If you need to deploy Docker containers, Amazon Fargate is a very good fit. It integrates very well with other AWS services like RDS, EFS, and Secrets manager. You can have a very robust application using those services. In case you have many containers to deploy, it is however more expensive
that if you use other services like ECS or EKS, since they allow you to
share the same infrastructure to deploy multiple containers.

Cons

Amazon AWS

No answers on this topic

IBM

  • The software appears to be geared for a no-programming approach, which implies that making changes is more difficult.
  • The user base is small making it monotonous and difficult to come up with new methods.
  • The number of rankings is not as large as competitors.
  • The admin end is poorly designed, as they are unable to receive and respond to client feedback.

    Usability

    Amazon AWS

    It's a very practical service to use. If you need to deploy any application with a Database, disk storage, you're pretty much set.
    Everything around that can be taken care of using other AWS services. Like secrets manager, certificate manager, RDS ...
    And the CI/CD part is also very easy to setup, you only need on AWS CLI command to trigger a deployment, and done !

    Support Rating

    Amazon AWS

    AWS provides different support tiers. They are usually very reactive and are able to help solve the issues very quickly.
    As for everything, the higher the support tier you get, the better and faster support you get.
    If you're also a part of big company, you probably have solution architects at your disposal to help you with any inqueries.

    As with most IBM products the ongoing support for IBM Power Virtual Server is solid and consistent. IBM provides a clear roadmap for receiving support of their products. Both voice and online response is offered. It is obvious that IBM has the internal systems and culture to maintain support functions. This starts from the initial support call to the problem analysis and continues through the problem resolution. Documentation and communication are consistent within this process.

    The success of IBM's power system is largely dependent on security. Its reliability is a crucial component in its widespread use, as it enables complex businesses such as banking and insurance to operate with greater security and less downtime. This system has a low power complexity and utilization, and failures are easier to track thanks to continuous logs.

    Contract Terms and Pricing Model

    Amazon AWS

    Pricing and billing of AWS Fargate is loosely tied to your exisiting AWS billing. You're unlikely to only use Fargate in your AWS subscription, so you get billed for everything alltoghter.
    Fargate is naturally a bit more expensive that usuel docker services, but with careful planning and architecturing, you can have a very manageable cost.
    You can also rely on Saving plans to reduce your bill.
