Amazon Web Services

AWS is a very scalable Platform as a Service (PaaS) -- making it usefull for all sizes. With AWS the failover model can be complicated in terms of selecting the right option for you. Failover within a distribution center is one level, while zone level fail over is a larger one. Be sure to understand your capability needs and discuss with AWS these different choices.

Oracle Database Cloud Service

It is very well best suited in place where people are using Oracle Data Warehouse and Oracle application tools, and also where they are planning to move to cloud platform.

  • Easy to implement and set-up services in oracle cloud platform.
  • Easy for maintenance like applying patches, auto back-up on cloud storage and local storage.
  • Easy to scale up the core CPU & data storage for Database Server.
  • Secured SSH connection and very well managed to control access on the database as service.

Cons

  • AWS has a record of occasional severe outages, which has a cascading effect on the large number of high-profile services that now run on its infrastructure. Despite the spectacular nature of these outages, it is unlikely that a self-managed data center would achieve significantly better uptime.
  • It is also the case that AWS outages can be mitigated with effective use of multiple deployment 'zones' and regions. This is something that any mission-critical application should be doing anyway as part of disaster recovery preparations.

  • It will be good to have UI control based auto backup options like retention of database backup, auto delete DB back-up.
  • Auto Extend Data Storage on existing local storage process needs to be little improved, it's not smooth to create the extension of data storage on local.
  • There should be some easy and better way of sending the DB monitor alerts (like Tablespace exceed,Index Space is full, High Performance Query on DB) to specific required email address.

Janova was built utilizing the EC2 infrastructure and with Amazon's cost continuing to drop and with the capability to be billed hourly there is no reason to switch to a different platform.

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.

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 would prefer the oracle database as service where my complete implementation is on Oracle Cloud Platform and as BI Implementation where datawarehouse is built on oracle database.

Return on Investment

  • We've saved over $10,000 in the 2 years we've worked with AWS. We no longer have to pay to upgrade our internal server, we have no downtime. We no longer depend on our developer to come and 'fix' the server when it fails.

  • Yes it saved the time/effort for manually installing and set-up of Oracle DB.
  • It also saved efforts/time on patches, db back-up process.
  • Now easy to scale up the Oracle DB as service without any long process of procuring the additional hardware and set-up.
