What needs improvement?

We're currently expanding multiple versions of the solution. We use the cloud deployment model and most clients are also in the AWS environment. I'd advise others to pay… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't evaluate other solutions before choosing RDS. Since we're using everything else that is Amazon, it seemed like an obvious choice.
