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
  • It's quite easy to set up and provision new RDS instances.
  • Setting up multi-zone failover tolerant databases is literally just a couple mouse clicks.
  • Databases are automatically backed up and have minor version upgrades applied.
  • Set and forget.

Cons

  • The ten.do interface could use more detailed documentation
  • RDS is much more expensive than MySQL+EC2.

Alternatives Considered

While we have used SQL, 1010data is really the only industry standard product available for our use.
Automated snap-shotting every 24 hours is, again something that I could just set up in minutes with a few clicks, though we also backup on cron jobs to elsewhere, and, because of our industry we have a HUGE "forensic logs" that initially live in the database but get archived off every seven days. (We literally log every single API call between our front-end and our application servers, and the data structures that the APIs return.

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.
  • Using AWS in general, and especially RDS, has made it extremely easy to gain the trust of enterprise-level clients who have significant security and privacy concerns.
  • The scalability and rapid upgrade process of RDS has freed my business from a lot of growing pains.
  • Thanks in part to RDS, our hosting costs account for under 1% of operating costs.
