Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling

It is great if you
want something less sophisticated than Kubernetes. There is less complexity in scalling and there is freedom in configuring how you want to scale. Downside is that you can scale one particular micro service, maybe its not the best fit for a micro service based application.

Apache HTTP Server

Well Suited: Perfect for hosting your own website. And, I don't mean just an individual with a port of MySpace. I mean an industrial strength, commercial grade replacement for Microsoft IIS. If you need a web server that provides a feature-rich environment with support for multiple sites (hosted in the same server), with such features as virtual hosting, and modular feature design, than Apache Web Server is right on the money. Less Well-Suited: Single page, small feature-set websites. Apache is a lot of trouble for developers to set up, just to send/receive JSON strings of a few bytes. You're really better off using something smaller and faster/simpler (lighttpd for example).

Pros

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling

  • Automation.
  • Increase/decrease capacity on demand based on rules.
  • Very flexible, but technical tool.
Carlos Becerra | TrustRadius Reviewer

Apache HTTP Server

  • Apache server is a free and open source multi-platform software which gives ample amount of possibilities and options to use it without worrying about the hardware configurations much; it runs on almost everything!
  • It is easy to configure quickly for a new project requires to set up a barebone server to serve any type of HTTP request.
  • It allows us to configure https with encryption and configure virtual hosts easily.
  • Log files are detailed enough to determine vulnerabilities by providing multiple params which makes it easy to diagnose and debug the root cause of any server issue.

Cons

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling

  • Sometimes decrease rules may not work.
  • New scaling policy creation is a bit confusing and do[es] no[t] have help.
  • Previous scaling policy screen no longer exists, so you need to understand what new interface actually does.

Apache HTTP Server

  • The one thing that I worry about Apache is the PHP language which is integrated into the platform. I am not sure if PHP has a relevant future. I worry about this because Python is becoming very popular.
  • Some, not so sharp developers, might complain about the configuration file. Yes, it is complex. You need to learn it.
  • Apache SSL documentation can be better.
  • I would like to see video streaming, that would be fantastic.

Usability

Usability is good since we already know how AWS works. For those that are new it might be a little bit confusing at the beginning but they are improving it at a fast pace. Even though AWS keeps changing the user interface constantly, it is still powerful, understandable and easy to use. For technical people, they still offer the CLI.

The platform works as is. The help and tutorials on the help page can help you to setup the entire platform without problems, and also provides help on a huge variety of problems.Amazon also provides support plans. We have the basic support plan, but Amazon offers three support tiers, and we know that it works perfect.

I give this rating because there is so much Apache documentation and information on the web that you can literally do anything. This has to do with the fact that there is a huge Open Source community that is beyond mature and perhaps one of the most helpful to be found. The only thing that should hold anyone back from anything is that they can not read. RTFM, my friend. And I must say that the manual is excellent.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling

AWS UI's are better to use. They are cleaner.
Azure UI looks crowded. AWS instance is faster than Azure. Load balancer
emphases in AWS is useful.

Apache HTTP Server

By having a similar purpose, which is to publish and manage access to services, sites, and/or web systems, I have had to implement them to analyze their qualities and virtues, but stability, the power of implementation of different solutions and to be able to expand through own modules and Apache HTTP Server third-party makes it simply the best.

Return on Investment

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling

  • It has saved us time, since we don't need to manually monitor during busy seasons.
  • It is easy to manage than Kubernetes
Rudolph Pereira | TrustRadius Reviewer

Apache HTTP Server

  • It's hard for us to determine ROI from Apache since most of our sites don't receive high traffic and we don't benchmark performance as often or aggressively as we could.
  • Apache is well documented and extremely common in web hosting offerings, so configuring it and working with it becomes easier.
  • Apache supports cPanel which is a web hosting control panel that makes performing tasks such as implementing SSl, managing files, and administrating databases rather easy.
