Amazon CloudWatch

Ideal for monitoring AWS services and workloads. We have several of our websites entirely hosted on AWS and we're able to get a Grafana dashboard of all the relevant metrics from CloudFront, S3, EC2, RDS, and Elastic Beanstalk. This can be set up within the hour or templated on your code for infrastructure (we do this with terraform & cloud formation). By design, it isn't suited for non-AWS workloads.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Container Engine for Kubernetes (OKE) is very well suited if you are interested in deploying cloud native applications on Oracle Cloud ( OCI ) and need container support. OKE does not work well when you have some memory and compute bottlenecks that may require configuring the underlying cloud infrastructure to work in a specific way with the Kubernetes engine through OKE since configuration is harder with OKE.

Pros

Amazon CloudWatch

  • Managing log retention periods is very simple with CloudWatch, and can be configured on a per-group basis.
  • Monitoring host performance is very easy when coupled with the CloudWatch Agent on an EC2 instance. A simple installation and configuration replaces an entire 3rd-party host monitoring stack.
  • CloudWatch is flexible enough for not just host monitoring, but application monitoring as well. It's easy to pipe local logs up to CloudWatch and extract structured data in order to monitor and set alerts on custom app metrics.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

  • Reduction in cost as no scalability is required from an IT infrastructure side.
  • Pre-configured, engineered and simple in nature. This helps in reducing complexity on the IT side.
  • Less number of workers needed. Helps in effectively reducing man power and using comp.

Cons

Amazon CloudWatch

  • CloudWatch doesn't monitor things outside of the cloud, it's not what it is intended for.
  • Billing is confusing as it bills on Dashboard, metrics called, custom metrics, etc. Hard to forecast the charge.
  • Paradigm is confusing sometimes and difficult to learn.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

  • Visual network designer would assistant in ensuring configuration matches intended design.
  • Automatic and seemless migration of VMs from OCI Classic to OCI would show that Oracle is taking cloud infrastructure service seriously.
  • Better, faster support. Traditional methods of filing SRs date back to the 1980s. Online realitime chat with support that know what they're doing is critical.
  • One click template image load from Oracle Cloud Marketplace is basic omission. It's available for oci-c but not oci.

Support is effective, and we were able to get any problems that we couldn't get solved through community discussion forums solved for us by the AWS support team. For example, we were assisted in one instance where we were not sure about the best metrics to use in order to optimize an auto-scaling group on EC2. The support team was able to look at our metrics and give a useful recommendation on which metrics to use.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon CloudWatch

I can only speak to how it's positively benefited my organization. The problem was that hosting in-house servers is no longer a cost-effective solution vs. containerization in the cloud. But once you rely on hosting servers in the cloud you need a tool to manage every aspect of that including log monitoring, resource utilization, and application performance. Amazon CloudWatch is exactly the tool you need.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

We have selected Oracle Cloud Infrastructure mainly because of the native support for Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse, which is our preferred choice for data storage in the case of our newest products. Another important factor was the Ravello service allowing us to deploy our existing VMware data center workloads without any modification to the currently configured virtual machines and network.

Return on Investment

Amazon CloudWatch

  • Scalability. Saving us cost when we can downgrade underperforming instances.
  • Great monitoring and peace of mine without always having to check logs to any services failure.
  • Support cost is high. It would be nicer if documentation would be easier to follow.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

  • We have an internal chargeback for infrastructure and we anticipate the cost factor will be neutral.
  • We have been impressed with the provisioning aspect of OCI and expect it to save on data center staff.
  • The scalability of OCI has been a timesaver for our environments.
