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.

  • Data as a Service (DaaS)

Cons

Amazon Web Services

  • AWS has a record of occasional severe outages, which has a cascading effect on the large number of high-profile services that now run on its infrastructure. Despite the spectacular nature of these outages, it is unlikely that a self-managed data center would achieve significantly better uptime.
  • It is also the case that AWS outages can be mitigated with effective use of multiple deployment 'zones' and regions. This is something that any mission-critical application should be doing anyway as part of disaster recovery preparations.

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

Performance

Amazon Web Services

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.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Web Services

AWS is more reliable and has more coverage worldwide in terms of servers. AWS is more expensive but for the service quality, enterprise companies can spend more.

The features are complemented by database lifecycle management features
like configuration management, performance management, patch automation, etc which make the

high ROI.

Return on Investment

  • Our main reason for migration was better redundancy, building this ourselves was cost prohibitive.
  • We are able to accomplish more with our system using existing staff by using the AWS tools that are available.
