Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)

This excellent tool is used by our company to streamline the web development process, along with other tools offered by AWS. EC2 has great versatility, since it can be used as a VPS, which allows several people to work in the same project remotely, it is perfect for scalable projects, and allows for the activation of several instances and different hardware configurations according to the needs of the project.
  • It is very good as a mainframe, for web projects, webapps, databases, etc.
  • It is the ideal tool for scalable projects, because it is pay-as-you-go.
  • It has a high-speed internet connection.
  • It has a high level of security, and a very useful control panel from the web that allows you to use the console without having to start the instance.
  • It is very versatile and the mainstay for many other functions offered by AWS.
  • Having so many options makes it complex to understand how to start an instance, or configure it.
  • If the key generated to enter the VPS is lost, all the information is lost and there is no way to access it again.
  • Having multiple instances at the same time is really expensive.
  • The commands to use the console are somewhat complex.
  • The first time it was used, we made the mistake of opening several instances, which cost us a considerable sum of money. From that moment we learned to use it more efficiently.
  • It has been a great help, since it allows US to streamline the management and development of various projects. In addition to that, we are sure that everything is hosted in the cloud, and have the reliability that we can always access them.
  • In terms of time, which is equal to money, it has saved us a lot of time, which is why it is a very efficient tool. It allows us to develop projects from 0 to 100, managing the investment at each level of the project.
  • AWS Cloud9, AWS CodePipeline, AWS WAF and AWS Lambda
AWS EC2 is the mainstay of several AWS tools, with CodeBuild that includes AWS Cloud9, and CodePipeline, which allow us to work quickly, efficiently, for all the work team, regardless of whether it is remotely or locally, always keeping the progress saved in the cloud. With Lambda it can be compiled at any time in a fast way, with AWS WAF we protect the different connections, since it provides a high level of security, without having to configure too much, in general all the tools work perfectly with EC2, speeding up the development time of the different projects.

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud EC2 is excellent for testing, developing scalable projects, and has a free layer that allows novice users to experiment with a VPS for free, ideal if it is going to be used along with the other AWS tools. If EC2 is the only tool that will be used, it is not so recommendable, since its strength lies in the good synergy it has with the other AWS tools.
