Fivetran

Mostly Fivetran can be useful for working with risk reduction operations during agile data analysis processes. I.e., in the short term the heaviest data movement operations would be safe. If you need to create an automated infrastructure for the data, the ability to create data list transformations in SQL is useful for keeping the work integrable or with schema changes. For situations that require a lot of speed: setting up the Fivetran platform is very easy, as you only need to authenticate the sources of the data to start working, and this is excellent for covering fast storage operations.

IBM Spectrum Protect

Suitable scenarios:
  • Backup copies of database systems with high capacity.
  • Replication between Spectrum Protect systems works very well.
  • Scenarios where a lot of information is handled.
Scenarios that should be improved:
  • The backup of virtual environments must be improved.
  • Dependencies must be reviewed with products for which Snapshots are configured.

It runs pretty well and gets our data from point A to point cluster quickly enough. Honestly, it's not something I think about unless it breaks and that's pretty rare.

Alternatives Considered

Fivetran

Fivetran came well with the connectors' availability and updates with the source changes. We had an idea on data requirements in our case which helped us to work out on cost implication and take a decision for Fivetran as a data provider for our organization. These were 2 places where Fivetran out-performed, other vendors.

IBM Spectrum Protect

IBM Spectrum Protect is related to the other IBM Spectrum products listed because it is part of the suite and is also the main backup product for backup and restoration of information. With Veeam it is related as they present competence in different lines of technology, often the integration of both tools can be the best solution for clients looking for a successful backup strategy.

Return on Investment

Fivetran

  • Development cost have reduced for each connector
  • The pay-per-use model is still not out their which requires lot of overhead cost
Sudarshan Kothari | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Spectrum Protect

  • Because it is a support tool to improve the assurance of information, an ROI is not easily divisible.
