Likelihood to Recommend

Amazon Aurora

Amazon Aurora is best suited for creating complex, highly available and commercial databases, in a very straightforward way. The database size should be medium to large because only then will you be able to justify the extra cost incurred for using Amazon Aurora. Another aspect is that if you are already using AWS and most of your applications and services are on the cloud, then it makes sense to use Amazon Aurora since it fits in the Amazon ecosystem really well.

SAP HANA

High volume, high value data is a natural fit for SAP HANA. We use to store supply information, which s a very large dataset and is relevant rolled up to a total amount and when rolled all the way down to individual items used for individual procesures. HANA is probably a suboptimal place to store slowly-changing, seldom used data (although I'd still recommend using Smart Data Access to manage how users interact with that data)

Pros

Amazon Aurora

  • Aurora is a relational database as a service on AWS which is MySQL and Postgres compatible. So if you are looking for a serverless option which going through need to host and manage a database then Aurora as a service is great.
  • It is a simple and cost-effective open source database which is much cheaper than a normal database cost. Hence very efficient for microservices database where you do not need one very large centralized database but many small databases that are available and low latency.
  • Aurora provides high performance and low latency. Last year they also announced multi-master in the same region and read replicas in multiple regions. This is very convenient if you are trying to design and build a highly reliable application.

SAP HANA

  • HANA is ultra-fast at processing data. It runs in-memory so it is almost real-time data.
  • HANA is extremely versatile. It allows us to use graphical views or SQL based views.
  • HANA is also able to tap into multiple tools outside of SAP. It unifies your data sources.

Cons

Amazon Aurora

  • Just like AWS DynamoDB which is a not a SQL solution and is truly a global DB, it would be great if AWS Aurora can become a global DB. What that means is that it is multi-region multi-master. That way writes to different regions of AWS would all be in sync and available in replicas on different regions.

  • More training materials on modules would be a good thing.
  • Reports get executed slowly, especially on mobile.
  • It is a bit expensive compared to other similar tools in the market.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Aurora

Unlike proprietary solutions like Microsoft SQL Server, Amazon Aurora does not need proprietary licensing, so we can use this budget to get cloud solutions with high availability and performance, at a similar rate. When compared to MySQL or Postgres SQL, it allows us to have a database system always updated with the most current features and security best practices without having to worry about it. In normal database systems like MySQL to keep the database system up to date we need to have someone always looking for new upgrades.As it relies on MySQL there is no extra formation for a team that is already used to a MySQL solution.

SAP HANA

If we did not use SAP HANA, we would have used an Oracle 12c database. We selected HANA since it was recommended for Suite on HANA. So far SAP HANA has proven to be a great fit for our systems that are on Suite on HANA. All future systems we implement will be on SAP HANA.

Return on Investment

Amazon Aurora

  • Aurora Serverless has allowed us to inexpensively implement best-practices for our microservices architecture.
  • Aurora is mostly managed; our engineers can focus on features instead of database administration.
  • Aurora is capable of high throughput. Speed is not our first priority, but we still benefit from it.
