Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable feature is that it is a fully managed database, where they handle most of the administrative tasks and leaves the users more time to concentrate on business.""It makes it easy to administer the database. It helps to scale your database by providing Read Replicas, which reduce transaction time. It is highly available and durable which helps in disaster recovery and management.""The provisioning is much faster. You don't have to prepare hardware or install software. You just need to create an instance and you have a database."

"Scalability is its most valuable feature, as it is pretty simple.""It has a flexible integration with our easy API.""It is nice because our developers create tables whenever they need to sync data.""Its most valuable features are high availability and zero maintenance.""You can start quickly on projects which allow you to store many things.""It enables us to get work done quickly and get to our data.""As a tester, it was easy to validate data, access data, make active run queries against it, and retrieve data from it.""Our databases used to be in-house. Now, they are in the cloud with MongoDB and everything is much easier."

Cons
"It would be helpful if they made it easier to migrate from an existing on-premises solution to the cloud-based service.""The Amazon RDS engine could provide features for additional databases, such as Db2. It could also provide support for other databases, such as NoSQL databases, DynamoDB, and Apache Cassandra. They could all stay under one hood.""A lot of the features are disabled by default. The solution should enable more features. I understand this could cause challenges to management for many clients using RDS, however."

More Amazon RDS Cons »

"The cost needs improvement.""During the configuration, we did some migrations where we had to reindex about 70,000 indexes, which took around an hour. They should improve this and optimize the indexing.""We had some bad trainers when we first came onboard and would rate them fairly low. They did not seem staffed properly to fulfill the training services that they offered.""The cost needs improvement. The product is good, but the cost that we paid for it is expensive, so it wasn't that valuable.""I would like a more comprehensive dashboard.""Going forward, we would like to have pure AWS Cloud (native) storage instead regular storage on the AWS integration side.""The import and export process needs improvement, i.e., getting in and out. Moving data from other databases into MongoDB, along with indexing, was challenging.""The UI application for MongoDB crashes a lot, so we would have to use a third-party plugin to make it work."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The cost of using this solution is similar to that of having your own data center.""By using a combination of Reserve Instances and On-Demand pricing, you can reduce the cost."

More Amazon RDS Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Pricing could always be better.""The pricing is good. We originally chose it over DynamoDB because of the pricing.""It is too expensive. They need to work on this.""In my previous company, the product allowed use to build a database in a highly regulated environment with the ability to get distributed storage. We used MongoDB as a distributed storage to set up this environment for a critical business application with millions of dollars.""The purchasing process through the AWS Marketplace was very good.""The pricing and licensing is great."
