I would like to mentioned about the scenario where Amazon cloud search was well suited is when we need regular updation of data and the subject matter requires continuous alterations due to the continuous changing environment and talking abut the least appropriate would the times when their is high level of customisation requirements in the project.

Constructor.io Corporation
Constructor.io Search takes all of the guesswork out of maintaining a search engine. As merchandisers or product teams, we have educated guesses at how search relevance should work but the customer is always king. We can't always predict the ways in which consumers will search or what their intent is. That's why the behavioral-driven approach that Constructor.io employs works so well. It means that merchandisers can focus on their sales and promotional responsibilities, instead of wasting time and bandwidth on base-level relevance questions.

Cons
Amazon AWS
  • First thing I would like to mentioned about its indexing speed, I have noticed while working with large sums of data
  • Second I would like to mentioned about customisation challenge, although it is also its pros but a con as well, as it is a tedious task to customise when time value comes place as well.
  • Thirdly, I do feel that its advanced search queries could be more supported. I have seen some level of lagging when it comes to more advanced search queries given the size of data.

Alternatives Considered

I didn't investigate the best alternatives to CloudSearch, but did help with implementing this feature in our application. But from what i tested and used - Cloudsearch is very fast to get queries. Some negative points can be the time to implement this and some configurations that can be tricky.
