Teradata on AWS

Hi ,


Our management has decided to move to Teradata AWS .


Currently we are using TD 14.


As i m new to this , i would like to know whether it would be hadoop supported distributed system where the teradata would be mounted. Can anyone give me an insight whether hadoop plays a role in when we talk about "Teradata on AWS" . Do we need to know the concept of Cluster,data node,edge node,name node .. etc  .


If yes can you please share the name of the document/orange book to know about "Teradata on AWS" ?
