Some Teradata software can be deployed using Manual Launch if you are deploying the software separately from Vantage on AWS.

  3. From your account menu in the upper-right corner, select Your Marketplace Software.

    Purchasing option Select the check box to Request Spot Instances.
    Subnet Select a different setting or select the link to configure a new subnet to run the instance in an Availability Zone other than the default.
