I'd like to continue my trial and want to make sure the 30 day free trial will span multiple start/terminations of instances. Can anyone confirm this is the case? I will not be running more than one instance at a time. I just want to minimize AWS charges during the 30 days.
I am not sure about if this will survive multiple terminations, someone from Amazon or someone who has done the trial may need to comment on that part of your question. You should be able to stop and start your Amazon instance of Teradata without a problem during your trial. One very important thing to note is that we you do your deployment you want to make sure that you DO NOT pick "local storage". Make sure you pick the network attached storage instead of local storage because when you use local storage your data in the database will get wiped out in cases where you shutdown linux, hit a linux panic and various other similar scenarios.
