Likelihood to Recommend

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.

Redis Cloud

Redis Cloud is very well suited for scenarios where fast data access is required or somewhat unstructured data needs to be stored. For us, it has worked very well for user session storage. However, if you have large amounts of structured data that is not frequently accessed, Redis is not the solution and a traditional relational database is likely more appropriate.

Redis Cloud

  • Being in memory, it is extremely fast for both storage and retrieval of information.
  • The architecture of Redis is such that it allows great flexibility in terms of how data is stored and is not resource heavy.
  • Being in the cloud allows us to easily scale and not worry about maintaining hardware/resources which allows us to focus our time on our product.

Cons

Amazon Web Services

  • I'm afraid you're going to have to go somewhere else for improvement suggestions because I have none!

Redis Cloud

  • The only area of improvement I have found is the documentation is sometimes lacking and could be a little more comprehensive.

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.

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 really seems to strike the right balance between other tools and offers the most of what we need in a single platform

Redis Cloud

We primarily selected Redis Cloud for 3 reason—it's performance and reliability, the overall low cost, and it can easily be scaled to meet our needs as we grow. More secondary to those reasons were the ease of use and how it could be used within our current technology stack without issue.
