Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"I like the storage, all the codes like Lambda and Amazon EMR.""There is less work for the DBAs. Everything is handled in AWS itself.""Works very quickly and is well managed.""The most valuable feature is the availability, as we work in different availability zones.""The solution scales very nicely.""It integrates well.""The best features are flexibility and cost.""One of the most valuable features is that Amazon AWS has a lot of data centers and regions where we can position our virtual machines for leverage. Amazon AWS is also easy to use. You can quickly spin up something, use Explorer, building proofs of concept, things like that. Once the proof of concept is built once and we know how things are going to look from a production perspective, we try to move everything to the data centers. These features and the ease of use are the main reasons why we use AWS."

Cons
"Requires better integration with other cloud products.""The solution is pretty mature.""Amazon AWS is a very poor product for students. Microsoft Azure is a better solution.""You'll probably experience some sticker shock with AWS. You attempt to understand the cost, but you don't realize what you're paying until you get your first bill. I don't know if Amazon does that on purpose, but costs can get out of control quickly if you don't have someone who specializes in AWS cost management.""When you are first starting, the initial setup can be a bit complex, but it gets easier after that.""The user interface (UI) needs improvement. Right now, it's not the best.""Integration with in-house applications could be simplified.""Its price should be lower. The price for in-house usage should be different from production usage."

    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.
