    If you need to establish a system right away, in the past it took weeks or months to request a quote from the vendor and receive the equipment. Now, with Amazon EC2 in less than tens of minutes or hours, you can create a test environment and test it without any inconvenience.

    In our experience, the product performs really well when interfacing systems with ERP's through SQL server database tables, but we've even made some interfaces with the web service functionality included with the magic xpi integration platform. Also, we've made some SAP Business One - SAP Business One interfaces, for copying information from one company to another and even between two different ERP systems.

    Pros

    Amazon AWS

    • Dynamic scaling can be configured to respond to a wide variety of metrics and alerts
    • Predictive scaling allows one to get ahead of high traffic events rather than simply reacting to them
    • Health checks are configurable based on the needs of your application and architecture

    • The UI is really simple to use, you have source/destination mapping for the items.
    • The scheduler gives you a lot of options when executing the models.
    • The error handling is usually pretty good and the errors can be corrected fast.

    Cons

    Amazon AWS

    • Sometimes, Auto scaling takes time to spin up your instances if your traffic is so high in short span of time.
    • And, Auto scaling can be more efficient if we have only Load balancer in our architecture.
    • It has some limitations on setting up the Auto scaling infra.

    • Although the scenarios may be online, the main service usually freezes and the processes can't transact any data. With a single restart of the service, the processes will be functioning again.
    • The support for more applications would be nice, even though there is a nice number of them. Most of the main applications in the market are supported.
    • The licensing for the software may be a little confusing; you can't buy individual licenses as they come in packages of four.

        Usability

        Amazon AWS

        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.

        Amazon AWS

        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.

        Alternatives Considered

        Amazon AWS

        Before we were using server with fixed resources which having Microsoft IIS installed. Server has fixed hard disk size, and fixed number of GBs per month. Sometimes all resources are consumed prior to next billing cycle, then at the end, we need to buy or pay more for extra resources to let all things work as expected. After AWS EC2 Auto scaling, we don't need to go and check how server performing, and how much resources consumed.

        Honestly, we have only used and evaluated magic xpi/xpa platforms because of the recommendation of our SAP Business One main supplier, who has previously used the platform for their developments. So far, we have no regrets with the acquisition of the platform and we are very happy with its performance.

        Return on Investment

        Amazon AWS

        • We will devote more time to development than server administration, but we will require additional time if you migrate from another ecosystem.
        • Fault detection and reporting are automated in the old server, and bandwidth is fixed per month, but everything is manageable automatically. We only pay for the resources we use.
        • After some months, we met our return on investment (ROI).

        • The implementation time for this kind of projects has been greatly reduced.
        • Certifying an In-House resource in the Magix xpi and xpa platforms is probably the best option, considering all of the projects that can be developed in the future without the need of an external consultant.
        • The processes that have been automatized with the Magic xpi platform helped reduce human error and the time those processes took to finish.
