"The scalability is the most valuable feature."
"The solution effectively monitors the health of resources and provides good identity access management."
"The most valuable feature is that it works very well."
"The initial setup is good and straightforward."
"Its most significant benefit to date is the speed with which it refreshes DNS records on the internet once you change it. If you are changing a website or registering a new record, it is very quick."
"The solution should include more robust and secure services for hardening sites."
"There are no detailed logs, and they should implement that in the solution."
"When we are looking at the model registry, it may be not clear sometimes. For example, if you use a single grid model and group or registry, it has a different SDK in the pilot. And it may be not so comfortable to use both of them because it is two different places for keeping things in order."
"Route 53 would be better if it had the ability to handle multiple requests at the same time because we have a lot of users. I would like that to be optimized in the next version."
"I believe they currently have this feature, but there will most likely be integration with APIs so we can control some features through API."
