Pros and Cons
  • "AWS cloud services are flexible and have thorough documentation. AWS also has data centers all over the world."
  • "I would like Amazon EKS to be easier to configure on various environments like Windows or Linux installations"

What is our primary use case?

Amazon EKS is for storage, services, and infrastructure. We have about 100 to 120 users on Amazon EKS right now. We'll likely expand by 10 or 15 percent in the next year depending on our customer needs. 

What is most valuable?

AWS cloud services are flexible and have thorough documentation. AWS also has data centers all over the world.

What needs improvement?

I would like Amazon EKS to be easier to configure on various environments like Windows or Linux installations

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using Amazon EKS for five years.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We use AWS in parallel with other cloud service providers from different vendors, like Azure and GCP. We are not the end customer. It's something we use to deliver services to our customers. We work with a wide range of technologies at the company, which employs around 500 plus people. They work with all major technologies currently available.

How was the initial setup?

Installing Amazon EKS is straightforward. It depends on what needs to be done, but it's not something that takes weeks to deploy. You can do it in a few hours or days. I would need to have a specific scenario to be precise because the steps vary in each installation.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I would like Amazon EKS to be cheaper. Otherwise, it's fine.  

What other advice do I have?

I rate Amazon EKS eight out of 10. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Amazon Web Services (AWS)
