Amazon Web Services

Amazon Web Services is well suited for companies or organizations that need to run specific applications or virtual services on servers. The cost-per-server ratio makes this ideal for testing and live deployment scenarios. It is especially ideal for smaller to medium size IT development teams. If you are looking to just set up a website, for example, AWS may not be ideal unless you are having it custom built.

Hadoop

  • Less appropriate for small data sets
  • Works well for scenarios with bulk amount of data. They can surely go for Hadoop file system, having offline applications
  • It's not an instant querying software like SQL; so if your application can wait on the crunching of data, then use it
  • Not for real-time applications

Cons

  • Some resources parameters needed and prerequisites are difficult to understand, even with services that have well-known solutions that are easy to understand. For example, IAM and SSO solutions are more complicated and confusing than other services.
  • Generally, the User Experience is lacking WITHIN services is poor compared to other comparable platforms, however high-level access to the many services in AWS is good - as compared to other platforms.
  • Some services seem fragmented - as interrelated functions withing services don't seem to provide detail weel without some work. The billing area is an example of where getting and reviewing information is difficult.

  • Hadoop is not a relational database, but it has the ability to add modules to run sql-like queries like Impala and Hive.
  • Hadoop is open source and has many modules. It can be difficult without context to know which modules to leverage.

Hadoop is truly a distributed, open source cloud architecture which is capable of solving many problems to which there was no efficient solution before. I would definitely recommend trying it

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

I found it really useful during my academic projects. Data handling for large data sets was easy with Hadoop. It used to work really fast for bigger data sets. I found it reliable.

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.
