"The solution does provide quite a lot of support, upgrades, automated batch updates, etc.""There's a minimum amount of downtime when using the solution. This platform is very effective.""One of the features that I've found most useful is that It's very simple. They take care of the technical aspects of the data, installations, patches.""The most valuable feature is virtual modeling, which is beneficial because you don't really save the data multiple times the way we did in the past.""The solution is stable and we have never had a problem. We started with one terabyte of data when the solution was first implemented and today we have around almost 600 gigabytes of data, which means means the compression works properly. Before migrating from ECC, we had nine terabytes of data."

"The overall convenience and the ease to use could be improved.""The technical support should be better than what is on offer right now.""AWS support could be better.""In terms of additional features we'd like to see, the one thing that comes to mind is better integration with Oracle. We have a lot of Oracle databases, and there is no other option to either migrate to PaaS, stay on-prem, or use Oracle Private Cloud.""It would be ideal if they could provide automatic health reports. That way, I would be able to understand at a glance the state of my services at any given time.""The solution could offer better integration capabilities.""The solution could improve by being more secure.""The setup of the solution is not so easy, it requires various skills to complete it. The whole implementation can take a month."

More Amazon AWS Cons →

"Our data centers are in Europe and come under GDPR regulations, and this doesn't apply to the Middle East yet. It causes a lot of confusion.""The customer has a lot of dependencies on SAP which means they don't have much flexibility to go and update the system when or if they need to. They will need to wait for the quarterly updates. It's possible to maybe raise a special request with SAP if it is absolutely necessary.""This product is not mature enough at this point in time.""The solution is scalable from an infrastructure point of view. However, it becomes more complex over time because technology is changing so fast.""They should probably offer more cloud services. Most of the cloud infrastructure providers we have make everything pretty transparent, you know what you're getting, you have all these metrics and measurements and everything in the dashboard. Here you have to go through the contracting negotiations and all those things."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It's my understanding that our company is charged a few hundred dollars on a monthly basis."
  • "I find that Amazon AWS is expensive."
  • "The Oracle licensing is higher than it is with Amazon AWS."
  • "I think they've done a pretty good job with their pricing."
  • "Its price is kind of okay. When we do a migration from on-premises to the cloud, we typically use the lift-and-shift model. Based on the studies that we have done, cost savings are definitely there when we moved from on-premises to the cloud."
  • "The price could be lower."
  • "There are many variables involved in pricing service in AWS and overall the pricing is a bit on the higher side."
  • "AWS is not an expensive product."

  • "If you choose the minimum, it will probably cost around $1,000 USD per month if you take a contract for a year or two."
  • "The licensing of the solution is on a yearly basis. The normal price of the solution is quite high, but I received a special discount by making a purchase near the end of the year."

    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.
