IBM Cloud Code Engine

It is very well suited for anything that can be put into a container, especially if horizontal scaling is possible with the product you are building. It just works.
Also, [it is well suited] to quickly push things into production, as there is not much ceremony. Just push a container, create application and off you go. Also, it's very appropriate with uneven loads as it easily scales both up and down.
It is less appropriate when [you are using] a static computer or to retain data somehow and you don't want to use network storage of some kind or database (just save things locally).

TIBCO ActiveSpaces

TIBCO ActiveSpaces is suitable when the organization is already using Tibco product for integration/big data/analytic/messaging layers. The cache of data is the sole purpose of TIBCO ActiveSpaces and it works only in client & server mode. It supports or works well only for small to average sizes of data. If the above points are fulfilled, then the license cost of the product is not a major concern.

TIBCO ActiveSpaces

  • Like all other IMDG solutions, Tibco ActiveSpaces provides a scalable and distributed cache solution, which is supposed to have high throughput and high availability.
  • As it is under the Tibco umbrella, it is seamlessly integrated with other Tibco products.
  • It breaks the traditional "local cache" boundary and limitation, instead unifies many "local physical memory" to create one huge "In-Memory Data Grid", and serves the data provider/consumer application logically as one "Memory Cloud."
  • A lot of non-frequently updated data can be cached in this IMDG, to allow fast access, which saves the I/O latency caused by many traditional file system-backed storage solutions.

Cons

IBM Cloud Code Engine

  • It is limited to 100 apps per project
  • It is limited to 100 jobs per project
  • The total combination for all of the apps and jobs cannot exceed 256 GB of memory

TIBCO ActiveSpaces

  • ActiveSpaces 3.2 is not compatible with the latest version of TIBCO Business Event 5.x. And ActiveSpaces 2.x is not compatible with ActiveSpaces 3.x hence there is a big difference in the BusinessEvents supported version of AS and the latest.
  • ActiveSpaces takes more disc space and TIBCO does not offer data compression logic out of the box. Developers need to do extra coding to use java snippets to compress and decompress the payload. Although the data compression gives must better performance and speed to the system.
  • The compression and decompression API are not offered by TIBCO out of the box, which is a shame. These are so easy and simple to implement, still TIBCOdoes not provide them as an option out of the box.

Return on Investment

IBM Cloud Code Engine

  • [One] positive is that we have one tool to learn (and a simple one) for all kinds of deployment. We need less people to maintain the system.
  • We have saved a lot of time on trouble shooting. It's clear how it works. It's "just" kubernetes..

TIBCO ActiveSpaces

  • The cost of Tibco ActiveSpaces is quite high, while the added value it brought is not as we expected.
