Gotta say @GCPcloud, Data Fusion is a nightmare compared to @Trifacta Dataprep. It takes 25 minutes just to spin up the pipeline editor which itself costs $1100/mo just to run. Dataprep charges just for the Dataflow resources. The UX and debuggability of Data Fusion is a disaster
@GCPcloud @Trifacta It's strange, Data Fusion feels so odd-man-out compared to GCP's normally good "serverless" story, e.g. services like BigQuery and Dataflow. The CDAP infrastructure it runs is a monster, and it relies on Dataproc which itself has issues. Good for billing though, I guess.
It's funny because Data Fusion is supposed to let non-technical people build out ETL pipelines, but debugging it takes you straight into Hadoop-land. What's a Hadoop? To be fair, Dataprep uses Dataflow, so when a job shits out you're in an equally precarious spot.
The difference being Dataprep has a significantly more refined UX and makes it much more difficult to screw up your pipeline so debugging is more rare. Data Fusion's UX (I guess, technically, CDAP's?) is just a complete and utter tire fire.
