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.
Serverless computing: This can be more cost-efficient just regarding computing resources than renting or purchasing a fixed quantity of servers, which involves periods of underutilization or nonuse.

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.
They release new solutions almost every quarter and you don't get that kind of innovation from an enterprise company.

Amazon AWS Cons

Brian Corbell
Founder with 51-200 employees
Accessing apps on AWS via my iPhone is awful.
AWS for API, or Seller Central, is no improvement from what we had (our internal tools we designed to update accounts, change customer network profiles, monitoring, MRTG graphs, etc), when AWS should be blazing.

They are mainly generalists without access to the operating system. As such, they can provide container level insights,not necessarily at the application level.
Somehow Amazon associated their marketplace as a place to find images of various installs (preconfigured software) and was late in the game enabling and promoting SaaS-based solutions. Thus, the AWS marketplace has near zero awareness in the mind of the prospect to find solutions to various problems plaguing them.

The AWS documentation is written in a way that is not very intuitive. That's an area they can improve.

It has the technical support features, but they need to be improved. It has lots of users, but they need to be managed accordingly.
