Amazon AWS Benefits

Brian Corbell
Founder with 51-200 employees
It improves the speed for us to access vendors, etc. AWS is extremely slow over the internet. Where we have GigE fiber over dedicated OC48 links, and when ping times to Dallas, TX from San Francisco is 30ms RTT on average, AWS is always 20ms higher. To AWS East, it is 70-110ms RTT, and the data transfer almost seems throttled. So I spun up an instance, made a BRAS image, like how DSL customers access the internet, and set up a peer with AWS to transfer data privately, then publicly from our instance to the AWS IP of our vendor, or partner and it has improved response times dramatically. The average API access latency was 250ms, horribly slow - already authenticated, etc. We also use it for our Amazon Seller Account and Amazon Vendor Account, where Amazon's systems run. Amazon recently moved their systems to CloudFront, but AWS DNS is awful slow. So the BRAS helps with the DNS as well. View full review »

IT Solution Architect at a tech vendor with 51-200 employees
For one of the clients I worked with, it has provided excellent storage solutions and infrastructure for deploying Java and PHP based applications. It has helped reduce the cost by rationing the computing power and paying only on a per usage basis, instead of provisioning unneeded, idle, or unutilized computing power that is used only at 20% of its capacity or time. Additional funds saved can be used to develop applications that add value to the business. Also, its features, such as auto-scaling help to manage capacity automatically. Another feature that we are fond of is the Cloud Formation tool. It helps to test and develop a working technical environment and replicate and modify it as necessary across various regions, clients, and business units. View full review »

Aditi Malaviya
COO at a tech vendor
We were not a "born in the cloud" company. Our email server solution was first deployed as on-premise, then as a hosted service on bare metal in a data center and then has been ported to AWS. The main reason to move from hosted bare metal to AWS was the flexibility in adding storage on demand. However, as we worked with Amazon we realized that it could help improve the scalability and availability of our SaaS offering with the other Amazon services. Using AWS services has allowed us to have a more atomized architecture, which is allowing us to build scale into each service. View full review »

AWS helped us reduce costs from CapEx to OpEex. Some of the introduced one-year and three-year reservations helped us reduce costs early on. With time, we learned how to minimize our at rest capacity, allowing us to scale up and scale down in near seconds. View full review »

Website and EComm at a local government with 10,001+ employees
Everything is moving into the cloud and AWS is the leader. Not understanding puts a person behind. I've worked with charities so the ability to host a static website in an S3 bucket at very low cost is great. Also, the ability to scale up and down, depending on project and funding status is ideal for the charity sector. Glacier storage means files that need to be kept for legal purposes (7 years) - but accessed infrequently - can be stored cheaply in Glacier. View full review »

With the pay-as-you-go model, we don't have to predict future IT needs. We can just scale up as we want. That helps with a lot of agility in deploying stuff in our IT infrastructure. View full review »
SrEngine9cff
Sr. Engineer at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees
In the era, we used private clouds as network virtualization must be controlled by the IT division, server rooms were in the remote branches and DevOps were distributed in various areas. Now, we can use the same API and the same workflow without considering to centralize the logs. View full review »
Samuel Rios Carvalho
Analista de Projetos at a tech services company with 201-500 employees
Before AWS, the time for availability of a new server would be more than a week, and currently, it can be measured in minutes. Failover also wasn’t easy to configure and wasn’t safe. It has helped our engineers to improve our performance both financially and in terms of traffic generated. View full review »

Amazon AWS has improved our organization. It has all the features which we need. We can spin up the server anytime and have root access to it. We built our website and hosted the Amazon server. We also set up the RDS database, which has the capability to help the MySQL queries. The user interface is very user-friendly, and you can assign Elastic IP anytime. Overall, this is the best IaaS for hosting the website and the database. View full review »
