Do you need help choosing the right tool for your cloud ELT workloads? This is a common question from clients who have existing ETL workloads on premise and are considering moving them into the cloud.
In most cases, clients have defined nightly batches that execute on Informatica or SSIS packages, etc. and they know how they get from point A to point B. What they want from me is to develop an architecture and tell them exactly what tools they would use when they migrate to the cloud.
Here’s my answer – it depends. It depends on the workload that you’re trying to do as we have a lot more tools in the cloud than we do on premise.
For all you golfers out there, let me equate this to playing a game of golf. In the modern ELT we have all sorts of tools; in golf, our tools are the 14 different clubs in our golf bag. Each club will hit the ball, but each is designed to do something different. Here’s my analogy:
In conclusion, the tools that you’re going to use for your cloud ELT depends upon the event that you just did and what needs to happen next or in the game of golf, the tool used depends on the events that happened on the golf course.
I hope you found this helpful, whether you’re a golfer or not, and hopefully your ELT workloads in the cloud go as smooth as, or smoother in many cases, than your golf game.
