    AWS Batch

    I would only recommend using AWS Batch in a situation where using AWS Lambda isn't an option with the organization. AWS Batch is a very slow software in comparison to relying on. Often your Batch data will keep on expiring while Batch is still running. For someone with quick response time requirements in automation, AWS Batch is not an ideal tool.

    VMware Cloud Director

    For a CSP it's the best choice. For internal uses, even in presence of different business units, it's not so easy and flexible to manage. It assures a high level of multitenancy, often not needed for internal purposes. But it could be used in this case, just not created for these purposes. Network management is great.

    Pros

    AWS Batch

    • S3 amount of files
    • Easy to share files to other sites
    • Like that the files and folders can be open and public or completely private
    • I like that you can have double or mirroring in different Data Centers for Data Recovery

    VMware Cloud Director

    • The advantage to using vCloud Director is it a cloud based application allowing access anywhere. I have the ability to make changes to our virtual environment without being in the office or using a vpn.
    • The vCloud Director provides a lot of the same features as vSphere.

    Cons

    AWS Batch

    • It would be nice if the website has embedded little videos for how to do things, since I had to first go to YouTube to see how to figure things out.
    • The words are very techy- which I don't mind too much considering the diversity of the apps and the value, but that does not work for a lot of regular solopreneurs who don't come from the tech world.

    VMware Cloud Director

    • It is not good for end users or customers to use. The UI is geared more towards VMware admins.
    • There is somewhat of a learning curve to it, you have to think through and plan out how you want to set your OVDC and PVDCs up. It takes a lot of architecture experience.
    • Once you built workloads in vCloud director, it's real difficult to take them out or manage them directly in vSphere. This is a huge pain.

    Like most VMware, the vCloud Director support is not the best.

    Alternatives Considered

    AWS Batch

    We wanted to start everything on a scale & with fewer resources to manage the underlying infrastructure.

    Hyper-V is built on a Windows platform that includes services not needed for the virtual environment adding overhead. With vCloud I'm not required to maintain a host OS or it's updates. The requirement to maintain storage devices is no longer needed with vCloud as well.

    Return on Investment

    AWS Batch

    • Able to Schedule regular copy of S3 Instances regularly.
    • Better security of data.
    • Long waiting times resulted in hurdles while autoscaling.

    VMware Cloud Director

    • Time to market = 0 means profits almost immediate after investment
    • Customers trust the VMware brand more than any other
    • Elasticity: allowing the company to choose the best HW in the lower layer
