    AWS Elastic Beanstalk

    AWS Elastic Beanstalk is well suited for [the] rapid development of applications that use standard compute platforms based on popular programming languages. So getting a Go, Python, Ruby, or Node.js app going in AWS Elastic Beanstalk will be easy. For non-standard applications, containers provide another option for using AWS Elastic Beanstalk. In either case, AWS Elastic Beanstalk is well suited for applications that are [self-contained]. AWS Elastic Beanstalk is also good for development or test environments that need a built-in deployment method.AWS Elastic Beanstalk is less appropriate for complex applications that rely on multiple AWS services. While deploying and running the base code might be easy to get going, it may be difficult to apply permissions and integrations with the other services.

    Splunk Enterprise

    Pros: Splunk is very well suited if you have multiple log sources of related data. All of them can be correlated and tasks can be automated based on the requirement. Other than alerts, Splunk can also run a specific script of your choice, based on some defined conditions. Cons: If you have a few logs but a large number of log sources, Splunk can be very expensive.
    Kuntal Das | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.
    Diego Gamez | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Splunk Enterprise

    • Real-time + Scheduled alerts - i-e you can set up alerts which are actively monitoring your logs
    • Pretty good response time for search results. With our key/value logging, Splunk makes it blazing fast to query the data.
    • Dashboards provide insights into historical data
    • Love how Splunk indexes all of the data and provides keys to search on
    Pooja Gada | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.
    Joshua Dickson | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Splunk Enterprise

    • At times some queries can run slowly if indices are not on a portion of the query you use.
    • Setup time initially can be difficult if your logs aren't stored in common locations or in a common way to write the log.
    • Ability to ingest logs from different locations without having to change code to put logs in a certain place (pro and con).
    • Searches can be a bit more difficult to look through if your log isn't pulled in a manner that is easy to read through splunk.

    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.

    We are using Splunk extensively in our projects and we have recently upgraded to Splunk version 6.0 which is quite efficient and giving expected results. We keep track of updates and new features Splunk introduces periodically and try to introduce those features in our day to day activities for improvement in our reporting system and other tasks.

    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.

    You can literally throw in a single word into Splunk and it will pull back all instances of that word across all of your logs for the time span you select (provided you have permission to see that data). We have several users who have taken a few of the free courses from Splunk that are able to pull data out of it everyday with little help at all.

    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.

    Splunk maintains a well resourced support system that has been consistent since we purchased the product. They help out in a timely manner and provide expert level information as needed. We typically open cases online and communicate when possible via e-mail and are able to resolve most issues with that method.

    - 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.

    AWS Elastic Beanstalk handles better in server autoscaling, load balancers,networking infrastructure for databases.It also helps in creating all of the architecture needed to run our apps and services.[AWS] Elastic Beanstalk also handles all of the provisioning, scaling, and implementation of the application stack unlike other competitors without a fuss.

    Splunk Enterprise

    I wanted to learn a new language that I can quickly master and implement. Splunk is easy, fun to use and best of all, it can be developed in hours not days or weeks. Splunk is fundamentally a programming language that is minimal but yet powerful enough to collect, analyze and visualize data.

    Return on Investment

    AWS Elastic Beanstalk

    • Greatly reduced time in setting up and deploying test environments has saved a lot of hours and money.
    • Near-zero maintenance means that we don't spend any time tending to servers, the app containers just work.
    • The initial learning curve is a little steep to get services hosted in Elastic Beanstalk talking to external services like Redis, MongoDB, etc; but once one understands the pattern, development is a breeze.
    • The command line interface has enabled us to build many utility scripts that simplify our development workflow, thereby saving time.

    Splunk Enterprise

    • Overall very positive. It has provided visibility to what is going on within our network.
    • One drawback is the time it takes to get up to speed with the application, but this is up to the user, and Splunk education is excellent.
    • In my field, IT Security, there are few other friends to have in your back pocket better than Splunk. They are just that good.
