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.

Docker is great for when you would want to use a VM for any given application, but don't need the overhead of the whole OS. Docker containers use very little computing resources, boot up very quickly, and are very easy to set up. An instance where Docker may not be appropriate would be for an application that requires good security. If in this situation, a true VM would probably be your best bet.

Pros

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling

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

Mirantis Cloud Native Suite (Docker Enterprise)

  • Containerization - allowing multiple micro-services to function together without in-depth orchestration at the VM level.
  • Rapid deployment - a developer with appropriate access can simply push to the correct remote and the deploy happens automatically from there
  • Decouples provisioning from VM administration - allows containers to be deployed (more) regardless of VM set up.

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.

  • As a NON-heavy user, definitely it's a bit intimidating in the onboarding phase. It's hard to understand what everything is for and how to use it appropriately. As I wrote before, this could be because I'm not a hard developer myself.
  • At least on Windows 10, I always have problems turning it on. It has problems starting, I need to quit/start again, and then it works. I'm supposed to have a stable version, not sure if it's only myself.

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.

Docker's CLI has a lot of options, and they aren't all intuitive. And there are so many tools in the space (Docker Compose, Docker Swarm, etc) that have their own configuration as well. So while there is a lot to learn, most concepts transfer easily and can be learned once and applied across everything.

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.

The community support for Docker is fantastic. There is almost always an answer for any issue I might encounter day-to-day, either on Stack Overflow, a helpful blog post, or the community Slack workspace. I've never come across a problem that I was unable to solve via some searching around in the community.

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.

Mirantis Cloud Native Suite (Docker Enterprise)

Prior to docker, we had a custom build and deployment system. For local development, we use VirtualBox to host our VMs, while our custom VMs resided directly on the servers. We chose Docker primarily to allow us to get rid of our custom deployment system, both simplifying build and deploy processes and reducing the support needs of our own custom solution.

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

Mirantis Cloud Native Suite (Docker Enterprise)

  • With Swarm we managed to have the horizontal network bandwidth scale to gather data from clients on slow internet connections
  • A minor negative is that you always need at least 3 nodes for redundancy, which makes it less ideal for quick proof of concept type scenarios.
