Actian Avalanche

This is a tool geared for smaller to mid-sized business that has disparate sources of data from different platforms in varying incarnations. It’s a great ETL tool to solve the problems a scenario like that causes, but you can also achieve that with good BI Tools like Qlik Sense. So be careful that you really need an ETL tool, as opposed to an end-use tool with a built-in ETL component. If you are going ELT and have a lot of data an not a lot of corporate resources, this is a better option than Microsoft or Informatica

Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse

II would recommend Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse to someone looking to fully automate the transferring of data especially in a warehouse scenario though I can see the elasticity of the suite that is offered and can see it is applicable in other scenarios not just warehouses.

  • Low cost

Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse

  • Very easy and fast to load data into the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse
  • Exceptionally fast retrieval of data joining 100 million row table with a billion row table plus the size of the database was reduced by a factor of 10 due to how Oracle store[s] and organise[s] data and indexes.
  • Flexibility with scaling up and down CPU on the fly when needed, and just stop it when not needed so you don't get charged when it is not running.
  • It is always patched and always available and you can add storage dynamically as you need it.

Cons

Actian Avalanche

  • As I said before, more training or greater visibility to training tools/options would be a plus. It’s easy to publish YouTube videos these days, I think they should make more of them.
  • Differentiation would help, there’s not a lot out there to drive you to buy the product if you are well informed in the market. If you know the market, you steer towards the large or trendy products. It’s a good product, but lost in the noise of the field I think.
  • Hitching the wagon to a major software brand (like Mule did to Salesforce) would help grow the user base, and thus increase the activity in the support community. More users also translates into product champions.

Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse

  • Level of integration or compatibility to connect it to different applications can be improved
  • The support service is slow
  • The issue is with the record number limitation of not being able to bring back more than one million records or not being able to export larger datasets to Excel

Because
  • It is really simple to provision and configure.
  • Does not require continous attention from the DBA, autonomous features allows the database to perform most of the regular admin tasks without need for human intervention.
  • Allows to integrate multiple data sources on a central data warehouse, and explode the information stored with different analytic and reporting tools.

Understanding Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is really simple, and Autonomous databases are even more. Using shared or dedicated infrastructure is one of the few things you need to consider at the moment of starting provisioning your Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse.

Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse

As I mentioned, I have also worked with Amazon Redshift, but it is not as versatile as Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse and does not provide a large variety of products. Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse is also more reliable than Amazon Redshift, hence why I have chosen it

Return on Investment

Actian Avalanche

  • We had to move out of VectorWise after using the database for 2 years. Hence no positive impacts.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse

  • With OBIEE we had a limitation on the license, with OAC and Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse, since it is pay-per-use services, it significantly reduced the cost.
  • the resource requirement was also on smaller side, as the maintenance activity primarily was done by the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse itself.
