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 most valuable feature of the solution is its ability to scale. The services that connect to the database are also very good.

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.

In the next release, they should offer additional applications for the databases, and improve the deployment experience.

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.

Licensing is on a monthly basis and right now we pay $24/month. There are no other costs over and above that.

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.

Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) is the leading enterprise PaaS, powered by Cloud Foundry. PCF provides a cloud-native application platform that allows you to continuously deliver any app to every major private and public cloud with a single platform. PCF is proven to accelerate feature delivery with higher developer productivity and a 200:1 developer to operator ratio. PCF's built-in security and self-healing capabilities reduce risk in your app portfolio while maintaining high-availability at scale to keep customer facing systems online even in the most challenging circumstances. pivotal.io
