Support is effective, and we were able to get any problems that we couldn't get solved through community discussion forums solved for us by the AWS support team. For example, we were assisted in one instance where we were not sure about the best metrics to use in order to optimize an auto-scaling group on EC2. The support team was able to look at our metrics and give a useful recommendation on which metrics to use.

Amazon does a great job in providing documentation, guides for implementation and the community because of the broad adoption also has additional guides, articles and support groups for the environment. I've also been very happy with AWS tech support in providing guidance and answers to questions regarding CloudWatch.

AWS has different levels of support, the basic level isn't really the great stuff. But take into consideration millions of users use this cloud provider, so finding help in open forums is really good. Most of the problems you encounter are easy to find and this is really good for the end user.

Support from Amazon has been helpful when needed. I enjoyed the fact that the support agent that received the request will follow-up during the entire support workflow.
