"It scales extremely well."
"The initial implementation process is not difficult or complex."
"The main feature that I like the most is the variety of solutions that it provides. It provides some analysis, business information and more. It provides a wide variety of services."
"Amazon AWS has good performance and easy management."
"The initial setup is straightforward."
"The product is highly scalable."
"The solution has very good Lambda functions within AWS."
"Amazon AWS has a better portfolio. They have an impressive technology and service portfolio."
"Because of the way that their pricing model is set up, I can scale up or down the size of a customer's server very easily. It makes life very easy for me when they run out of space, need more speed or RAM, etc. I can very easily pay the difference and reboot the machine, and now I have the upgrade that I wanted. That just makes it extremely simple."
"The most valuable aspects of Linode are the virtual server and the clean server. I install what I need on it."
"They have a very nice web interface to allow you to manage and reorganize your server."
"The cloud management panel is nice."
"The ability to fire up a virtual machine, use it, and then kill it, is quite a valuable feature for me."
"I very much like the support that you get, and I think that it's excellent."
"Service availability is the most valuable feature. It gives every user 100 percent uptime."
"The number one thing we like about Linode isn't necessarily a service, it's their support. We've found their support to be absolutely fantastic. They've been so outstanding with their support. Every single time we call them and we ask for advice or help, they go above and beyond and it's really made us appreciate what they do."
"The usability of the solution could be a bit better."
"Some of the storage services could be cheaper."
"One thing that Azure offers that I think is good is Migrate appliance. So, Azure has a migrate appliance that allows you to run against workloads to determine the cost, preparedness, and scalability. I haven't found a similar feature in AWS. That kind of service would be great on AWS too if you could point it to the data center."
"IAM only gives you one chance to capture your key."
"Some features may be better in Azure or some other portal. AWS could add some of those features."
"There should be seminars and online training sessions available from AWS because a lot of people who are not using it would benefit from having the basic knowledge or basic hands-on experience."
"I'd like to see AWS implement consolidated billing for businesses operating under one group. We want to consolidate the functionalities but keep the billing separate. That is a challenge we've faced, and I feel it's something they can improve on. For example, maybe you have three businesses that are operating under one group, and you want each entity to have a separate bill for the respective workload that they're using."
"Its interface could be better because there are so many services right now in the product that it is quite difficult to navigate around in this. Its interface could be a subject of improvement."
"I would like to see more seamless integration with backup, although it's pretty easy to do."
"They could have more international servers. There are certain places throughout Europe and Eastern Europe which are very open to doing a lot of technology business, such as Romania. Romania is very open to technology. At other service providers, I have stuff in Romania. I think there are some Eastern European locations that would be more open to it. So, if they could have more European points of presence, that would be more helpful."
"They don't have role-based access control, which is problematic for us."
"They recently changed the web interface and although the older one did not look as good, the new one is less responsive."
"I've had some difficulties with some of their IP addresses being banned by certain mail servers."
"The suitability of this solution depends on the features that you need. If you're an Uber-sized company then you're probably not going to want to start using Linode. If you are a large-sized organization then you're going to want to start using one of the bigger providers that gives you the scalability and the feature set that you are probably going to be needing in the future."
"Because they are a smaller company, they do not have, for example, all of the ways for authentication that Amazon or Azure has."
"Before they changed the dashboard, I found some of the more granular options easier to find."
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.
