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 (OCI)

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is great for running applications that do not have the performance requirements of a dedicated bare-metal server. It works really well for graphics-intensive workloads, but also for high performance demanding AI and machine learning algorithms. Moreover, you can manage complex organization structures and rules easily with logical groups and policies.

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 (OCI)

  • 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

  • Its limitation on only Amazon resources.
  • Cost is higher.
  • Lack of ability to create graphs on distinct counts and histograms which can make it hard quickly identify specific IP addresses that have a high request volume in a certain period. We have worked around this but a feature on the dashboard would be nice.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

  • 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.

AWS Support is great, and even besides the official support, the user community support on the web is at least as great. They give quick answers to all your questions.

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 is more cost efficient when compared to AWS, Google cloud, and Microsoft Azure. However, the enterprise user support is not up to the mark as compared to the others. Also, out of box features available are minimal and bare-bones.

Return on Investment

Amazon CloudWatch

  • CloudWatch is liked by the IT guys, in that it makes their job easier. Whether that actually is a positive ROI is debatable. It doesn't seem like it.
  • CloudWatch could have a positive ROI in the sense that IT professionals consider it an integral tool to streamline their management of IT resources.
  • Cloud is not a positive ROI in the sense that it doesn't appear to have saved any money on the personnel or software side.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

  • 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.
