    Amazon RDS

    Whether your organization is [an] early startup or large company AWS RDS fits in most of the cases such as 1. Easy to start, setup, used by [a] few or large developers team. 2. You can easily scale DB [instances] when your business required scaling as a startup or pay only for [users] to optimize cost as [a] large organization. 3. If your application requires SQL Server, Oracle, or Maria DB then you should use AWS RDS instance. 4. Your application requires better availability and security of data you can use AWS RDS instance. When AWS RDS is not recommended: 1. You need automatic scaling or capacity flexibility as request load gradually increases, better to use Amazon Aurora DB in this case.

    Oracle Autonomous Database

    Pro - Stability. Does everything anyone could need. If it's not there it will be on the next update. There is plenty of support for it. It's been around for a long time and it's reliable. The support is well documented and has a great reputation.Cons - Errors have been found in the documentation provided by Oracle with guidelines, etc. Oracles salespeople have a reputation of being obnoxious and condescending.

    Pros

    Amazon RDS

    • Setting up and managing a new RDS is just a matter of few clicks.
    • Maintaining different version of backup is just like a matter of turning on and off.
    • Automatic minor update of database.
    • Best restore:- You can even restore to 1 second before time.

    Oracle Autonomous Database

    • Robust - this product doesn't have a lot of downtime. It's less prone to errors than some other tools I've worked with.
    • Scalable - we can keep adding more things to it. We haven't hit any roadblocks when we've tried to do more with our database.
    Manish Garg | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Amazon RDS

    • You don't have os-level or hardware-level access to the system, so all your performance tuning needs to be done within your application or within the parameters of the database engine that amazon allows you to customize.
    • Customizations/Extensions to the database engines are impossible, as you don't have OS-level access.
    • Migrating in/out of RDS with zero down time can be relatively challenging from a configuration and execution perspective, depending on your infrastructure.

    Oracle Autonomous Database

    • There is no access to the physical host of the DB. This is expected from a managed DB. Everything must be done through the console or via API calls. This is a new learning curve for the DBAs.
    • Due to the lack of physical host access, certain features are not supported, such as Transportable tablespaces and Oracle LogMiner.
    • Certain special data types, (such as XMLType) are not allowed; be sure the app vendor certifies their product on this platform.

    Because it does exactly what we need: it enables us to manage our development and testing database environments in a quick and simple way without requiring support from a database administrators team.

    I've been using AWS Relational Database Services in several projects in different environments and from the AWS products, maybe this one together to EC2 are my favourite. They deliver what they promise. Reliable, fast, easy and with a fair price (in comparison to commercial products which have obscure license agreements).

    The product is continuously evolving and new features are added frequently. Management options through the OCI (Oracle Cloud Infrastructure) console and through the command line and API are being enhanced frequently.

    I have only had good experiences in working with AWS support. I will admit that my experience comes from the benefit of having a premium tier of support but even working with free-tier accounts I have not had problems getting help with AWS products when needed. And most often, the docs do a pretty good job of explaining how to operate a service so a quick spin through the docs has been useful in solving problems.

    Alternatives Considered

    Amazon RDS

    [Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS)] is much better to have everything in the cloud instead of having it on-premise once you can get all the benefits from Cloud. Of course, it can be a bit expensive if your company it's not growing anymore but if you check it in detail, you can see that the scalability of Cloud makes a lot of sense and also the reliability.

    Oracle Autonomous Database

    I found Oracle Autonomous Database very secure to store data and private information.I always feel secure with Oracle Autonomous Databases disaster recovery features.It is very effective to build applications for mobile and desktop devices lesser code using a low code development framework namely Oracle Application Express (ApEx).

    Return on Investment

    Amazon RDS

    • RDS has made sure that we don't spend a lot of time resolving issues that are not even remotely relevant to our business use-cases. It has thus made the life of DB administrators easy which allows them to explore other avenues as well.
    • Using RDS for around 10 years now, we have never had an issue BECAUSE of RDS. It is a very reliable service.

    Oracle Autonomous Database

    • Oracle Autonomous Database has a wide range of warehouses, which is competent and of high performance.
    • The transactional processing power that Oracle Autonomous Database outlines are completely important and digital.
    • The efficiency of Oracle Autonomous Database data encryption fosters security measures, a form that demands more threat detectors.
