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 is customer service and technical support?

The tech support is good and prompt.

Which solutions did we use previously?

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.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
