Teradata ecosystems enable customers to launch multiple Teradata software products simultaneously. Each Teradata ecosystem option links to the AWS CloudFormation console and provides pre-configured templates hosted on Amazon S3 containing the information and configuration options needed to create a new Vantage environment on AWS. Deploy up to 64 instances without the need for additional configuration after launch.
Before using a Teradata ecosystem template, customers must first subscribe to the applicable Teradata software products that the template will launch and configure. The Teradata ecosystem chosen determines the storage type (local or EBS storage) and the database size per node for EBS storage.
Prerequisite: The IAM user must have permissions for AWS CloudFormation, IAM roles, IAM profiles, and instance profiles. Also, check if AWS service limits need to be increased, particularly for EBS, EC2 instances, and VPC elastic IP address limits.
