AWS Elastic Beanstalk

With [AWS] Elastic Beanstalk, you can interact by using the Elastic Beanstalk console, the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), a high-level CLI designed specifically for Elastic Beanstalk. [AWS] Elastic Beanstalk can be deployed quickly and provides a lot of functionality that would otherwise take a longer time to set up and maintain

IBM Cloud Object Storage

Cloud object storage is well suited for storing static assets, things like images, videos, music clips, or any other type of unstructured large data blobs. It is especially suited for use cases when users need storage across different regions and time zones.
It is potentially not suited for cases when there is large amounts of read and write at a very high speed.

Pros

AWS Elastic Beanstalk

  • AWS Elastic Beanstalk was easy to implement, we only had to insert the application code to have it up and running in a few minutes. This helps us to launch company campaigns for different areas such as marketing, commercial and human resources.
  • It has a fast learning curve, since the training material of the platform is public on the manufacturer's portal, furthermore it is easy to interact and intuitive for developers.
  • The productivity of the equipment is optimized since they are not worrying about preparing the platform or infrastructure, they only have to attend to what is required by the application and its operation and this maintenance.
  • The indicators and metrics that it has, ensure that the application cannot be saturated and have a performance problem, with AWS Elastic Beanstalk the application can scale resources when needed automatically.

IBM Cloud Object Storage

  • Highly secure way of storing and sharing data as it needs authorization to be accessible.
  • Pre-built API calls and code snippers make accessing data via secure APIs a breeze.
  • Easy to migrate data to and from data storage
  • Ability to manage large amounts of data with considerable speed

Cons

AWS Elastic Beanstalk

  • Limited to the frameworks and configurations that AWS supports. There is no native way to use Elastic Beanstalk to deploy a Go application behind Nginx, for example.
  • It's not always clear what's changed on an underlying system when AWS updates an EB stack; the new version is announced, but AWS does not say what specifically changed in the underlying configuration. This can have unintended consequences and result in additional work in order to figure out what changes were made.

IBM Cloud Object Storage

  • While this platform has been around, it does take some getting used. The interface could be refined. My Firefox Browser automatically closed when selecting some options and creating new objects as an example.
  • The tutorials are a bit outdated in comparison to the screens shown. We understand the system is constantly improving. The tutorials should reflect the changes in the interface.
  • There are many pre-trained models. However, it is not clear as to how those models were trained, what bias may exist in the training data, and how a user could improve those models unless we simply have to build our own.

As our technology grows, it makes more sense to individually provision each server rather than have it done via beanstalk. There are several reasons to do so, which I cannot explain without further diving into the architecture itself, but I can tell you this. With automation, you also loose the flexibility to morph the system for your specific needs. So if you expect that in future you need more customization to your deployment process, then there is a good chance that you might try to do things individually rather than use an automation like beanstalk.

It is a great tool to manage your applications. You just need to write the codes, and after that with one click, your app will be online and accessible from the internet. That is a huge help for people who do not know about infrastructure or do not want to spend money on maintaining infrastructure.

As I described earlier it has been really cost effective and really easy for fellow developers who don't want to waste weeks and weeks into learning and manually deploying stuff which basically takes month to create and go live with the Minimal viable product (MVP). With AWS Beanstalk within a week a developer can go live with the Minimal viable product easily.

I have been working in IT sector for more than 15 years. I have worked with various vendors. IBM's sales team, support team have been really helpful. After we start to use their product, their UX design team also contacted us to get feedback from us. They are really interested about our experience.

- Do as many experiments as you can before you commit on using beanstalk or other AWS features.- Keep future state in mind. Think through what comes next, and if that is technically possible to do so.- Always factor in cost in terms of scaling.- We learned a valuable lesson when we wanted to go multi-region, because then we realized many things needs to change in code. So if you plan on using this a lot, factor multiple regions.

IBM's professional service for migrating data and implementing new cloud environment was perfect. They started to help us before we begin to bring together all data such as how can it could be best to transfer all data without problems. During the migration they watched all the process closely to prevent any failure. Lastly, after the migration, they gave us trainings on implementation.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Elastic Beanstalk

We also use Heroku and it is a great platform for smaller projects and light Node.js services, but we have found that in terms of cost, the Elastic Beanstalk option is more affordable for the projects that we undertake. The fact that it sits inside of the greater AWS Cloud offering also compels us to use it, since integration is simpler.We have also evaluated Microsoft Azure and gave up trying to get an extremely basic implementation up and running after a few days of struggling with its mediocre user interface and constant issues with documentation being outdated. The authentication model is also badly broken and trying to manage resources is a pain. One cannot compare Azure with anything that Amazon has created in the cloud space since Azure really isn't a mature platform and we are always left wanting when we have to interface with it.

Dropbox, Google Drive, S3 Buckets on AWS, Pcloud, Mega, Box, iCloud, OneDrive I have tried most available cloud storage providers and IBM is by far the most sophisticated, adaptable and affordable option. The onboarding and the ease of use of the Cloud Object Storage is the experience I want to share with my network.

Return on Investment

AWS Elastic Beanstalk

  • till now we had not Calculated ROI as the project is still evolving and we had to keep on changing the environment implementation
  • it meets our purpose of quick deployment as compared to on-premises deployment
  • till now we look good as we also controlled our expenses which increased suddenly in the middle of deployment activity
Sandeep Singh | TrustRadius Reviewer

IBM Cloud Object Storage

  • Prior to cloud storage, we used on-premises storage devices to store and backup, and sometimes it was a headache to scale up or down the storage according to our needs. With the introduction of Cloud Object Storage, we don't have to worry about scaling.
  • The uptime is also improved a lot after the introduction of Cloud Object Storage in our organization
  • Obviously, it's a very cost-effective way to store and archive data.
