Amazon AWS Review

For many of Pythian's clients, this solution is an amalgmation of on-premis and the cloud.


What is most valuable?

The RDS renders deployment agility and there is an on-demand database-as-a-service for MySQL, Oracle, and SQL Server.

How has it helped my organization?

Among other benefits, one salient benefit for many Pythian customers is the option of spinning up a new instance whenever needed. This can be done with a few clicks.

What needs improvement?

RDS doesn't have shell access, which could be especially beneficial for Oracle databases.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used this solution for the past 2 years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I have not really encountered any issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have not really encountered any issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

The tech support is good and prompt.

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

For many of Pythian's clients, this solution is an amalgmation of on-premis and the cloud. Pythian enables its customers to reap the benefits of both worlds.

How was the initial setup?

Due to Pythian's expertise and experience, the initial setup was a breeze.

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

Read the fine print carefully and always engage experts to carry out migration.

What other advice do I have?

Having your database on RDS doesn't mean that you don't need DBA anymore. Mission critical and important databases must be handled by a DBA, even if the database resides on the cloud like RDS.
