We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The pricing is a bit higher than other solutions like Athena and EC2. If the pricing becomes more scaled or flexible, it will be good because you have to pay 44 cents just for one DPU for an hour. If you increase DPUs to 5 or 10, the pricing gets multiplied. There are also some time limits like 0 to 10 minutes or 10 to 20 minutes. If the pricing is according to the minutes, it would be better because you have to limit your job to 10 minutes or 20 minutes."
"It is not expensive. AWS Glue works on the serverless architecture. We get charged for the time the server is up. For our use case, we have to use it once in a day, and it is not expensive for us."
"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."

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.
Perspectium DataSync is delivered as a comprehensive application in ServiceNow that allows sophisticated data synchronization scenarios to be created without coding. Your data is secure and private due to end-to-end and at-rest encryption, and the performance of your application instances are minimally impacted due to “push” data streaming. By utilizing a message queue, DataSync removes the need for data endpoints to be up and functional all the time, eliminating risk of data loss during intermittent outages at the endpoints. Additionally, due to our use of message brokering, your data stream can be flexibly re-configured without any change to the source - allowing you to flow your data to different targets with minimal impact, and automatic schema creation and maintenance of your data lake means data appears as soon as the schema changes.
