Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Their technical support is really good. I am very satisfied.""We have seen an improvement in our infrastructure, as the code makes it very easy to deploy quickly to AWS.""As a service vendor, we have helped clients to achieve faster "go to market" on their products, and have provided highly flexible cost-effective system management solutions.""The solution offers a low footprint. We don't have to come up with a data center ourselves. We basically don't have to own any hardware. We just rent a slice of their platform and we have everything we need.""The most valuable features are load balancers, databases, and S3 buckets.""The most valuable feature is that it is simple.""There are a lot of features that I really like including ease of deployment, ease of build and release, and also that it is heavily focused on a PaaS or SaaS model.""The experience with Amazon AWS is error-free. That was also, of course, something that I really appreciate. That means it's really well-tested and, as published or as declared."

Cons
"There's not much room for improvement but that being said, they can improve the overall process of the overall product features and backend.""An easier way to determine estimated costs quickly would be helpful.""This solution would be improved with the inclusion of hybrid Kubernetes management.""They should really consolidate and make things simpler rather than offer you hundreds of random options. The way everything is arranged really forces users to figure out everything on their own and then, on top of that, to calculate the total costs. There's an infinite number of combinations even just with cost calculations. It's just too much.""There are some limitations for certain applications that happen regionally and it is an issue for us.""They can launch the Oracle service in Azure, and we expect that this should be possible in Amazon AWS as well.""One of the problems that I have seen is that some of the products are not as mature as others.""I'm just bugged by the charges that I'm not really able to manage."

"Technical support needs to be improved.""The solution needs to provide better integration between this solution and all other kinds of systems."

Overview

Amazon Web Services (AWS), is a collection of cloud computing services, also called web services, that make up a cloud-computing platform offered by Amazon.com. These services operate from 12 geographical regions across the world. The most central and well-known of these services arguably include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, also known as "EC2", and Amazon Simple Storage Service, also known as "S3". Amazon markets AWS as a service to provide large computing capacity more quickly and more cheaply than a client company building an actual physical server farm.

Dell EMC Elactic Cloud Storage (ECS) provides a complete software-defined object storage platform designed for today's cloud-scale storage requirements. ECS provides the simplicity and low cost benefits of the public cloud without the risk, compliance, and data sovereignty concerns. ECS benefits include:

  • Cloud-scale Economics: 60% TCO savings versus public cloud services.
  • Simplicity & Scale: Single global namespace, unlimited apps, users and files.
  • Universal Accessibility: Support for object, file, and HDFS all on a single platform.
  • Faster App Development: API accessible storage and strong consistency accelerates cloud apps & analytics.
  • Turnkey Cloud: Multi-tenancy, self-service access and metering capabilities.
