If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Amazon S3, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I have experience with many cloud services and with several services through Amazon. I would recommend this solution. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
Amazon deployment works beautifully. If you know what your inside view will look like, you can cut down on your cost. Look at cloud security when you first configure the architecture.
You have to know specifically what it is being used for. One of the issues we face is that it is a developer's environment. In our country, the Philippines, people are often forced upon with brands such as Microsoft, Zadara, and even Oracle. Azure is something that is explored by developers. The onus is with the formal organization to get the people back in. I would rate this solution a fair eight out of ten. It does what I need it to do, but it is a developer's tool. It's not something that I have heard many people harp about.
It's difficult to offer advice as it depends on the use case and what this solution is intended for. This solution is managed fully, and there is no need for upgrades or anything. It's cloud-based. If you just Gmail, you don't upgrade Gmail. I would recommend this solution for companies of any size. It's good for starting up because you only pay for what you use. It's internet-capable, making it good for any company. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.
