AWS Snowball Review

Very scalable, with good technical support and good setup assistance

What is our primary use case?

We are trying to model the solution with some other vendors like Azure on a public cloud environment. We are creating some scale models will identify the public cloud networks over the internet. We are trying to evaluate the functionality.

What is most valuable?

We are currently exploring the solution, as it's still quite new to our organization. 

What needs improvement?

We are experiencing a few glitches that could be improved. The stability could be adjusted.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using the solution for three months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of the solution isn't ideal and should be improved.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

You are able to scale the solution vertically. It's very scalable.

We have eight to ten thousand users on the solution currently.

How are customer service and technical support?

We've been satisfied with technical support.

How was the initial setup?

The actual implementation on the production side is complex. To understand it is very simple, however. 

What about the implementation team?

We've had AWS consultants assist us with the implementation.

What other advice do I have?

We have an entirely public cloud environment. Once it has been successfully deployed on the public channel we can't extend that functionality to the hybrid one. 

We're a very large company with around 20 million users that include architects, developers, and admin and staff.

It's a very nice service. We'd highly recommend it. I'd rate it eight out of ten.
