We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The licensing is pay as you go, and I'm happy with the pricing."
"The cost of storage is cheap. However, the cost to have a better interface can get expensive. We are using Athena for this purpose and if we did some heavy queries the cost will start adding up. When the Athena query is running, it will scan the bucket and they charge for how many GBs we are going to scan. The function of scanning has a lot of costs attached to it, this is a negative point."
