Likelihood to Recommend

Amazon RDS

For a general-purpose workload, RDS is a perfect fit and works really well and takes care of a lot of stuff for you (replication, security, monitoring, scaling, storage, publishing logs to CloudWatch). If you have a read-intensive load though, you should probably think of switching to a NoSQL database service like DocumentDB or DynamoDB.

Tibero

I cannot imagine where Tibero will be less appropriate. For anyone looking for a reliable RDBM software, I suggest reviewing Tibero's data sheet for more details of its features and decide for yourself, if this software would work best for your organization.

Pros

Amazon RDS

  • 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.

Cons

Amazon RDS

  • My engineers would be able to speak more thoroughly to the cons. I have only benefited from the fruit of their labor. I can say that, from a Project Management standpoint (interfacing with RDS via a PostgreSQL client and my dashboards), it has only performed well so far.

  • Working with Tibero for the last 5 years, I haven't noticed any issues so far.

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).

Amazon support is always top-notch. You get immediate feedback on whatever you are working through and given several resources on how to resolve them. Additionally, they are able to do some things for us, meaning we don't need to have a database administrator around at all time to implement their suggestions.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon RDS

Our other application components are all hosted within Amazon's systems already, and the tight coupling of RDS with the security groups and virtual private cloud offerings made locking down privacy and security much easier than integrating with an outside provider. The deeper support for Postgres also made it easier to make the decision for Amazon as that database was higher on our wish list.

As for features it's more or less the same with lower licensing fees, if you are running on either of the bigger DB providers and you want to port over your data they can do it for you. We chose it after reviewing about 10 different DB providers but didn't want to go with open source.

Return on Investment

Amazon RDS

  • RDS makes projects much easier. Set up time is decreased, and it is very easy to create and destroy databases as needed for testing.
  • The ability to call AWS tech support for database-level issues and advice is a money saver if you don't have a high-end DBA on your team or need someone else to set things up with a little assistance.
  • It is cheap and easy to grant secure access to your RDS instances to other companies or divisions of your company that use AWS.

Tibero

  • Because Tibero's licensing and support fees are half of Oracle's, we were able to allocate the extra budget to other departments that were in greater need for those funds.
