Scale up on AWS

Hi,

 

I'm looking to get more details on Teradata usage on AWS. How can we easily scale up (or scale down) a Teradata system on AWS ? Is it the same process than adding nodes on Premise or is it easier ?

 

Regards,

Julien

Re: Scale up on AWS

On the currrent version of Teradata on AWS you have to launch exactly what you need. There is no adding nodes or additional resources on existing instances. If you wanted a bigger system after an initial deployment you would need to do a backup of your existing database to some location such as S3 storage, then launch a new instance of the desired size and then restore the data to the new instance of Teradata.

Ok thanks for this information.

It is a little odd as we don't take advantages of the Cloud flexibility. Do you have a roadmap to have such possibility on AWS ?

 

Thanks,

Regards.
