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

Pros
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.We have seen an improvement in our infrastructure, as the code makes it very easy to deploy quickly to AWS.Their technical support is really good. I am very satisfied.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.It offers durability, high availability, fault tolerance, and a high TCO benefit.This solution features ease of use and market adaptability.The cutting-edge design is valuable.

The price of IBM Cloud is most valuable for us. The service is personable and gives us a good rapport. I can't say it's the best, but it was enough for our needs.

Cons
This solution would be improved with the inclusion of hybrid Kubernetes management.An easier way to determine estimated costs quickly would be helpful.There's not much room for improvement but that being said, they can improve the overall process of the overall product features and backend.The AWS documentation is written in a way that is not very intuitive. That's an area they can improve.AWS should provide even more support and engagement to accelerate the adoption of new services and features.The use of this tool should be extended to Google and Apple operating systems.More complete and specific training for many of the technologies, specifically with Python Django and the CMS (Mezzanine).The pricing could be adjusted to provide more advantages versus current on-premise solutions for business applications.

Maybe performance enhancers and reports could be better improved. If they do so, it would be better. Of all the drawbacks I saw, this would be the biggest enhancement.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It's pay-as-you-go... but I think the pricing becomes a problem as the IT organization grows. They need to give better pricing when companies grow.​AWS is much too expensive compared to current on-premises solution for this type of work.AWS IaaS is a very generic service, which is extremely overpriced.​We are reducing costs year-over-year.Much faster than other solutions at a super low cost.One of the best-kept ways to reduce costs is to develop it on serverless technologies with AWS Lambda, SNS, DynamoDB, and S3.One of the best thing in Amazon AWS is you are billed for the service you use.

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.

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".
