Very reliable, very well documented if you need how to's, indeed not cheap but would be my number 1 choice if I have to choose cloud services in my next workplace. I had an urgent project and had to learn EC2 from scratch within 2 days, their documentation is so good, I did it successfully- even faster than planned.

Very reliable. Not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for.
My experience with the service was that if I needed something that wasn't already offered by Amazon - this exact solution was announced by Amazon only a few weeks later - just in time for me to use it. Amazon's execution is Very impressive, and they know the community and its needs very well.
