    Code Engine's adaptability makes it a good fit for both solo programmers working on side projects and large teams taking on more ambitious endeavors. IBM Cloud Code engine is a great option for a serverless platform for startups and small enterprises that are using Platform as a Service. It's useful for keeping execution times low and offering generous caps on useful resources.

    TIBCO ActiveSpaces is only suited in the company where Tibco suites have been already used, the license cost is not a concern, it is only required for data caching purposes and only works in the client/server mode for middle-sizes of data. If the expectation is data cache + distributed computation or embedded IMDG is also one requirement or the data cluster needs span multiple data centers, other light-weight OpenSource IMDG solutions should be considered

    Pros

    IBM

    • Server-less platform that is automatically managed
    • Pay per use - scale to zero results in an extremely cheap total cost of ownership.
    • There is no need for you to set the size, deploy, or scale container clusters yourself.
    • Auto scaling is always helpful and easy to use.

    • Tibco ActiveSpaces is an excellent caching tool. With good design, we can haven a efficient cache layer, that can respond to business needs in sub-seconds (milliseconds) rather than seconds / minutes to respond. This is specially useful for improving the efficiency of the services used in customer interactions.. like login, serving billing information, serving the customer's service usage and any other information customer is interested in accessing frequently.
    • System process can also use the ActiveSpaces . By caching the information frequently used by the system processes, the data cab be accessed more frequently. And without much disruptions.
    • If you are already using TIBCO tools, then ActiveSpaces is the right choice to use, as the product is well integrated with all the TIBCO Suite of products. ActiveSpaces integrates well with most common products like TIBCO BusinessWorks, TIBCO BusinessEvents etc.
    • ActiveSpaces can be easily deployed to a target (TIBCO) environment, with very little additional effort. Although there is an effort required to deploy them.
    • ActiveSpaces is supported by TIBCO BusinessWorks 5.13 and TIBCO BusinessWorks 6.x. Hence you are not forced to use any version of TIBCO BW, just because you have to use TIBCO ActiveSpaces.

    Cons

    IBM

    • It is limited to 100 apps per project[.]
    • Documentation - This can be more detailed and exhaustive. It might be intentional as the complexities are hidden away or abstracted to give an easy start for developers.

    • TIBCO ActiveSpaces Tuple-based data structure is not flexible enough to support customized native data objects.
    • There is no secondary index option.
    • Doesn't provide "predicate based In-Grid distributed search and result aggregation."
    • only can be used as data cache, the node's only contribute memory but can not use the data partition owner node's computation power to apply the distributed computation customized by the user.
    • Cross data center replication (geographically) is a pain.
    • Encounter the performance issue when the data volume is huge, even according to the architecture design, linear scaling up should not have that issue.

        Cloud engine is much easier to use, and gives a very clear interface and control. Each application can be configured differently with ease and changed without having to know anything about different subscription levels or inner workings of the system. Just change the resource numbers and you're done. Also there is no maintenance or even that much planning to do (making sure there are the right amount of resources in a cluster..). This is all taken care of

        One biggest advantage of the Tibco ActiveSpaces is it's ease of integration with the TIBCO suite of products. Hence it is more suitable to TIBCO AS in conjunction with the TIBCO suite of products. All products could offer the same or different level of advantages. For the enterprises that are already using the AWS, then they will prefer to go for Amazon ElastiCache. Oracle In-Memory Cache might have the same level of advantage but the if you are already using the TIBCO suite of products like the BusinessWorks, then TIBCO ActiveSpaces seems to be the right option since there is an out of box plugin available for TIBCO AS and it is compatible with TIBCO products. Otherwise, lots of custom coding is required to use the Oracle or Amazon products as these plugins are not readily available and supported by TIBCO BW.

        Return on Investment

        IBM

        • Because of its ease of use it only takes one programmer to run it.
        • Code Engine is so simple that it only takes a few hours to have the service ready to be used.
        • Some missing tools make you waste time looking for other services to integrate.

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