Anonymous UserLead Architect - Expert Enterprise Data Solutions at a financial services firm
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The main feature that I like the most is the variety of solutions that it provides. It provides some analysis, business information and more. It provides a wide variety of services."
"The main feature for us is that the tools are all in one place and that you don't need to bother with the backend system and the infrastructure."
"I found the flexibility of handling and dealing with database through EDL to be very useful."
"The most valuable feature I like is about the realtime. Updates are also very fast."
"The user interface is very good and easy to navigate."
"The Realtime Database feature is the most important for us since we are able to see changes in the database the moment they are happening."
"If there's data added to the solution, there's a good record of it so it's easy to track everything."
"What I like most about Google Firebase is that it's one of the easier options to host a website or app quickly."
"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."
"One area that could be improved is in data management. They could improve on the data side. For example, I see others with better cloud services and larger data computing capabilities."
"There was no way of knowing how the rise in traffic would impact the price."
"Their technical support needs to be enhanced with more support for customers."
"We use Firebase for media processing and we are growing more. As we grow, the pricing goes high and it's high compared to competitors. The solution is expensive."
"The cold start-up of the cloud function needs to speed up. For me personally, I'm not experienced in anything there, however, I've just read online it's a problem."
"I would like to have a facility for testing possible scenarios by writing dummy data and then doing different queries."
"The solution needs to offer capabilities to work offline. Like Firestore, we should be able to do insertion, updating, and deletion offline."
"I would like to see faster data migration and some support for other languages in the next release."
"It's my understanding that our company is charged a few hundred dollars on a monthly basis."
"I find that Amazon AWS is expensive."
"The Oracle licensing is higher than it is with Amazon AWS."
"I think they've done a pretty good job with their pricing."
"Its price is kind of okay. When we do a migration from on-premises to the cloud, we typically use the lift-and-shift model. Based on the studies that we have done, cost savings are definitely there when we moved from on-premises to the cloud."
"The price could be lower."
"There are many variables involved in pricing service in AWS and overall the pricing is a bit on the higher side."
"AWS is not an expensive product."
"It is not easy to calculate the cost per copy, use or if the load rose dramatically we did not know how that would impact the final price."
"The monthly cost is based on writing data and queries to the database."
"The pricing component is a bit confusing when it comes to what exactly you'll pay for, but I wouldn't say it's expensive."
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.
