Comparing AWS and OpenStack Database as a Service
Our company is all about delivering our Tesora Database as a Service (DBaaS) Platform, which is based on OpenStack Trove and can run with Helion OpenStack.
Because so many people are familiar with Amazon Web Services (AWS), we often find ourselves having to explain how DBaaS on OpenStack compares to Amazon’s data services like the Relational Database Service (RDS) or DynamoDB. In addition to giving the high-level comparison, I always like to point out the areas where Tesora DBaaS Platform provides clear advantages and I thought it would be useful to highlight some of those here.
First, Tesora DBaaS Platform runs in the data center, as well as the public cloud. This is important because we know that, in many cases, enterprises prefer their sensitive data is stored in their data center as opposed to the public cloud. Inherently, there is more control and visibility of security and privacy of the data on-premises. With OpenStack, your data can be managed on-premises, in a hosted private cloud or a public cloud like OVH or Rackspace, as examples. Some of these service providers even offer customers a built-in, Trove-based enterprise DBaaS. With AWS, on the other hand, the only option is public cloud. Also, when using OpenStack DBaaS, there is no lock-in and it is virtually the same whether run in an on-premises data center or on a cloud.
