Amazon AWS Review

Easy to set up, flexible, and well-priced

What is our primary use case?

I am a consultant and Amazon AWS is one of the platforms that I use.

What is most valuable?

The best features are flexibility and cost.

What needs improvement?

Scaling is an area that can be improved. For example, I would like to be able to change the amount of memory that is allocated to a server. This would give us better performance. I know that it can be done but it isn't obvious how to do it.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with Amazon AWS for between two and three years.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is good. We contacted them when we were working on a project and they were both knowledgeable and helpful.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is easy.

There is some design that has to be done, including security and zoning.

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

The price for AWS is good.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

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)
