Amazon Web Services

Amazon Web Services is well suited for companies or organizations that need to run specific applications or virtual services on servers. The cost-per-server ratio makes this ideal for testing and live deployment scenarios. It is especially ideal for smaller to medium size IT development teams. If you are looking to just set up a website, for example, AWS may not be ideal unless you are having it custom built.

Azuqua

Azuqua is well suited to connect data based systems or to add an extra level of automation to Smartsheet without requiring the control center. It is also well suited for people who don't have in depth understandings of programming. The UI is mostly visual with click and drag systems instead of requiring manually entered variables.

  • There is a customized help button for each card that gives details on what it does and sometimes examples of what it should work like. This helps decide the best way to accomplish the business problem.
  • During the trial period and for accounts at higher subscription levels, Azuqua has dedicated assistance people who will screen share or email you examples to help work through points where you are stuck.
  • Azuqua integrates cleanly with many software applications. We are only using it for two, but the possibilities are endless for what you can accomplish with it.

  • The help and community features are lacking depth and sometimes don't quite work.

I would gladly rely on AWS for any large-scale application deployment. For prototyping and small-scale applications, a more heavily managed environment on top of the 'bare metal' virtual infrastructure, such as Heroku or Elastic Bean Stalk, is probably a more productive approach in most cases

Usability

Easy to use/learning curve. If you are new to the use of cloud storage, AWS is your entry point. If you have experience in that field, AWS is the way to go.

Availability is very good, with the exception of occasional spectacular outages.

Performance

AWS does not provide the raw performance that you can get by building your own custom infrastructure. However, it is often the case that the benefits of specialized, high-performance hardware do not necessarily outweigh the significant extra cost and risk. Performance as perceived by the user is very different from raw throughput.

The API's were very well documented and was Janova's main point of entry into the services.

Alternatives Considered

The particular services I am using in AWS is easier to set up and manage than Microsoft Azure. IBM Bluemix/Cloud previously has too many product beta and preview released along with their products. Microsoft also releases too many products in preview or beta.

I evaluated Zapier and Microsoft Flow before coming across Azuqua. Zapier was too simplistic and didn't allow for transfer of enough variables. The price point also didn't work for the value it could provide. Microsoft Flow couldn't make the connection with Smartsheet, and I was unable to get Microsoft support or Smartsheet support to assist me with the issue.

Return on Investment

  • Profitability: We've a team of very hands-on engineers and what they would need to build what we now get from AWS, would not have had the level of profitability we get with AWS. At first, our inhouse team really wanted this work inhouse. Now, they're very grateful it's not. Billing is always accurate and automated with full justification in every report. We can plan our growth far more accurately.
  • Flexibility: We can onboard new customers in an instant. We can give greater service levels to our current customers, just as quickly and dynamically too, if their needs change.
  • Ease of use: seriously, one or two phone calls is pretty much all we've ever had to make when our needs change and it's been that easy for the last 4 or 5 years now.

  • The existence of Azuqua has increased employee morale and openness to the two systems. People are getting in there and adding information which is being shared with the whole team.
