Software ETL question

Hello Experts,

Which of these three different software’s extract, transfer and load data (Terabyte data) the quickest?  This data resides in Oracle.
      
1      ESSBASE  - Hyperion
2      Informatica
3      SQL - TOAD

Currently, using MS Access queries have proven very sluggish and slow, and we are wondering if SQL in Toad might be a potential solution.

What are your thoughts regarding whether or not ESSBASE, Informatica or creating Hyperion cubes would be an option of being faster with ETL?  

Thanks

My last two questions, can you explain why and does Informatica load data into SQL Server for Users to extract or does it stay within itself?

Informatica, and other ETL tools such as IBM DataStage and Microsoft SSIS, are the tools to transfer data from a source to a destination.  

They are not data containers within themselves that store data.

>MS Access queries have proven very sluggish and slow
The file size limitation of an Access database is 2 Gb's, so if we're talking Teradata than that is well beyond Access' capabilities.
