Vantage Cloud Pricing

No two organizations’ data analytics needs are the same. That’s why Vantage offers a choice of cloud pricing models, so you always have the right fit for your workloads, your budget, and your goals. Whether you start small and grow as your needs change or tackle massive workloads from day 1, you’ll only pay for what you need and always enjoy the lowest cost at scale. 

Flexible & Affordable Cloud Pricing Options


Blended Cloud Pricing for Vantage is an enterprise-class pricing model that couples low-cost, predictable reserved compute capacity with on-demand elasticity in which you pay only for additional compute resources used or activated, plus storage. Unlike legacy alternatives that force you to pay full-time for any peaks in usage, Teradata Blended Pricing offers a tailored approach that allows you to get what you require in an efficient manner while benefitting from the lowest cost at scale.


Consumption Cloud Pricing for Vantage is an innovative, pay-as-you-go option with automatic elasticity in which you pay only for compute resources consumed for successful queries, measured down to the kilobyte by user, plus storage. Unlike capacity-based alternatives determined by whether compute instances are turned on or off irrespective of usage, Teradata Consumption Pricing is strictly a function of usage. You need never worry about utilization, system sizing, query concurrency, or resource status because Teradata manages them all — and you do not pay for what you do not use. For a true risk-free experience, there is even a zero-down, no obligation option.

Vantage cost meets or beats the competition.

At scale


Vantage is the clear winner. Our costs grow linearly; the competition’s grow exponentially.
