Amazon Relational Database Service is great when you need a Database solution that can work for you very fast. It is also a great solution when you need a system that can scale to handle very large amounts of data. You can get set up with a complex, large database eco-system in minutes/hours, and have the best security and backups scheduled. The alternative to doing this would typically be hiring one or more very experienced database professionals for not just the implementation, but also on staff to handle the periodic maintenance necessary.

SAP HANA Express Edition

For huge data set with some fuzzy uncommon and unusual search kind of features is less appropriate like in many places for finance related stuff from the developer point of view. Its very well suited to create a POC for demo purpose even though for production use purpose, the coding with HANA is really fast and quick resulting turn with an expected format

Pros

  • End-to-end management of your database -- including configuration, handling security, and maintenance.
  • Offers compatibility with many (and the most popular) database technologies -- including but not limited to MySQL, Postgres, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle DB.
  • Makes backups and replications very easy, which is one of the toughest things to do effectively.

  • The best part I would recommend is the real-time analytic reports
  • As compare to traditional DBs, this edition is tremendous faster, easier, quick to learn
  • Very good for our data load in few of the traditional DBs, with which we use our SAP Lumira, Web IDE, Also its flexible to integrate with 3rd party software like Tableau
  • Personally, I like the best part is can load on our personal laptop, desktop with no special appliance restriction like most HANA DBs does, easy to setup and quick in resulting in real-time results.

Cons

  • The logging options aren't as good as you would have if you managed your database yourself.
  • Restricted rights and permissions. Because you are using a managed service, you don't have 100% of all the capabilities you would traditionally have when managing a database yourself.
  • Because you are using a managed service, that's meant to do a lot for you and make things easy, you are paying a premium price. Some tasks are very simple (for even standard software developers, not even for a DBA). If you don't need to scale and aren't in a rush, the price might not be worth it.

  • I would be more than happy if normal users like me which work on test data can get the system of min 64GB at no charge.. :)
  • One of feature I would like to behave with it is smart data integration,

Alternatives Considered

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.

HANA Express Edition will always sticks up against above traditional DB due to its tremendous features like, real-time, in-memory column store DB, predictive analytics, graphical features, integration with 3rd party tools, best analytics, quick and easy setup, more advance DW features, with compress kind of DB, and many more which are not available easily with above listed DBs with

  • The security and back-ups offered help make my company's software solutions Enterprise-grade, which is necessary in today's world.

  • As per my current usages I have not yet to come across much with a negative impact, but for sure Positive impact is consultant, developers are being got addicted to using this Edition of HANA due to its user friendly trending features and also the best part is with newer versions we are getting more and more features which is definitely a positive impact
