If you are a small scale enterprise that wants to host websites or data, you should go for it and use Amazon S3. I would rate Amazon S3 at nine on a scale from one to ten.

We are implementors. I would recommend the solution to other companies. it's a very flexible product. It's cheap. You pay for what you get. It's just a cloud. AWS has a really good cloud implementation. I could not compare it with any other -such as Azure or Google - as I have not tried any of those. Users who would like to look at other options should check out Gartner's Magic Quadrant. However, any company can go easily to AWS straight away and be sure that they're going to pay a good price for a good service. I'd rate the solution at a ten out of ten.

Other companies are trying to reach them but they've been ahead of the game for a long time. As an object storage product and in comparison to what's available on the market, I rate this solution a 10 out of 10.

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.
