Amazon S3

S3 is very cheap and is easy to set up if you are already on AWS. It integrates with virtually every AWS service and has very good documentation in terms of setting it up, implementing distributed web applications, and operationally keeping your costs low. If you have data that has complex business logic and workflows, S3 is able to support various requirements with lifecycle policies. S3 also has different storage tiers that are priced at different rates to enable business continuity and allow mission critical applications the SLA's they demand while pushing non-mission critical applications to lower tiers.S3 may not be suitable if you are on another cloud platform like GCE or Azure. In that case, it might be better to use their distributed file system. However, S3 has an open API and is able to work in a hybrid-cloud environment if need be.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

We don't feel confident enough in OCI to put our production environment in there yet. It may be well suited however we need to do our due diligence. Also as a government agency we need to ensure that our data is never located outside of the US at any time. We do feel it will be well suited for our PUM, Demo, Dev, Test and staging environments in the cloud. Our strategy is to get our staff working on more high value tasks and offload the mundane things on the OCI environment. We may even outsource our server patching. The additional items that come in the cloud purchase make it particularly appealing. These items include data masking, goldengate and the backup and recovery services.

Cons

Amazon S3

  • I would like an in console file viewer instead of having to download the file to see its content
  • Speed of download has increased a lot in the past year, though still a room for improvement
  • Apart from storage, a few transactions are charged as well

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

  • IAAS (Infrastructure as a Service) is not a customizable solution. It's a pre-configured system which sometimes fits in customer expectation but largely differs in diversity.
  • More improvements are being worked on by Oracle to improve cloud computing, Oracle systems do not share computing resources and need to be scaled in those areas.
  • Third, Oracle private clouds are not delivered “as-a-service”. This solution is a rental which can be modified, but is nonetheless bound by hardware and software parameters, for a specified rental period.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon S3

Amazon S3 has far more features, capabilities, and geographic locations. The competitor is also not fully compliant with the requirements of some clients.

Amazon AWS is missing features like data mining, table partitioning.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

  • We have an internal chargeback for infrastructure and we anticipate the cost factor will be neutral.
  • We have been impressed with the provisioning aspect of OCI and expect it to save on data center staff.
  • The scalability of OCI has been a timesaver for our environments.
