Amazon AWS Review

Great cloud platform with scalability a key feature

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for all modern application development and data-led processes as well as for building architecture, AWS Lambda and more scalable solutions for our clients on AWS cloud. I'm a practice partner of data analytics and AI.

What is most valuable?

This is a great cloud platform and scalability is an outstanding feature. It's very useful. 

What needs improvement?

I think the solution could be more user-friendly, like Microsoft products. They could include a lot more applications and make free resources available. I'd like to see more code application within AWS to build modern and good applications. A lot of cases we deal with need to write a lot of code in AWS and it would be helpful if there were designer functionalities.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for six years. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

This is a very scalable solution. Most of the enterprises use AWS today, it's the number one cloud provider today. 

How are customer service and technical support?

AWS technical support is good. They have a partner that provides us with technical support. It's managed either by AWS or by partner support, and it's good. 

How was the initial setup?

Because the solution is on cloud, there's no real installation. You download to the cloud and login. When it comes to infrastructure positioning you need to have different teams. It requires some infrastructure support but it's fully managed by AWS. We plan to increase usage. 

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

Licensing options are either a monthly pay for use option or a contract option.

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend this solution. 

I rate this product a nine 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)
