ETL on Demand - Informatica PowerCenter Cloud Edition

Informatica PowerCenter Cloud Edition is available on Amazon's Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) for $24.95 per hour. The company said the hourly rate is aimed at companies with only a few applications deployed in EC2 and which need only occasional data integration services.
By hosting data integration software on EC2, customers can take advantage of Amazon's vast infrastructure, according to Chris Boorman, Informatica's head of marketing. When integrating data from one EC2-based application to another, he said, it only makes sense to put the data integration software on EC2 as well.
This is a great news ...


  1. informatica powerCenter cloud it's going to be very useful good post!

  2. Hourly rate... that's a lot of money if you use it a lot... informatica should sell a package with no hourly rate, don't you think?

  3. I think their approach is to offer the full integration platform as a service. Hour is the current unit of measure for rental fee. For Amazon EC2 you could launch it in 10s and shutdown it in 10s but you will be charged for one hour.
