Amazon SimpleDB

Well suited for: Games, Chat rooms, real time software like corporate events, marathons and so. Anytime and anywhere you could use a NoSQL DB you should think of SimpleDB.
As an arduous AWS user, Amazon SimpleDB easily integrates with EC2 and other AWS module; and if you are not an AWS user, you also have a fantastic tool that will solve the problem for which you are focused.

Oracle Autonomous Database

[Oracle Autonomous Database] is well suited if you already have an vested interest in the Oracle Cloud, since Autonomous Database will closely integrate into the Oracle Cloud. It will able to deliver faster, simplified, and consistent Oracle deployments. On the other hand, if you're currently using another Cloud provider such as AWS or Microsoft Azure and has no plan to change in the near-term, it's probably not a good idea to invest in the Oracle Cloud. Multi-Cloud integration strategies are often more costly and often have architectural design issues and/or incompatibilities that will be difficult to overcome.

Oracle Autonomous Database

  • Robust - this product doesn't have a lot of downtime. It's less prone to errors than some other tools I've worked with.
  • Scalable - we can keep adding more things to it. We haven't hit any roadblocks when we've tried to do more with our database.

Cons

Amazon SimpleDB

  • Non AWS environments
  • Strict storage limit (but well we have DynamoDB for storage issues)
Miguel Angel Merino Vega | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Autonomous Database

  • Autonomous DB integration with PeopleSoft. Issues noticed in the application.
  • More flexibility of user access to DB OS.
  • External connections using DB link is not possible .
  • Appears sophisticated as a majority of the controls reside with Oracle in terms of security, patching, maintenance, tuning. Less responsibility to a proficient DBA.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon SimpleDB

It integrates beautifully with AWS. In some projects we use SimpleDB while we use DynamoDB for others, according to the characteristics of the project. If the infrastructure is AWS, we always think of one of them.

Oracle Autonomous Database

Oracle Autonomous Database provides self administration features that are not available in previous databases like Oracle Database 12c and previous versions. So this is really good for the organizations to best use the resources and improve the performance of the applications. In addition, we don't have to think more about the versioning because this database will be take care of this.

Return on Investment

Amazon SimpleDB

  • Reduced database administration time
  • Reduced data model analysis time
  • Lower cost of resources in projects in general
Miguel Angel Merino Vega | TrustRadius Reviewer

Oracle Autonomous Database

  • Oracle Autonomous Database, and the safe harbor statements, are good, and when it comes to availability Oracle should control the number of bugs we hit every year, and they need to test all those bugs and the impacts before they release. They may be doing it today, but still, they need to invest their money into it. Even TDE is new and needs to improve a lot. The troubleshooting with TDE and skill level in Oracle needs to improve.
