Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)

If they need anything in the cloud where they want to stand something up from the operating system up, Elastic Compute Cloud is a no brainer. With the versatility and speed to which you can create resources to suit your needs, there is no comparison. Elastic Block Storage, in addition to Elastic Compute Cloud, is a game changer for virtualization.

Pros

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)

Cons

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)

  • The whole process of configuration and spinning up instances requires thorough technical knowledge. The learning curve for it seems a bit daunting.
  • The training documentation and support is a bit lacking. We tried using Lambda expressions for program flow execution and did not find great resources on that topic.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)

We haven't analyzed or used other products. We started using AWS when it was pretty new and have been very happy so have not needed to look at other products.

We have, however used many traditional hosting companies to host dedicated web servers that we fully managed; and we still do maintain a number of traditional servers at OVH.
