Amazon RDS

Amazon RDS is well suited if you need a highly-available, cloud-hosted, scalable database for websites or web applications. It can grow to serve as many queries as you need (at a cost) and is easy to configure. That being said, RDS can get expensive quickly depending on your use. If you're hosting a simple website or blog, it would be cheaper to stand up a database inside the EC2 instance powering the application. If you're not working with a lot of data, RDS can potentially be overkill for your needs.

Oracle Database Cloud Service

It is very well best suited in place where people are using Oracle Data Warehouse and Oracle application tools, and also where they are planning to move to cloud platform.

Pros

  • Zero manual configuration, you can get an instance up and running in just 5 minutes.
  • High scalability (RDS simplifies setting up master-slave cluster) and reliability (Multi AZ replications).
  • Automatic backups so that we don't have to worry about losing data.

  • Easy to implement and set-up services in oracle cloud platform.
  • Easy for maintenance like applying patches, auto back-up on cloud storage and local storage.
  • Easy to scale up the core CPU & data storage for Database Server.
  • Secured SSH connection and very well managed to control access on the database as service.

Cons

  • Hard to debug performance issues at times since it is a managed service and we don't have all privileges.

  • It will be good to have UI control based auto backup options like retention of database backup, auto delete DB back-up.
  • Auto Extend Data Storage on existing local storage process needs to be little improved, it's not smooth to create the extension of data storage on local.
  • There should be some easy and better way of sending the DB monitor alerts (like Tablespace exceed,Index Space is full, High Performance Query on DB) to specific required email address.

Alternatives Considered

Automated snap-shotting every 24 hours is, again something that I could just set up in minutes with a few clicks, though we also backup on cron jobs to elsewhere, and, because of our industry we have a HUGE "forensic logs" that initially live in the database but get archived off every seven days. (We literally log every single API call between our front-end and our application servers, and the data structures that the APIs return.

I would prefer the oracle database as service where my complete implementation is on Oracle Cloud Platform and as BI Implementation where datawarehouse is built on oracle database.

Return on Investment

  • Combined with metabase, RDS has enabled numerous non-technical members of our team to run and share sophisticated queries.
  • The engineering time spent on worrying about RDS has been minimal. We set it up once over a year ago and haven't touched it since.
  • We're relying on metabase and RDS more for operations-related dashboards, because it's generally faster to iterate on a simple query than a complex web application.

  • Yes it saved the time/effort for manually installing and set-up of Oracle DB.
  • It also saved efforts/time on patches, db back-up process.
  • Now easy to scale up the Oracle DB as service without any long process of procuring the additional hardware and set-up.
