Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The scalability of the product is the solution's most valuable feature.""The most valuable feature is the backup ability. Most people are used to one type of backup solution that they're using, but most of these solutions have features that make it difficult to transfer to the cloud. I know that Veeam now gives people the opportunity to backup some on-premises solutions to the cloud. This feature is something that a lot of people are looking for.""I think Amazon AWS is easy to use, and it's a good service. I also like Amazon EKS because it's good.""The most useful feature of Amazon AWS is it can be accessed from anywhere.""Newly introduced features advance capabilities.""We pretty much like everything and we are excited about the seamless capability the EC2 service is offering.""There are many valuable features, I find the EMR in the platform easy to use and to learn.""It is quite easy to provision new virtual services for our use. The procedures are quite straightforward and simple as compared to other competitors, such as Microsoft or Huawei. This is what we are happy about with Amazon AWS. It is pretty mature in terms of the availability of most of the infrastructure components. If you want to deploy a server on your platform, everything is already there in terms of the operating system, network components, securities, and data encryption. It is also quite scalable and stable."

"There are a lot of services available in VMware Tanzu Application Service, such as databases and application servers.

It is as smooth as possible without any downtime. The platform maintenance, upgrading, and operations part is very smooth."

Cons
"I'd like to see integration with MySQL.""Some extensions are better than others.""It should be more secure and have more integrations.""It works very well with open-source solutions like Java, but not with .NET technologies.""Amazon AWS could improve by being more secure and adding more features.""If Amazon AWS can offer more self-paced learning tools, on their website, on CBT, it'll be easier for more people to familiarize themselves with their service. Especially when they are delivering new services from time to time. Educational tools that can help users familiarize themselves with their service. It would be great.""Integration with in-house applications could be simplified.""We have had several issues with the products and services but as of now, there are no good alternatives."

"Tanzu could provide more granular control over whatever networking is being done on the containers. I would also like to see a slightly more detailed view of application-level tracing. I'm referring to the connections between different microservices. If they added a service-matching feature, that would be helpful for the customers to build or be more effective.""The implementation is not easy, it is very complex and can take a day or two to complete."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."
  • "AWS is expensive and the cost should be reduced."
  • "Amazon AWS is really cost-effective."
  • "Licensing is on a yearly basis. I believe we are satisfied with the current pricing. Otherwise, we would have switched to another vendor."

    Overview

    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.
