Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)

EC2 is elastic infrastructure. Your org does not have to invest in in-house data centers and staff to manage the hardware. AWS EC2 provides elastic cloud environment to run lot of this. Price is reasonable and AWS has lot of h/w s/w design pattern to design a reliable software application and run it in a resilient environment.

Red Hat Virtualization (RHV)

I believe it's an excellent solution for any scenario which requires virtualization. The only scenario where it might not be the best solution would be in building out a cloud infrastructure - you could certainly integrate RHEV for something like that but I think that either OpenStack or CloudStack might be a better solution for building cloud environments.

Cons

  • With the rise of tools such as Ansible it would be good to see AWS provide similar standardised tooling for EC2.

  • Native Ceph implementation is still missing
  • Only few software-defined Storage solutions are supported as storage backends
  • VM management (with virtual hardware, first boot etc.) is a bit fiddly

Alternatives Considered

Migration from Shared/Dedicated to a VPS was the next step in scaling up our eCommerce business platform to our customer demands. Amazon Web Services uptime and speed really met our expectations, but the costs were unpredictable and ended up being too high for us. In hindsight, I might have considered going straight to Dedicated or Collocated.

RHEV offers a decent GUI and many management features, such as an API.

Return on Investment

  • AWS has been a costly experiment, only from the surprise costs of hosting.

  • Reduced COTS costs to our organization due to the fact that it is open-source and has a freely available version (oVirt)
  • It has helped to bring technology quickly to our operational locations due to the ability to quickly automate and deploy it
  • It has enabled increased security to our enterprise due to the fact that it supports SELinux and allows us to customize the security posture of the infrastructure more easily
