Amazon Web Services

Amazon Web Services is well suited for companies that don't want to have deal with physical infrastructure and want a high level of security and availability. In most cases Amazon Web Services is a great option for most, but may not be an option if you have met the tipping point of physical cost vs. Amazon Web Services cost. It may end up being a better option in the long run to manage the infrastructure yourself if the cost per hour of Amazon Web Services is greater than what you can provide if your level of availability is equal to or greater than Amazon Web Services.

Caspio

For a quick platform to be able to capture, edit, show data at a very reasonable price it is great. Caspio allows the data be shared across the web, giving everybody access or to only some by using the authentication feature. The ability to work from anywhere with just a computer and online access is a really great feature.

Pros

  • Cost: AWS's free tier enables developers to try out the service with no commitment. The resiliency of the AWS infrastructure is a great value-add.
  • Ubiquity: AWS networks have the availability and elasticity which not only meet the needs of developers, but also end users.
  • AWS is an E2E solution for deploying, managing, and continuously integrating software development.

  • Caspio is an online database platform. It allows one to create multiple tables and views to be stored via the web. Tables can be configured to not only hold data but also to hold files like Word docs and images.
  • Caspio is great at creating online forms and reports. It allows the user to create forms to capture, update data, whether it's password protected or just a simple form.
  • As a database platform, one can create online tables and forms linking multiple tables and views to each other. I would say it is the Microsoft Access of the online platforms.
  • The system is very easy. Wizards allow one to create forms, tables, and datapages. Since the platform is online, you may access your database anywhere.

Cons

  • Standardize service availability across all regions. Not all services are available everywhere.
  • Service limits can be difficult to manage
  • Isolating teams within a shared account is almost impossible due to inconsistent security policies/features.

  • Reports are one of the features that I think could be fixed. At the moment it will show you the raw data itself but we would like the ability to summarize that data for reports.

This is the only hosting solution I am using and I am not gonna look for any other because I am used to it and it meets my requirements: easy to use without compromising on control I have over my infrastructure. Also, I do live variety of AWS services.

Easy to use/learning curve. If you are new to the use of cloud storage, AWS is your entry point. If you have experience in that field, AWS is the way to go.

Availability is very good, with the exception of occasional spectacular outages.

Performance

AWS does not provide the raw performance that you can get by building your own custom infrastructure. However, it is often the case that the benefits of specialized, high-performance hardware do not necessarily outweigh the significant extra cost and risk. Performance as perceived by the user is very different from raw throughput.

The API's were very well documented and was Janova's main point of entry into the services.

Alternatives Considered

Azure is the other product that we have used for some of our clients. In certain places Azure was very competitively priced and clients chose to go with Azure as a platform. Billing by the minute is definitely a competitive advantage in certain cases. AWS pricing structures took some time for me to understand but it worked out well in the end.

Microsoft is a really great tool for databases though its biggest drawback is that it is really difficult to share the data via the web. Caspio helps by not only mimicking databases, views (similar to queries) and forms for entering data, but also allows for online reports. Creating web pages and being able to place it within our own website pages is great.

Return on Investment

  • Some campaigns needed dynamic scaling and setting up a massive infrastructure to meet the demands would have been impossible if it was not for the AWS services that we used. The traffic volume was enormous and AWS did an awesome job within the budgets we had in mind.

  • For over 10 years Caspio has been a great tool by allowing our users to retrieve data they have submitted in the past to update data to be used for current surveys.
  • The system is used by over 80% of our users instead of the usual online forms.
  • Fees have always been low, especially helpful for a small department of 3 members. Always reliable and affordable.
