About the Services
AWS Data Pipeline
AWS Data Pipeline is a cloud-based data integration service from Amazon. It works well with cloud and on-premise data sources. Amazon launched it in 2012. And since then, it helped thousands of customers move and process data.
But unlike AWS Glue, Data Pipeline is not serverless. It requires an Amazon EC2 instance to perform processing.
AWS Data Pipeline has a web interface to define your data processing workflows. And it requires no coding knowledge. In one place, you can schedule, automate, and track your data workflows. It’s more of a fill-in-the-blanks rather than drag-and-drop.
AWS Data Pipeline is like any other AWS service when it comes to security and privacy. It’s HIPAA eligible and has various certifications, including SOC 1 and PCI DSS. Rest assured that your data is in safe hands.
Dataloader.io is a cloud solution to import, export, and delete Salesforce data powered by Mulesoft Anypoint Platform, the counterpart of the desktop version of the same name. It focuses on Salesforce data enabling imports and exports to and from CSV files. These CSV files may come from FTP, SFTP, or cloud storage like Box and DropBox.
Dataloader.io doesn't require registration as it supports Salesforce authentication. Much like the desktop version, it uses fill-in-the-blank forms and not drag-and-drop. You can't use any other source or target aside from the mentioned ones. You can choose a task between Import, Export, and Delete and follow the wizard to complete it. The difference between the cloud and the desktop version is in scheduling and notification features.
With Dataloader.io, your data is safe with security and privacy certifications. It is PCI Level 2, SSAE16, ISO 27001, SOC 1 and 2, and GDPR compliant. This cloud service lives in Amazon Web Services (AWS) and uses AWS privacy and security certifications.
Skyvia is a no-code cloud data integration platform for many data integration scenarios. It’s an all-rounder tool for ETL, ELT, Reverse ETL, data migration, one-way and bi-directional data sync, workflow automation, and more. Devart launched this fantastic product in 2014 for cloud data integration and backup.
Skyvia offers more than 160 ready-made data connectors. These are available for thousands of free users, including 2000+ paid customers. Big names like Hyundai and General Electric trust Skyvia to process their data. Its easy-to-use, drag-and-drop interface suits both IT professionals and business users. And don’t take our word for it. Listen to G2 reviewers about how easy it is to start and work with it. Data integration experts who used other tools can adapt with little to no help from support.
Skyvia has flexible pricing plans perfect for small startups and large enterprises. So, it makes it applicable to businesses of all sizes. Also, Skyvia’s freemium model allows users to start using it now and then decide if they need to upgrade later.
The safety of your data is also our prime concern. So, we hosted it in Microsoft Azure cloud, providing the best data security and privacy. It complies with a wide set of security standards, including SOC 2, ISO 27001, and many others.

AWS Data Pipeline
AWS Data Pipeline has data connectors for AWS RDS, JDBC data sources, and more. These let you connect to various data sources. Be it databases, cloud platforms, and storage systems. Some of the most popular ones include Amazon S3, Amazon RDS, and Amazon Redshift.
AWS Data Pipeline allows you to connect to other data sources using AWS SDKs. This allows you to connect to any data source with an API or a JDBC driver. With this, you can use Java, .NET, and others.
There's little to say about Dataloader.io connectors because you can only use Salesforce data and CSV. Your CSVs should be in your local drive, FTP, or cloud storage like Box and DropBox. For Enterprise users, SFTP is also available.
Dataloader.io allows importing attachments to Salesforce from Zip files and exporting attachments from Salesforce to a Zip file. Each attachment relates to a Salesforce object, like Contacts or Events. When importing attachments, you should have a CSV file containing information about the attachments and the Zip file.
Trying an Import task shows a Database option as the data source, but it's not yet available.
If you need more data sources and destinations, it is better to choose another tool that has more connectors.
Skyvia offers more than 160 connectors, and more to come very soon. It supports connectors for CRMs, accounting, email marketing, e-commerce, human resources, marketing automation, payment processing, product management, all major databases and DWH, flat files, and more. It’s also not a problem whether your data is on-premise or in the cloud.
You can access your on-premise data with peace of mind using the Skyvia Agent. It allows you to connect to databases like SQL Server, MySQL, and more using an encrypted connection. You need to download the Skyvia Agent and install it. Then, download a secured key file and place it in the same folder as the Agent. The Agent is like an unbreakable metal door, and you use the key file to open that door to your on-premise data. You can also set it up so that Skyvia can access only the resources you specify and nothing else.
Customers can also leave a request for a new data connector. And Skyvia will prioritize building it without additional payment.
AWS Data Pipeline
AWS Data Pipeline supports various types of transformations like filtering, aggregation, and normalization. You can use a simple drag-and-drop interface to perform transformations. Or write your transformations using a programming language like Python or Java. For even more complex transformations, you can also use Hive, Pig, and MapReduce.
Scheduling data transformation activities is easy with AWS Data Pipeline. And you can also check it in real-time using the AWS Management Console or through API calls. With AWS Data Pipeline, customers have complete control over their data transformation process.
In Dataloader.io, you only specify a source Salesforce object or the CSV file. Then, you map the columns. There’s no option to transform data further.
If you need further transformation, you can use an external tool and work on the CSV files.
Skyvia is a full-featured ETL service that allows powerful data transformations. It is a no-code solution allowing data splitting, conversion, lookups, and many more.
You can use the Skyvia Data Flow and Control Flow for advanced data pipelines. Transformations for these advanced pipelines are flexible. It supports extending your data with new columns, conditional flows, and summarized values. And all these you can do with parameters, variables, and more for flexibility without code.
Moreover, Skyvia has an Expression Builder to build formulas with many functions. With this, you can convert or extract parts of the data or form new values to suit your needs. And if you love coding in SQL, Skyvia can further extend your transformation needs. It supports multiple joins, groupings, CASE expressions, and more in SELECT queries. And you can also use DML commands like INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE.

AWS Data Pipeline
AWS Data Pipeline offers a pay-as-you-go pricing model. The frequency of pipeline runs forms the basis of the model. Low-frequency runs are pipelines that run less than once a day. Rates are lower than high-frequency runs, which are pipelines that run once a day or more.
AWS Data Pipeline also offers a Free Trial. This includes 3 low-frequency preconditions and 5 low-frequency activities per month. This is free for 12 months. The Free Trial includes access to all AWS features. So, customers can test out the service and see if it meets their needs.
There are three pricing plans for Dataloader.io: Free, Professional, and Enterprise. Each plan has its limits on what you can do within Dataloader.io.
You can try the Free plan immediately if you have a Salesforce account. The Free plan allows you to process 10,000 rows per month and a CSV file limit of 10MB. CSV locations available to you are your local drive, FTP, Box, and Dropbox. You can only have one scheduled task, which expires after 30 days. If you need help, only the community can provide it.
With the Professional plan, the number of rows increases to 100,000/month, and a CSV file limit extends to 50MB. You can also have 50 scheduled tasks that never expire. If you need help, you can send an email or ask the community. There’s no free trial for the Professional plan. Try the Free plan first. Then, extend the limits by paying per month per user.
