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.

Cloudera Enterprise Data Hub

A really small, sandbox installation might be better off without Cloudera Enterprise at the start. If you subsequently move to Cloudera Enterprise, the benefits will be very obvious

We are almost entirely satisfied with the service. In order to move off it, we'd have to build for ourselves many of the services that AWS provides and the cost would be prohibitive. Although there are cost savings and security benefits to returning to the colo facility, we could never afford to do it, and we'd hate to give up the innovation and constant cycle of new features that AWS gives us.

Being a student I just evaluated it in lab, so not sure when I would buy, but would be potential buyer in future.

The management console is the weak part of the service in my experience. It is adequate but slow.

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

We looked into other server hosts, but the cost was out of our budget. We were quoted a monthly fee of $500 to $750, plus an initial fee of over $1,000. AWS made the most financial sense as well as other reviews and recommendations

I have not evaluated any similar products, and in fact, don't know of any direct competitor. Amazon's Redshift has a similar spirit.

Return on Investment

  • Profitability: We've a team of very hands-on engineers and what they would need to build what we now get from AWS, would not have had the level of profitability we get with AWS. At first, our inhouse team really wanted this work inhouse. Now, they're very grateful it's not. Billing is always accurate and automated with full justification in every report. We can plan our growth far more accurately.
  • Flexibility: We can onboard new customers in an instant. We can give greater service levels to our current customers, just as quickly and dynamically too, if their needs change.
  • Ease of use: seriously, one or two phone calls is pretty much all we've ever had to make when our needs change and it's been that easy for the last 4 or 5 years now.
