IBM InfoSphere DataStage Scalability

Ursula Fladeruf
Owner at mip GmbH
I feel that the product has excellent scalability. We currently have more than 15,000 users as clients worldwide and scalability has never presented as an issue. It's used in the U.S., in Asia, and in Europe, so it seems to perform in various markets satisfactorily. It's an enterprise-enabled product, so with that designation, it really needs to be scalable to satisfy the needs of clients — and those needs change all the time. It has the ability to connect reliably to a lot of sources and this is a very, very important thing for people who are using it. View full review »

It is quite scalable. DataStage is okay, but the problem of scalability is with another component of the solution (Netezza). The main problem is with the client version of Netezza. IBM stops to support it, then they tell us that we need move to the next version of Netezza. However, the price is too high for the client and we need to look for another platform. The client thinks that Datastage can stay in place with another platform. There are not more than five data analysts and administrators using DataStage because it works at night with ETL processes. Therefore, end users are not using it. The several people who maintain and administer it are the users. We have two data specialist who work with it. From the bank, there are about five people who use it. View full review »

The solution is very scalable, but at a certain point, it consumes a lot of resources. In order to scale, you need a lot of memory and a lot of people. View full review »

Scaling this solution is not difficult. When you first install you chose what components you need. My clients are enterprise companies, with at least five hundred or a thousand employees. View full review »

I've never investigated the scalability, but I can say that it only scales on the machine. I can have three machines running in parallel. We have about 20 people using the solution, and they are mostly developers and admins. We mainly use the solution for APL jobs. View full review »

It depends on project and the customer. Mostly, we have three or four developer users. Maybe three people maintain the solution. View full review »
