AWS Directory Service Review

Easy to use, but better integration with other business solutions would be useful


What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is ease of use.

The documentation is okay.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see better integration with other business solutions.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using AWS Directory Service for less than one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

AWS Directory Service is a scalable solution. We have thirty users in our company and we do plan on increasing our usage.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is ok.

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

I have used Microsoft Active Directory, and we switched because AWS Directory Service is easier to use.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. I think that it took about two weeks to deploy.

What about the implementation team?

Two people are suitable for maintenance.

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

The pricing is reasonable.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options before choosing this one.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is considering this solution is to first make sure that they want to use other AWS services. If they do not intend to do so, then they can simply use Microsoft Active Directory.

This solution does what we want to achieve.

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Private Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

Amazon Web Services (AWS)
