AWS Database Migration Service Review

Low-maintenance and quite scalable but needs to offer a dedicated bandwidth

What is our primary use case?

We're primarily using the solution to migrate our archive and data, which we are storing in our local servers, to the cloud.

What is most valuable?

The solution's most valuable feature is its warning of the costs of the migration.

As the solution is on the cloud, we don't have to worry about the maintenance of software.

The administrative aspects of the solution are very good. When we need to, we can increase our speed.

What needs improvement?

It would be helpful if the bandwidth could be independent of the network or if we could have a dedicated bandwidth for this product.

In terms of dedicated bandwidth, if it can be support Excel or prioritize Excel based on the data it is going to transfer, it would be better.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for six months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is quite stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is quite scalable. We have more than 100 users currently on the solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

I've never reached out to technical support.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. It's easy to deploy and takes about 40 to 45 minutes. It does depend on the server and configuration, however. 

What other advice do I have?

I'm a consultant. We use the public cloud deployment model.

I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.
