Pricing and Cost Advice
"We have a monthly subscription for Amazon AWS.""The prices are somewhat on the higher side. It would help if they can bring it down, especially for the sporting segment and for on-demand instances.""We are happy with the pricing.""A few of our customers pay for it yearly and monthly. Sometimes, when it's related to the data, the pricing seems to be high. It could be cheaper on a transactional basis.""Some customers will provide their own license and others will purchase it directly from AWS.""The solution is on a pay-as-use pricing model. The price of the solution could always be better but it is priced competitively.""The prices are a bit high.""With Amazon AWS, you pay as you go."

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.

Oracle Cloud is the industry’s broadest and most integrated public cloud. It offers best-in-class services across software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS), and even lets you put Oracle Cloud in your own data center. Oracle Cloud helps organizations drive innovation and business transformation by increasing business agility, lowering costs, and reducing IT complexity.
