOM reports, “Business analytics pioneer Teradata  continues to keep up with the Joneses in the big data world, announcing on Monday a handful of new products and features — a hosted cloud version of its flagship database (which Netflix is already using) and support for JSON documents among them. The Teradata Cloud is just what it sounds like — the popular Teradata data warehouse delivered as cloud service instead of as a physical appliance. It will have all the functionality of the traditional appliance, but is charged on a a subscription basis and allows for fast provisioning of new capacity, Teradata Labs President Scott Gnau said during a recent interview. The company expects it to be ‘TCO-neutral’ with the physical appliance in terms of price, he added, and will add Aster Data and Hadoop as a service in the first half of 2014.”

Harris goes on, “Gnau didn’t seem too sold on the idea of data warehousing and analytics delivered as a service (‘I don’t think it’s a mainstream requirement in the data warehouse industry today,’ he said, citing possibly overblown fears over security and privacy), but acknowledged there is a market already shaping up. Mostly, companies such as Netflix with cloud-first mandates should be interested, as should mid-market companies such as Teradata Cloud customer BevMo.”
