    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.

    It is less appropriate for small clients/workloads, with not much data to back up, and not many servers. More suited for enterprise customers with hundreds of servers and several terabytes of data to back up daily.

    • The tool administration platform must be improved.
    • You should look for simplicity for the configuration complexity of suite products.
    • The online viewing tool should be more stable.

      In the present, a backup solution is a must-have, but then companies start using a solution for virtual machines, another solution for bare-metal servers, and another solution for their ERP. By using Spectrum Protect you can have all of that in a single pane of glass. This way you can have a simple recovery plan for all your information assets.

      Performance

      Fivetran

      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.

      IBM has reduced the staff for IBM Spectrum Protect support. In some situations there are a lot of Sev1 cases opened and not enough support staff to take care of them.

      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 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

      • It can be used as a disaster recovery solution when you have the right configuration (either replication or tape copies in a safe location). This way it can be a lifesaver for any company.
      • It can bring back the information you need if you are hit by ransomeware.
      • It is also needed if you are accounting for user error, sometimes people delete the files they need by accident and without a backup solution they are out of luck
