      I think nowadays, Amazon EC2 is best-suited for most app development and deployment use cases, especially if your resource requirements are not fixed over a long period of time. The flexibility provided by the on-demand pricing and rescaling option makes Amazon EC2 a great service, especially if your tech stack already runs on AWS. On the other hand, I think Amazon EC2 is not the best option if your tech infrastructure runs on another public cloud.

      Pros

      Amazon AWS

      • A great variety of choices in Amazon Machine Image (AMI) types. Users can select a more basic type to run generic workloads, but also have the choice to pick an AMI pre-installed with specific services in the AWS Marketplace.
      • The range of instance types can support the usage from a student's exploration (inexpensive general-purpose nano instances) to an enterprise's most intense workloads (memory or storage-optimized instances with terabytes of memory and ultra-fast network connection).
      • The pricing options, from regular instances, reserved instances to spot instances allow users to get the job done and make smart choices about how much they want to pay and when they want to pay.

      Cons

      Amazon AWS

      • This service is a bit difficult to consume. New users need a big learning curve to use this service effectively.
      • UI for EC2 service is a little complex and at many places, it misses detailed explanation.
      • Sometimes it takes too long to create images of EC2 instances. This keeps your EC2 up for that extra time. When instances are heavy, it penalizes a lot of money.

        Usability

        Amazon AWS

        Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) allows various ways of gaining incidents, such as slow growth, money, and the reserved ones, mostly depend entirely on the necessity, because it makes highly intelligent choices possible at these times, which enable considerable cost savings whilst addressing the situation as best I like.

        Support Rating

        Amazon AWS

        AWS's support is good overall. Not outstanding, but better than average. We have had very little reason to engage with AWS support but in our limited experience, the staff has been knowledgeable, timely and helpful. The only negative is actually initiating a service request can be a bit of a pain.

        Alternatives Considered

        Amazon AWS

        AWS EC2 is the mainstay of several AWS tools, with CodeBuild that includes AWS Cloud9, and CodePipeline, which allow us to work quickly, efficiently, for all the work team, regardless of whether it is remotely or locally, always keeping the progress saved in the cloud. With Lambda it can be compiled at any time in a fast way, with AWS WAF we protect the different connections, since it provides a high level of security, without having to configure too much, in general all the tools work perfectly with EC2, speeding up the development time of the different projects

        Return on Investment

        Amazon AWS

        • Instance procurement time has become negligible with EC2. Any developer can provision an instance very quickly and companies can move towards automation of CI/CD pipelines and auto provisioning of EC2s.
        • Companies do not have to spend money in managing infrastructures, data centers, staff to manage these, networking, connectivity etc. All this will be taken care by AWS and EC2 can be used to run your enterprise softwares and custom applications.
        • If not correctly monitored EC2 prices can run up very quickly. So proper monitoring has to be in place in your organization. Non-prod and dev EC2 servers should be brought down in evening and night.
