Amazon RDS

If you're operating within the Amazon universe of cloud computing, it's almost a no-brainer to utilize [Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS)]. RDS is well suited for probably a majority of applications that are candidates to host on a cloud computing platform as it reduces overall management and complexity of your system.However, if you're doing a lot of data exporting/importing using tools that write to/read from the disk on the server, you may have challenges integrating RDS, as you have no access to the underlying host.

Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse

II would recommend Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse to someone looking to fully automate the transferring of data especially in a warehouse scenario though I can see the elasticity of the suite that is offered and can see it is applicable in other scenarios not just warehouses.

Pros

Amazon RDS

  • For engineers with experience managing databases, setup is simple. And for the uninitiated, the RDS console interface becomes intuitive with some practice.
  • Not having the maintain the underlying infrastructure is a great benefit of using RDS. Patching and backups can be scheduled from the console and from then on are pretty much automated.
  • Right-sizing the DB instance to perform optimally with an application can be a very simple procedure. If a DB instance is not struggling to keep up, the instance size can be scaled up with just a few clicks.
  • Baseline configurations are generally sane for most RDS instances. This allows novice developers and engineers to get the most out of the service without being a complete database administrator.

Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse

  • Very easy and fast to load data into the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse
  • Exceptionally fast retrieval of data joining 100 million row table with a billion row table plus the size of the database was reduced by a factor of 10 due to how Oracle store[s] and organise[s] data and indexes.
  • Flexibility with scaling up and down CPU on the fly when needed, and just stop it when not needed so you don't get charged when it is not running.
  • It is always patched and always available and you can add storage dynamically as you need it.

Cons

Amazon RDS

  • There should be a proper listing of all parameter groups alongside the instances that they are attached to. This would help to see which instances would be affected if a parameter group is changed.
  • RDS should allow SUPER privilege to the master user. A few advanced tasks(like getting a physical backup using MySQL Enterprise Backup) fail because SUPER privilege is not available for the master user.
  • A few parameters are not modifiable in the parameter groups and the access to the server filesystem is not given. This should not be the case because as an advanced user, you might want to understand things a little deeper.

Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse

  • Level of integration or compatibility to connect it to different applications can be improved
  • The support service is slow
  • The issue is with the record number limitation of not being able to bring back more than one million records or not being able to export larger datasets to Excel

Because
  • It is really simple to provision and configure.
  • Does not require continous attention from the DBA, autonomous features allows the database to perform most of the regular admin tasks without need for human intervention.
  • Allows to integrate multiple data sources on a central data warehouse, and explode the information stored with different analytic and reporting tools.

The vast majority of things you'd want to do in Amazon Relational Database Service are simple to accomplish and remarkably consistent across database engines. Pricing, scalability and monitoring are easy to configure. If I had one complaint, it's that database engine specific features are not well documented in AWS, requiring reading external documentation in order to use some database systems to the fullest. But for most use cases, the defaults available in AWS are simple, easy to use, and good enough.

The product is fairly straight forward to use, and staff as well as knowledge base is pretty good for getting answers you may need. The product is a great, flexible alternative to adding to one's own in-house infrastructure. It's especially useful for environments that you aren't sure about the overall long term need. Amazon Relational Database Service is great for environments that once you determine the long term need, can be maintained by Amazon.

Understanding Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is really simple, and Autonomous databases are even more. Using shared or dedicated infrastructure is one of the few things you need to consider at the moment of starting provisioning your Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon RDS

Amazon Relational Database Service will probably give you everything you need from a traditional manual DB setup, except everything is managed for you. The only downside is having to pay the premium for the service; however, the trade-off of not having to deal with the intricacies involved with database administration, make it well worth it for most.

Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse

Since our core was Oracle ERP Cloud, we were looking for a cloud data warehouse solution from Oracle. Autonomous Data Warehouse perfectly fit that need and has already provided us with the results. Our CSM and the readily available support helps us to resolve issues and find solutions at no extra cost. The tool comes with APEX and Machine Learning developer tools that add more value to what we are planning to invest in future.

Return on Investment

Amazon RDS

  • Switching back to RDS from Redshift has made my BI Dashboards much more performant (though again, we're not dealing with data in the magnitudes that justify the Redshift toolset).
  • It has decreased our tech debt. Engineering has been much more straight forward.
  • Our uptime has been improved by removing unnecessary data migration processes.

Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse

  • With OBIEE we had a limitation on the license, with OAC and Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse, since it is pay-per-use services, it significantly reduced the cost.
  • the resource requirement was also on smaller side, as the maintenance activity primarily was done by the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse itself.
