Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a subsidiary of Amazon that provides on-demand cloud computing services. With over 165 services offered, AWS services can provide users with a comprehensive suite of infrastructure and computing building blocks and tools.https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/F5/0A/920CWTJUFVTN.pngAmazon Web Services (EC2)EC2 makes it very quick and efficient to launch specific "builds" of your virtual machine image, if configured. EC2 makes it very easy to find off the shelf "builds" of specific applications and services that might meet the needs of the company. EC2 makes it very easy to understand the status and health of your virtual machines with just a few clicks.,While the documentation is robust it is sometimes difficult to get access to an actual person who might be able to help with the design of your application and what Amazon service is most applicable.,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.,9,9,Janova utilized the EC2 platform to launch our automated software testing tool, Janova, to run automated web tests securely in the cloud. EC2 allowed Janova to leverage the cloud capabilities to give every user the power of an extensive infrastructure without having to actually invest in one. EC2 allowed Janova to make it possible for users to run automated tests - up to 20 times more tests in the same amount of time.,,,Implemented in-house,8,Online training Self-taught,7,EC2 has many features that require teams to try different implementations in order to fit their needs so learning without formalized training can help, but it can also be a hindrance if teams head in the wrong direction.,No,7AWS is awesome. Love working with it.AWS provides a very easy way of "pay-as-you-go" for every service they provide. That makes it easy for any company to scale up and down as the business dictates. AWS provides services that inter-operate with each other very well making it them very valuable, like s3 storage being used by hadoop-elastic mapreduce, or being able to notify by email service that a load is done, etc.. AWS fees are clear and easy to estimate, absolutely nothing is hidden,A lot of functionality is still accessible only with a CLI, they can be exposed to the UI/console,10,Faster time to market Increased employee efficiency,10,10Hard to go wrong with AWS!The development and administration tools work well, including a consistent API and adequate management console. In terms of business process, it provided an effective "escape valve" for new product development that would have been much more onerous to deploy if we had to provision physical hardware and arrange for associated IT resources.,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.,It would be difficult to quantify the ROI exactly, but it virtually eliminates capital expenditures on hardware and at least halves the need for IT labor.,8,8,50,4,It is used to host a set of custom services (built and deployed as Java web applications) to supplement a primary application that runs within the Salesforce platform.,,,Implemented in-house,10,Self-taught,It was relatively easy for a developer to learn how to use it for simple scenarios. Setting up more complex virtual infrastructure with multiple tiers, redundancy and failover is more of a challenge to to take on from scratch, but a number of companies offer support in the form of deployment templates and additional services.,Once you get to the point of configuring your machines, there is not much difference between physical and virtual. You still need to maintain the operating system, configure networking, etc.,No,5,9,9,,Salesforce,No.,,We did not negotiate.
