Amazon Athena

Amazon Athena is well suited for those who want to be able to use SQL queries to look at and analyze their data. Once you get up and running with the system and have all of your preferences ironed out, this is a very simple to understand and easy to use program that can help make information-based decisions. How could you not love that!?

Google Cloud Datastore

I think Google Cloud Datastore has some pros and cons as like anything. To me personally it is very mediocre, but I am required to use it by the organization. I would like to use GCP products less as they are not [mediocre] value for money. In terms of Datastore, I haved face problems while creating and managing data sets and models.

Pros

Amazon Athena

  • Pay only for the data you store. Huge money-saver right there.
  • Being able to query using a browser-based system.
  • Compatibility with other programs is a nice feature that is very useful.

Google Cloud Datastore

  • It is hosted in GCP, our primary cloud provider.
  • It integrates with all the services we use in GCP.

Cons

Amazon Athena

  • I wish that the program provided individualized access for different users instead of everyone seeing everything.
  • Initial setup can be a bit tedious for those unfamiliar with this type of querying.
  • Support can be a little lacking when it comes to additional features.

  • Google's support is not the best; most of the time, you would be scrambling to talk to someone but would end up with long email chains with support.
  • Better querying features are needed.

For the amount of use we're getting from Google Cloud Datastore, switching to any other platform would have more cost with little gain. Not having to manage and maintain Google Cloud Datastore for over 4 years has allowed our teams to work on other things. The price is so low that almost any other option for our needs would be far more expensive in time and money.

Google Cloud Datastore is a fully managed, schemaless database for storing non-relational data. You should feel at home if you are familiar with relational databases, but there are some key differences to be aware of to make the most of using Datastore.The goal of Google Cloud is to provide an API that is comfortable to Rubyists. Your authentication credentials are detected automatically in Google Cloud Platform (GCP), including Google Compute Engine (GCE), Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), Google App Engine (GAE), Google Cloud Functions (GCF) and Cloud Run. In other environments you can configure authentication easily, either directly in your code or via environment variables.

Due to timezone differences, we have had issues contacting Google Support, but [we] were able to get our issues and queries solved by the next business day.

Google Cloud Datastore

We selected Google Cloud Datastore as one of our candidates for our NoSQL data is because it is provided by Google Cloud, which fits our needs. Most of our infrastructure is on Google Cloud, so when we think about the NoSQL database, the first thing we thought about is Google Cloud Datastore. And it proves itself.

Return on Investment

Amazon Athena

  • Aided in decision making processes that has saved money for departments and the company.
  • The program takes over doing the majority of the work that used to be manual for a lot of people. Fantastic time-saver.
  • The program makes other programs not as useful as they once were, which helped save money.

Google Cloud Datastore

  • You don't need a dedicated DevOps guy to manage your database. Everything happens at the click of a button on the dashboard.
  • Less amount of time spent on configuration and more time on actual development.
