Microsoft Connectors for Oracle and Teradata by Attunity

Thanks to Euan Garden for mentioning that MS have licensed Attunity's Oracle and Teradata 'Connect adapters' (ie database providers) for use with SSIS 2008 (Attunity press release here).

I've known about Attunity's providers for a while, but the licensing deal is great news, because paying for database providers is a difficult case to make. Anyone using Oracle for a source or destination in a SSIS package should investigate using these since, as I have posted before, there are a number of bugs with Oracle providers. I've yet to try the Attunity providers myself so I'll post again when I've tried them out. However, its hard to see they could be any worse than Oracle's.

Anyway you can download them here.
