It is well suited for quickly provisioning a web and application hosting platform that you are able to have greater control over managing additional resources.It is well suited for databases.It is well suited for storage.It is well suited for experimental applications.It is not as well suited authentication and user management.

Quick Base

For us, Quick Base gets used when we want to collaborate across companies (or even distant offices internally), when we have a need for a database come up on very short notice, and/or when we expect the needs of the application to frequently change. Quick Base allows us to manage all of those things easily, and we have not found another solution that does so.We don't use Quick Base if there are very complicated rules for data integrity, relationships, triggers, etc. We also don't use it to generate complex reports, although the data often resides in QB.

Pros

  • Cost: AWS's free tier enables developers to try out the service with no commitment. The resiliency of the AWS infrastructure is a great value-add.
  • Ubiquity: AWS networks have the availability and elasticity which not only meet the needs of developers, but also end users.
  • AWS is an E2E solution for deploying, managing, and continuously integrating software development.

  • Customizing forms for different departments speeds up processes because you don't have to read or fill out unnecessary information.
  • Customization allows for multiple work styles to work simultaneously while not interfering with each other.
  • On the fly updates make sticky points so much easier to fix. Frustration is lower because you know that if it really does bother you, there's probably a better or faster way of doing it.

Cons

  • Resizing images upon upload - should be a built-in feature
  • Automatically making images public by default
  • Disconnect between SNS and Apple - constantly disabling device tokens

  • There are still some control element styles I'd like, namely with tagging and searching multiple choices. It would be nice to be able to search and hit enter and have the first entry populate rather than having to click it and the search begin again. Kind of like tags work in YouTube.
  • Speed is always an issue. Loading pages sometimes can take a while. But usually that can be changed by improving the forms or relationships, but it's not always apparent how to do that.
  • I'd really like to be able to click on a location/section and have an option to exclude it from view or functionality based on specific users or roles.

A paradigm shift from companies like Microsoft that have made procuring and using software and license so hard. Not to mention installing, configuring and hiring folks to maintain it. AWS makes it so easy to have an enterprise infrastructure that scales up and down and very affordable

With Salesforce being such a presence in business operations, we've had to "fend off" being asked to replace our QB apps with in-house/out of the box apps from Salesforce. With the cost of Quick Base and having to justify keeping it instead of Salesforce, it's been a challenge we've been fighting.

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

It's highly available. During data center movement only once during weekdays, we found some fluctuations but that was communicated quickly with frequent updates and resolved timely.

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.

I can't sing enough praise for the level of support we receive. I probably have created a trouble ticket about 20 times in the past few years and have had every one of those answered within the same day. Their support team really understands their product which makes it very easy to discuss issues I might be having. They are very kind not to make me feel stupid when we discover the error was my fault.

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

The QuickBase app does everything we needed it to do for the initial implementation. This app has been continuing to grow and develop additional functionality for the project managers and their staff.

Alternatives Considered

We like the platform agnostic approach. At the time we selected it (some years back), the security standard was higher and the price point was lower, and the global reach was at least as strong. It was very easy to get started. For our business, we also looked at Akamai and Vimeo, since we are video based, but they did not offer anywhere near the PaaS suite that AWS did.

Return on Investment

  • EC2 allowed us to create an automated scaling application that monitored both the users and the tests being launched so that Janova could bring up or down workers based on the demand. This allowed us to control the cost of the monthly plan for users across all levels.
  • EC2 allowed us to save on operational infrastructure costs as Janova did not have to invest in hardware or support costs.

  • It has allowed us to achieve our objectives earlier than we expected.
  • It has given us the tools we needed to organize.
  • It has made it possible for us to be more productive in our efforts.
