Gets data from Point A to Point B

We use it to sync a MySQL instance to a redshift cluster so we can run analytics against a non-prod environment.
  • Quick replication of data with minimal lag.
  • Automated reporting if data is out of date.
  • The customer support team is relatively good.
  • A full schema refresh takes us two-three days and knocks us offline from monitoring up-to-date business KPIs, running updated analyses, etc. This is likely due to us having massive amounts of data (from a count(1) perspective, not size of tables perspective).
  • There's little to no progress estimate on the front end UI to see how long this refresh might take and you need to enable back end logging in Amazon to see where it's at in the sync process and derive rough estimates of completion time.
Fivetran works well when you have a lot of data in different places and want to get it all in one spot. I don't think it's as necessary if you have one cluster that needs to be replicated against and the data could wait a day. In this instance, there are other tools.

About Fivetran

Fivetran replicates all your applications, databases, events and files into a high-performance data warehouse, after a five minute setup. The vendor says their standardized cloud pipelines are fully managed and zero-maintenance.

The vendor says Fivetran began with a realization: For modern companies using cloud-based software and storage, traditional ETL tools badly underperformed, and the complicated configurations they required often led to project failures. To streamline and accelerate analytics projects, Fivetran developed zero-configuration, zero-maintenance pipelines to deliver data into modern cloud warehouses.

Shaped by the real-world needs of data analysts and business intelligence users, Fivetran technology promises to enable organizations to control their data without complex engineering and ultimately supports data-backed decisions and company culture.
