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."

"The most valuable feature of the solution is its ability to scale. The services that connect to the database are also very good.""Stability is not a concern with this product.""The most valuable features are the monitoring and the deployment is easier.""PCF is open, so the applications run really smoothly and with little downtime."

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."

More Amazon AWS Cons »

"In the next release, they should offer additional applications for the databases, and improve the deployment experience.""The user interface should be simpler to navigate because it t can take time for users to learn it.""In the next release, I would like to see easy integration with external tools.""It is not straightforward to setup."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

"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
