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.

OnRamp

OnRamp is great for medium or large size companies that need to organize information in a way that is easily accessible. It is not great for small companies who don't have a lot of customers.

Cons

  • Better user support would be nice. It seems hard to find help when you need something specific from an Amazon employee.
  • Even though the prices are set up for enterprise they do seem high for small to mid level businesses, compared to other alternatives.
  • It would be nice to be able to have some type of DB security built in to the EC2s or as a default.

  • I hear complaints from our donations department on how extractions can be difficult at times when pulling multiple years information
  • OnRamp can make room for improvement by allowing us to make changes from an admin standpoint on how we pull up certain reports

AWS has met our requirements, including the pricing. There is no need to move off of AWS at this time.

The management console is the weak part of the service in my experience. It is adequate but slow.

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

We looked into other server hosts, but the cost was out of our budget. We were quoted a monthly fee of $500 to $750, plus an initial fee of over $1,000. AWS made the most financial sense as well as other reviews and recommendations

OnRamp is much easier to use then Financial Edge with its user-friendly interface. Financial Edge seems dated and is much more complicated when running reports.

Return on Investment

  • Resource availability of free-tier resources is very low compared to needs before an application can become potentially profitable.
  • AWS requires less time to set up and configure than other comparable services, but not better than all services.
