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.

Jelastic

In case you want a cheaper PaaS that may be available in your country (Brazil, in my case), you may give Jelastic a try. There are some other strong competitors for the PaaS scenario with free versions, but the paid versions are far more expensive.

  • The ability to get server notifications
  • Ease of use within the AWS GUI

  • Easy to use, the interface guides you to create your application.
  • Custom SSL certificate. You can upload your own certificates and it will configure them for you.

Cons

  • Service Availability has been ok, yet a couple large outages brought down the service for "too long"
  • Service Availability is worse than some competitors based on known metrics

  • SSH is still tricky to use. You have to log in to a gateway and go to an option menu to get logged in. Sometimes it was not available or too slow.
  • Some errors are not clear enough. It took some time to understand which files I had to upload to get my custom SSL certificates working.

Support at AWS is great! The cost is low. Their business model is sound. They tend to benefit us.

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

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 also looked at Rackspace but was attracted to AWS by the breadth of services available at comparable cost and reliability.

The price of Jelastic for the paid version (considering SSL) is better.

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.

  • It has powered my project since its creation. It's a small project but I did not have any problems until now.
