We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"One of the best features of the solution is its ability to easily integrate with other AWS services.""The solution integrates well with other AWS products or services.""The solution is stable and reliable.""It is AWS-integrated. There is end-to-end integration with the other AWS services. It is also user-friendly.""The facility to integrate with S3 and the possibility to use Jupyter Notebook inside the pipeline are the most valuable features.""Glue is a NoSQL-based data ETL tool that has some advantages over IIS and ISAs.""The solution is serverless so it allows us to transform data while optimizing the cost and performance of Spark jobs.""The most valuable feature of AWS Glue is its ease of use and good documentation. Additionally, we can do all the transformations that we need."

"The simplicity of this tool is nice. It has a good graphical user interface. You can also do a lot of generic stuff in the tool. If there is good connectivity to a cloud database, such as Snowflake, and you can have a lot of Snowflake functionality in the tool.""The loading of data is the most valuable feature of Matillion ETL.""Matillion ETL is one hundred percent stable."

Cons
"There should be more connectors for different databases.""If there's a cluster-related configuration, we have to make worker notes, which is quite a headache when processing a large amount of data.""The setup and installation is a bit complex without advanced knowledge or training.""The monitoring is not that good.""It would be better if it were more user-friendly. The interesting thing we found is that it was a little strange at the beginning. The way Glue works is not very straightforward. After trying different things, for example, we used just the console to create jobs. Then we realized that things were not working as expected. After researching and learning more, we realized that even though the console creates the script for the ETL processes, you need to modify or write your own script in Spark to do everything you want it to do. For example, we are pulling data from our source database and our application database, which is in Aurora. From there, we are doing the ETL to transform the data and write the results into Redshift. But what was surprising is that it's almost like whatever you want to do, you can do it with Glue because you have the option to put together your own script. Even though there are many functionalities and many connections, you have the opportunity to write your own queries to do whatever transformations you need to do. It's a little deceiving that some options are supposed to work in a certain way when you set them up in the console, but then they are not exactly working the right way or not as expected. It would be better if they provided more examples and more documentation on options.""The solution should offer features for streaming data in addition to batching data.""The crucial problem with AWS Glue is that it only works with AWS. It is not an agnostic tool like Pentaho. In PowerCenter, we can install the forms from Google and other vendors, but in the case of AWS Glue, we can only use AWS.""The technical support for this solution could be improved. In future, we would like to connect more services like Athena or Kinesis to help control more loads of data."

"I am looking forward to seeing the expansion of the source range for their data loader product.""It can have multi-environment support. We should be able to deploy it in different environments. Its integration with SAP connection is not so nice, which should be improved. It can also support an on-prem database.""There are certain functions that are available in other ETL tools which are still not present in Matillion ETL. It would be good to have more features."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Its price is good. We pay as we go or based on the usage, which is a good thing for us because it is simple to forecast for the tool. It is good in terms of the financial planning of the company, and it is a good way to estimate the cost. It is also simple for our clients. In my opinion, it is one of the best tools in the market for ETL processes because of the fact that you pay as you use, which separates it from other big tools such as PowerCenter, Pentaho Data Integration, and Talend."
  • "Technical support is a paid service, and which subscription you have is dependent on that. You must pay one of them, and it ranges from $15,000 to $25,000 per year."
  • "This solution is affordable and there is an option to pay for the solution based on your usage."
  • "AWS Glue is quite costly, especially for small organizations."
  • "AWS Glue uses a pay-as-you-go approach which is helpful. The price of the overall solution is low and is a great advantage."
  • "The overall cost of AWS Glue could be better. It cost approximately $1,000 a month. There is paid support available from AWS Glue."
  • "The solution's pricing is based on DPUs so it is a good idea to optimize use or it can get expensive."
  • "The current cost is around forty to fifty thousand a month."

  • "Its price depends on what you expect. You pay on a monthly basis, but there is a possibility to have special contracts depending on the installation."
  • "I think it is cost conscious. It used to be very cheap and they have more recently bumped up the pricing, so it is competitive now."

    Overview

    AWS Glue is a fully managed extract, transform, and load (ETL) service that makes it easy for customers to prepare and load their data for analytics. You can create and run an ETL job with a few clicks in the AWS Management Console. You simply point AWS Glue to your data stored on AWS, and AWS Glue discovers your data and stores the associated metadata (e.g. table definition and schema) in the AWS Glue Data Catalog. Once cataloged, your data is immediately searchable, queryable, and available for ETL.

    Matillion ETL for Redshift is a fast, modern, easy-to-use and powerful ETL/ELT tool that makes it simple and productive to load and transform data on Amazon Redshift.  100 x faster than traditional ETL technology, up and running in under 5 minutes and prices from $1.37 per hour, with no commitments or up-front costs.
