VMware Tanzu Greenplum on Public Cloud


VMware Tanzu Greenplum is a commercial fully featured Massively Parallel Processing(MPP) Data Warehouse platform powered by the open-source Greenplum Database. It provides powerful and rapid analytics on petabyte-scale data volumes. Uniquely geared toward big data analytics, VMware Tanzu Greenplum has the world’s most advanced cost-based query optimizer delivering high analytical query performance on large data volumes.

Being the best of breed among data warehouses, customers wanted to have their workloads handled by VMware Tanzu Greenplum on the cloud across all major cloud providers. This gave birth to VMware Tanzu Greenplum Cloud Platform.

Whilst continuing to succeed in the on-prem data warehouse sector, our VMWare Tanzu Greenplum Cloud Platform offerings ensure that our customers could now deploy VMware Tanzu Greenplum via one of the major public cloud service provider’s marketplace to gain fast, automated access, to optimally designed clusters at costs that they can control with deployment options, tailored for each service provider’s infrastructure – Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure.

Why do customers just love us?

Compared to the on-prem version of Greenplum, there are multiple benefits that you can get by hosting Greenplum on the cloud. I’ll discuss the major ones here.​

No Infrastructure/No Datacenter
The infrastructure is completely handled by the cloud provider. So, the customer need not spend on purchasing the infrastructure and managing them. There is no need for resource planning and lengthy procurement processes. Thus, even your operations and facilities costs are drastically reduced.​

Automated Quick and Secure Deployment Anywhere/Anytime/Any size*
Gain access in 90 minutes or less to complete, hosted versions of VMware Tanzu Greenplum in different size clusters anywhere, anytime on a cloud provider of your choice Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud Platform and choose different size nodes and clusters for POCs or short-term projects, development environments, disaster recovery, hybrid cloud, or cloud-only use cases. VMware Tanzu Greenplum Cloud Platform is performance-tuned for each cloud provider and OS, disk, and network configuration are also optimized. The templates and machine images are reviewed by each cloud vendor and data is encrypted at rest.​

As mentioned, it could be deployed on Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud Platform.
