"The solution has good speed. It's very fast."
"The stability is magnificent, it's spectacular."
"Amazon AWS has good performance and easy management."
"The features that I have found most valuable are its cloud storage and compute services."
"I like S3, load balancers, and Route 53."
"It's easy to manage. We can use a wide range of technologies with AWS."
"Amazon AWS is very stable."
"AWS is easy to manage."
"The most valuable feature is the high availability for the applications."
"Provides support throughout the whole platform."
"The solution provides a lot of flexibility to the application team for running their applications in the container platform, without needing to monitor the entire infrastructure all the time. It automatically scales and automatically self-heals. There is also a mechanism to alert the team in case it is over-committing or overutilizing the application."
"I would like to receive some alerts when my consumption is getting out of the normal range."
"One of the problems that I have seen is that some of the products are not as mature as others."
"They should have a better big data stack."
"They're really good on the business computing side, but there are other services where they can do really well. They can improve the data analytics platform and the data warehousing platform."
"The response time of technical support could be better."
"I would like to see CloudFormation made more in the programming way of thinking."
"The price needs improvement."
"AWS is very expensive."
"The solution only offers support for one server."
"Documentation and technical support could be improved. The product is good, but when we raise a case with support—say we are having an image issue—the support is not really up to the mark. It is difficult to get support... When we raise a case, their support people will hesitate to get on a call or a screen-sharing session. That is a major drawback when it comes to OpenShift."
"Not a ten because it's not a standard solution and the endpoint protection user has to prepare with documentation or have training from other people. It's not easy to start because it's not like other solutions."
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.
