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

Pros
"Thanks to Heroku, we don't need to do as much direct management in AWS.""It's easy to push a change and to deploy new things.""It is easy to deploy applications, and we don't need to bother about software updates on the server. We don't need to bother about machines, servers, and hardware. We only need to care about the system and functionality that we need or want to develop. They take care of everything else. It provides high availability. It is a pretty good solution that provides everything that we need. It has everything that we need to run our applications. We have many different applications, and we generate three million bills for a company in Brazil. We see more than a billion requests per day in another application. Everything works just fine, and it is very good."
