What do you think of Amazon AWS?

Primary Use Case: Our primary use case is to use the solution for running many relatively small instances for back office applications and various other business important applications. • Improvements to My Organization: It did not improve our organization. • Valuable Features: There are no particular 'features' which stand out.  • Room for Improvement: The pricing could be adjusted to provide more advantages versus current on-premise solutions for business applications. • Use of Solution: One to three years. • Pricing, License Cost and Setup: AWS is much too expensive compared to current on-premises solution for this type of work. AWS IaaS is a very generic service, which is extremely overpriced.
