Amazon Web Services

Each and every feature of this application is unique and is also efficient enough to help me to make suitable decisions for my company. Apart from this, if I talk about any concerns in it or any disastrous drawbacks then there are no words because this application is a lifesaver by every point of view without having anything to objectify. Moreover, this application provides me with the right of pre-built services, which benefit me when building custom cloud-based solutions.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

Compared to AWS Oracle is slightly more cost-effective, especially when the implementation doesn't require a wide range of services. The out of the box functionality is minimal compared to AWS or Azure. The technology is advanced especially when it comes to hosting the database. Customer support is not up to the mark compared to other vendors.

Pros

Amazon Web Services

  • AWS (Amazon Web Services) is not the easiest virtual service to set up but once you get the hang of it, it's fairly easy to install new instances (servers) and stop them. This is good for multiple reasons e.g we run multiple tests and live production servers for our different services. When we are done with one we can easily turn it off. The cost of the specifications on our virtual servers is only a fraction of the cost of what we would get locally or even on most traditional web services companies.
  • Amazon Web Services can be relatively cost efficient depending on where you are coming from. For our smaller organization, we felt the cost was worth it as other alternatives were not as affordable. The good thing with AWS is you only pay for what you use. If you want S3 (Simple Storage Service), you can pay for that. If you want to run a compute engine, EC2 can be paid for. At the end of the month, you get one bill based on your usage.
  • Because of our size as a company, AWS was easier to deploy compared to local dedicated solutions. All we had to do was take our development team through a simple 2-day course to get them on board. The ease of deployment means that we do not have to hire a specialist to deploy servers for us.

  • Reduction in cost as no scalability is required from an IT infrastructure side.
  • Pre-configured, engineered and simple in nature. This helps in reducing complexity on the IT side.
  • Less number of workers needed. Helps in effectively reducing man power and using comp.

Cons

Amazon Web Services

  • Better user support would be nice. It seems hard to find help when you need something specific from an Amazon employee.
  • Even though the prices are set up for enterprise they do seem high for small to mid level businesses, compared to other alternatives.
  • It would be nice to be able to have some type of DB security built in to the EC2s or as a default.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

  • Visual network designer would assistant in ensuring configuration matches intended design.
  • Automatic and seemless migration of VMs from OCI Classic to OCI would show that Oracle is taking cloud infrastructure service seriously.
  • Better, faster support. Traditional methods of filing SRs date back to the 1980s. Online realitime chat with support that know what they're doing is critical.
  • One click template image load from Oracle Cloud Marketplace is basic omission. It's available for oci-c but not oci.

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.

We find it quite easy to use. The only challenge is at the outset figuring out exactly what you need, given the large number of available services and options which could take a bit of time to get familiarised with and to decide on.

Performance

Amazon Web Services

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.

Amazon Web Services supported multiple times during initial infrastructure setup and helped to fix cluster related issues many times. Cloudformation to bring up infrastructure. Triggers like S3 file creation to automatically invoke lambda can automate big data jobs and makes operation on Big data easy.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Web Services

The maturity of AWS platform with integrations of large third-party vendors products through AWS marketplace and continuous launch of new services every year bring confidence to the users and also the ease of use and help from the large community when compared to other platform are the key primary reasons when deciding AWS.

Oracle Cloud is more cost efficient when compared to AWS, Google cloud, and Microsoft Azure. However, the enterprise user support is not up to the mark as compared to the others. Also, out of box features available are minimal and bare-bones.

Return on Investment

Amazon Web Services

  • We are able to test new ideas quickly using AWS hosting.
  • We are able to move from conceptual POC to fully hosted/architected cloud solution in minimal time.
  • We are able to build solutions that are 100% cloud as well as cloud-hybrid that orchestrate between our datacenters and the AWS cloud.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)

  • We have an internal chargeback for infrastructure and we anticipate the cost factor will be neutral.
  • We have been impressed with the provisioning aspect of OCI and expect it to save on data center staff.
  • The scalability of OCI has been a timesaver for our environments.
