Amazon AWS Review

A cheap alternative to having to build your own labs. Needs more transparency on what is persistent towards novice users.


What is our primary use case?

Web server hosting of a simple LAMP setup using Linux, Apache, and MySQL. Quick, cheap proof of concept solutions. 

How has it helped my organization?

No need for an on-premise infrastructure. It provides immediate access to vast resources at a relatively low cost and allows for setting up cheap PoCs.

What is most valuable?

For testing, it is a cheap alternative to having to build your own labs.  Provisioning and resource administration include billing dashboards, which are very extensive.

What needs improvement?

Not enough experience to really comment on this. 

In some areas, more transparency on what is persistent towards novice users. 

For how long have I used the solution?

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