Jelastic

In case you want a cheaper PaaS that may be available in your country (Brazil, in my case), you may give Jelastic a try. There are some other strong competitors for the PaaS scenario with free versions, but the paid versions are far more expensive.

Pros

  • S3 provides possibly the most easily scalable cloud storage service on the planet. It feels as though it's been custom build from day 1 with company growth in mind - something any healthy business will surely appreciate.
  • The intricate system of S3 servers across the globe is a great feature for anyone conducting any sort of international business. You get to choose where your data is stored and, as we all know from bounce rates, every millisecond of load time can be the difference between making or losing a sale.
  • Pulling data is another feature we use quite often and it honestly works flawlessly every single time we have to pull anything.

  • Easy to use, the interface guides you to create your application.
  • Custom SSL certificate. You can upload your own certificates and it will configure them for you.

Cons

  • It's genuinely hard to fault S3 so I'll have to resort to nitpicking but their main interface is quite bland, still super easy to use and navigate, just bland.
  • Contacting their support can be quite cumbersome as every ticket is sent through the always cumbersome Amazon hierarchy of internal bureaucracy (similar to Seller Central) but it's not the worst system in the world by any means.
  • At this point, I'm almost out of critiques - after all, it's what huge digital entertainment companies like Netflix rely on to make a living. That being said, there's always room for improvement and perhaps creating more servers around the world would decrease their minimal send and retrieval times.

  • SSH is still tricky to use. You have to log in to a gateway and go to an option menu to get logged in. Sometimes it was not available or too slow.
  • Some errors are not clear enough. It took some time to understand which files I had to upload to get my custom SSL certificates working.

Alternatives Considered

We chose S3 over Azure Storage because it integrated very easily and quickly with our existing AWS environment. S3 pricing was also cheaper than Azure at the time. S3 is also more mature and has been on the market 10 years longer than Azure Storage. Amazon also offers a higher SLA with S3 than Microsoft.

The price of Jelastic for the paid version (considering SSL) is better.

Return on Investment

  • Interaction between Ruby on Rails and the Fog/Carrierwave Gem to upload images is a costly, manual process for the team

  • It has powered my project since its creation. It's a small project but I did not have any problems until now.
