    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.

    JBoss EAP is subscription based/open source platform. It's very reliable and great for deploying high transaction Java based enterprise applications. It integrates well with third party components like mod_cluster and supports popular Java EE web-based frameworks such as Spring, Angular JS, jQuery Mobile, and Google Web Toolkit.

    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

    • MOD_CLUSTER integration. JBoss EAP integrates pretty well with mod_cluster. This is an intelligent load balancer especially useful in highly clustered environments.
    • Supports enterprise-grade features such as high availability clustering, distributed caching, messaging etc.
    • Supports deployment in on-premise, virtual and hybrid cloud environments.

    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.

    • Jboss CLI is a great tool but we had trouble using it to get values that are displayed on Jboss GUI. It also has limitations parsing the applications.xml files and we had to use a mix of jboss-cli and linux bash commands to automate certain application administrative tasks.
    • JBoss doesn't really provides performance tuning recommendations. It would have been nice if it could learn from the current demand vs current settings for things like connection pool, server configurations, garbage collection etc.

        We are planning to migrate away from Jboss to Tomcat as Jboss has shown not interest in supporting OSGi which is heavily used at our shop

        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.

        JBoss overall is easy to use. The installation and deployment of applications are quick. Documentations and support are also readily available.

        Red Hat

        Usually, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is good at performance and well suited for high traffic Java EE-based applications, but we have faced hard times performance tuning it for our specific needs. The product would be nicer if they would add a performance diagnostic and recommendations feature to it.

        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.

        We selected JBoss because of compatibility with EJB's. We currently are trying to reduce our footprint and will highly consider using Tomcat.

        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).

        • Improved delivery timelines due to easy out of the box setup.
        • It is a cheap subscription-based/open-source Java EE-based application server. This reduces the overall cost of delivery.
