WhereScape RED Stability

Data Architect at a non-profit with 1,001-5,000 employees
The scheduler often hangs with nothing to inform the user why it isn't working. Sometimes this is simply due to a developer starting a scheduler from their PC which integrates with the repository but isn't obvious when looking at the shared scheduler. Other issues seemed to be only resolved by re-generating the process from scratch and hope for a different result (which often there is), especially if the scheduler hangs. It is very easy to choose an incorrect option when generating processes only to result in something that just hangs with no error message. Then you're knee deep in database procedural language trying to debug a tool's generated code. The sheer resources that it consumes easily overwhelms a server and causes the database to freeze due to exceeding resource constraints. The tool generates an unexpected and seemingly unpredictable amount of staging data (both in and out of the database depending on data movement option chosen) consuming very large amounts of disk space with redundant copies of data. This tool will not promote friendly relations with your system administrators. View full review »

The releases have been of surprisingly high quality compared to other vendor software I have used. We had the opportunity to test out a customer preview (i.e. beta) and were surprised to find no stability issues nor bugs in our testing. The features that were exposed in the customer preview were stable enough we felt comfortable moving forward with upgrading our Dev environments to begin development work using those features.
