If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering WhereScape RED, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
We tend to use the latest version of the solution. We are considering the cloud. We are currently debating whether we need to go to WhereScape or drop WhereScape and we go to the cloud. I've been asking about their host-ability and version controllability if we move to the cloud and they were not giving too many promising answers. Basically, when we go to cloud viewer, we want it to go completely on a platform as a service, not infrastructure as a service, as IaaS is a little more costly than PaaS - The Chinese PaaS. Also, we would like to use, as a team, seven or eight people at scale - not just on the server installed and then use it as one or two accounts. The whole stability issue on the cloud needs a little more clarification. I'd advise companies considering the solution that, if it is on-premise and they have a good volume of data coming, it can be easy to start using it. I'd say that negotiating is important and making sure that the pricing is clear, as they can come back and alter the price after the fact. Other than that, if you had a lean team, I would say go for Wherescape. It's simple, straightforward, and not too complex. That said, if you have more XML semi-structured data, or unstructured data, you might want to look for some other product. I'd rate the solution at an eight out of ten.
I would recommend this product to new users. On a scale from one to ten, I would give WhereScape RED a seven.
For the cost it has a very effective bang for buck.
I would not hesitate to say that if someone has really limited time for a project it can make a difference and you can have the data ready for use in a very short period of time. This can be a lifesaver. I will rate this solution a seven out of ten.
I'm working at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees.
I'm trying to understand the way to host/use WhereScape RED on the Cloud. How do I implement it? Do I need a VM (IaaS) or just a DB (PaaS)?
Should I worry about any difficulties or disadvantages of using Wherescape RED on the Cloud?
