CData Software Debuts ETL/ELT Tool for the Cloud with Single, Fixed-Price License Purchase

CData Software, a leading provider of data connectivity solutions, is announcing the launch of CData Sync Cloud, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) tool for the ETL/ELT market, re-envisioning cloud ETL pricing models by bringing a fixed-price, CData-hosted solution to the cloud market.

Sync Cloud builds on the 300-plus standardized data drives that power data integrations for CData customers, further augmented by Sync’s underlying connectivity architecture. Atop of the deep functionality and broad connectivity being brought to the cloud market, Sync Cloud ensures that customer data is safe and segregated from others, protected by enterprise-grade, end-to-end encryption.

Acknowledging how traditional data pipeline tools have often lacked scalable pricing models, Sync Cloud charges users based on the number of data connections they require. This protects against the rapidly increasing costs that volume-based pricing often incurs, ensuring cost consistency with a single, fixed-price license purchase.

“We are excited to bring our enterprise-grade ETL/ELT product, used by over 500 customers, to the cloud,” said Manish Patel, CData chief product officer. “Because CData’s core focus is data connectivity, we are uniquely positioned to provide unmatched depth, breadth, and quality of connection with a supporting business model designed to scale with our customers’ usage—instead of punish them for it.”

According to Anthony Neu, Senior Manager of Data Analytics at Manhattan Associates, the challenge of scale and costs of data pipeline processes in the cloud was a significant roadblock.

“Before migrating to CData Sync, I was tired of burning through credits for data that I didn’t want or need,” Neu said. “I got stressed with the volume pricing around what the units are and when they are used. It was very easy to make a mistake and, in turn, receive a large bill. We have something now that is very cost effective with CData.”
