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.

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 solution's pricing could be improved.
