1010data

The software is excellent for any application which is too large for Excel. The visual interface surpasses that of most SQL platforms. It is quite useful for data mining in an exploratory way but less useful in statistical and regression analysis.

Amazon RDS

Amazon RDS is well suited if you need a highly-available, cloud-hosted, scalable database for websites or web applications. It can grow to serve as many queries as you need (at a cost) and is easy to configure. That being said, RDS can get expensive quickly depending on your use. If you're hosting a simple website or blog, it would be cheaper to stand up a database inside the EC2 instance powering the application. If you're not working with a lot of data, RDS can potentially be overkill for your needs.

Pros

  • Crunches huge datasets
  • Has versatility in functionality and grouping capabilities
  • Native XML macro language is easy to master
  • The platform has great visualization tools
  • RDS provides high availability databases without having to manage your own servers.
  • Amazon Aurora in particular is a breakthrough database technology, and in particular with the PostgreSQL engine provides advanced features at a fraction of the cost of an Oracle implementation, with better features that have been designed from the ground up to support the cloud.
  • Aurora also allows supports large clusters of database servers easily, with super fast replication (~20 ms), and flexibility to allow changing resources provisioned based on workload.

Cons

  • The ten.do interface could use more detailed documentation
  • Cross-Region replication is supported for most platforms and engines, but is not available across the board yet. Where it is available it provides an excellent solution for disaster recovery.

Alternatives Considered

While we have used SQL, 1010data is really the only industry standard product available for our use.
Running our database on RDS has been a good option as we originally thought most of our database would be running on EC2 instances and they we needed root access to the machine. We found out that wasn't the case and just needed to change our mindset.

Return on Investment

  • This has sped up the process of analysis.
  • We can now automate process which were performed manually.
  • Analysis can be performed more frequently.
  • ROI can't be judged with just one factor, if the hardware has to be brought and maintained, we might need an additional resource for maintaining the database (database admin).
  • Comparatively there are only positive ROIs to date, so we would highly recommend using Amazon RDS.
