Overall Satisfaction with Amazon CloudSearch

We use the Amazon Cloudsearch to get queries super fast, and don't have our system loaded to make these queries. CloudSearch is used in our application, so everyone that uses the application will get queries from CloudSearch. One of the business problems that it solves is to get some queries that can take some time in our system.
  • Really fast queries
  • Good Reporting
  • Reduce the cost of the server
  • Can take some time to implement
  • The initial configuration can be tricky
  • Takes some time to update the values
  • Positive Point - Reduced the server load
  • Negative point - Not suitable for all queries
  • Negative Point - Time to implement this feature
I didn't investigate the best alternatives to CloudSearch, but did help with implementing this feature in our application. But from what i tested and used - Cloudsearch is very fast to get queries. Some negative points can be the time to implement this and some configurations that can be tricky.
Amazon Cloudsearch can be suitable for some queries that require fast data. For example, in our case, we used CloudSearch, in a tool called Global Search. That will search everything like names, emails and a lot of stuff in our application. If you want fast data and you have a simple query, Global Search isn't appropriate for you.
