"Amazon is a really good solution with high performance. They offer more connectors than some of their competitors, such as Microsoft Azure."
"The technical support is good."
"The features that I have found most valuable are their compute and their Relational Database Service."
"I like S3, load balancers, and Route 53."
"The installation process is very simple."
"It is stable. For the cloud version, we require some installation platforms and we don't have a server with us right now. We require it from Amazon AWS. We can just plan and get the AWS server."
"The initial implementation process is not difficult or complex."
"Technical support is quite helpful."
"I've found the stability to be excellent. The performance is good."
"For non-complex applications, the IBM Cloud works fine and the price is much lower than the competitors."
"It is easy to deploy what you need for the initial setup"
"One of the features that I really like about IBM Cloud is the flexibility where you can order your own hardware."
"The availability is second to none. Customer support is very good."
"This is a predictable and dependable service."
"There is no installation for this product because it is a cloud product."
"The solution could always be further improved on the commercial side of things. Amazon Web Services are not cheap. It would be ideal if it was less expensive for the customer."
"I would like to see CloudFormation made more in the programming way of thinking."
"Some of their well-listed services are not super configurable."
"It's sometimes a challenge to manage billing on this platform. It takes a lot of labor to generate billing for our customers from the service on the cloud."
"The features that should be improved are that there should be better clarity on their invoicing. There are so many things they charge for - high line items in the invoice. I think there should be more clarity and more ease of use with their billing. I'd like to see better ease of use of with the billing console and a clear dashboard to understand the usage."
"The price of the solution is comparatively quite high in comparison with that of Azure."
"Our API Management solution is integrated with Lambda, and last year, we had an issue while upgrading Lambda from version 8.0 to version 10. It seemed like Lambda runtime was changed by AWS, and there was a bug that caused the downtime. The loading of the dashboard is slow. It could be because I am located in China."
"The pricing is reasonable but there is always room to be better."
"The product should offer more computing, similar to Amazon."
"They do not have a very good virtual network implemented, and the VPC is the most important feature that needs to be improved."
"There is not a lot of support for this solution, which is something that needs to be improved."
"They could improve on customizing reporting capabilities."
"The initial setup and the pricing are areas that need improvement."
"It could be more secure."
"The deployment can be a bit of a pain. There are a lot of packages and a lot of options and it can require complex configuration to get it right."
Amazon Web Services (AWS), is a collection of cloud computing services, also called web services, that make up a cloud-computing platform offered by Amazon.com. These services operate from 12 geographical regions across the world. The most central and well-known of these services arguably include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, also known as "EC2", and Amazon Simple Storage Service, also known as "S3". Amazon markets AWS as a service to provide large computing capacity more quickly and more cheaply than a client company building an actual physical server farm.
IBM Cloud is a full-stack cloud platform that spans public, private and hybrid environments. Build with a robust suite of advanced data and AI tools, and draw on deep industry expertise to help you on your journey to the cloud.
