We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
Please share what you can so you can help your peers.
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 also 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.
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.
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.
I work at a company with 10,000+ employees and I'm looking at these 2 cloud integration solutions: AWS Glue and Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services.
Please advise which one is the best choice and why?
