Amazon AWS

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.

Oracle

This is very well suited to be used with web-based applications as it provides immense performance and is a centralized load-sharing solution. If you have multiple applications then this is an appropriate server as it can handle them easily and it is completely flexible and secure. For Images, the configuration part could be a bit hard to handle on this server.

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.

      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.

      Support Rating

      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.

      For as long as I have been with my company (and longer) we have leveraged WebLogic as our hosting/middleware platform of choice. I haven't actually had any in office experience with other alternatives. We've had an exclusivity contract with Oracle the whole time. Then again, Oracle Weblogic Suite is the industry standard for a reason.

      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).

      Oracle

      • Server startup can be controlled from the dashboard. In case a node is going down and has some issue, we can take that out or shut it down.
      • Connection pool management.
