Since the configuration and maintenance is done by the client most of the time, it's hard to know if there are any issues with the solution. I haven't heard of any. We've had issues with bandwidth in the past, and we don't know where the bottlenecks are. We're not sure if it's on the AWS side or with the clients or the configuration in between. There's no visibility. The solution should also be more clear on the pricing. It can be misleading because it looks so low at first but then can get to be quite expensive. It might be better if they charged upfront.

The product could be improved by making the setup process simpler.

Although we have not used this application long, I am not sure, in its current configuration, that we could scale this solution to meet our needs.
