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.

TIBCO ActiveSpaces

TIBCO ActiveSpaces is only suited in the company where Tibco suites have been already used, the license cost is not a concern, it is only required for data caching purposes and only works in the client/server mode for middle-sizes of data. If the expectation is data cache + distributed computation or embedded IMDG is also one requirement or the data cluster needs span multiple data centers, other light-weight OpenSource IMDG solutions should be considered

Pros

Amazon EC2 Auto Scaling

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

TIBCO ActiveSpaces

  • Tibco ActiveSpaces is an excellent caching tool. With good design, we can haven a efficient cache layer, that can respond to business needs in sub-seconds (milliseconds) rather than seconds / minutes to respond. This is specially useful for improving the efficiency of the services used in customer interactions.. like login, serving billing information, serving the customer's service usage and any other information customer is interested in accessing frequently.
  • System process can also use the ActiveSpaces . By caching the information frequently used by the system processes, the data cab be accessed more frequently. And without much disruptions.
  • If you are already using TIBCO tools, then ActiveSpaces is the right choice to use, as the product is well integrated with all the TIBCO Suite of products. ActiveSpaces integrates well with most common products like TIBCO BusinessWorks, TIBCO BusinessEvents etc.
  • ActiveSpaces can be easily deployed to a target (TIBCO) environment, with very little additional effort. Although there is an effort required to deploy them.
  • ActiveSpaces is supported by TIBCO BusinessWorks 5.13 and TIBCO BusinessWorks 6.x. Hence you are not forced to use any version of TIBCO BW, just because you have to use TIBCO ActiveSpaces.

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.

TIBCO ActiveSpaces

  • TIBCO ActiveSpaces Tuple-based data structure is not flexible enough to support customized native data objects.
  • There is no secondary index option.
  • Doesn't provide "predicate based In-Grid distributed search and result aggregation."
  • only can be used as data cache, the node's only contribute memory but can not use the data partition owner node's computation power to apply the distributed computation customized by the user.
  • Cross data center replication (geographically) is a pain.
  • Encounter the performance issue when the data volume is huge, even according to the architecture design, linear scaling up should not have that issue.

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.

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.

TIBCO ActiveSpaces

One biggest advantage of the Tibco ActiveSpaces is it's ease of integration with the TIBCO suite of products. Hence it is more suitable to TIBCO AS in conjunction with the TIBCO suite of products.All products could offer the same or different level of advantages. For the enterprises that are already using the AWS, then they will prefer to go for Amazon ElastiCache. Oracle In-Memory Cache might have the same level of advantage but the if you are already using the TIBCO suite of products like the BusinessWorks, then TIBCO ActiveSpaces seems to be the right option since there is an out of box plugin available for TIBCO AS and it is compatible with TIBCO products.Otherwise, lots of custom coding is required to use the Oracle or Amazon products as these plugins are not readily available and supported by TIBCO BW.

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

TIBCO ActiveSpaces

  • The cost of Tibco ActiveSpaces is quite high, while the added value it brought is not as we expected.
