Amazon AWS Review

Feature-rich, stable, and it is easy to expand our service offering

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and we use this solution to host applications for our customers. Their use cases are related to legal and advisory matters.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are load balancers, databases, and S3 buckets.

What needs improvement?

I have found some problems related to the database.

The price of this solution could be reduced to make it more competitive.

There are some limitations for certain applications that happen regionally and it is an issue for us. If we work with an application that is set up in New York, for example, then it has to be able to work in Pakistan.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Amazon AWS for between six and eight months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not experienced any issues in terms of stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is not a problem. We are currently extending our use of Amazon AWS and have acquired a partnership with them. With this, we are creating a cloud department for which we will offer Amazon Web Services.

How are customer service and technical support?

I did not have to call technical support.

How was the initial setup?

Our deployment took between five and ten months.

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

I find that Amazon AWS is expensive.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I recently evaluated the Oracle Cloud Platform, and I find that Amazon is more expensive.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is researching AWS is to consider their budget. If the budget is available then it is a good choice, whereas, for those who want to spend less, I would suggest using Oracle instead.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Private Cloud

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

Amazon Web Services (AWS)
