Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)

Amazon EC2 is being used by our entire company in multiple locations across three countries. We reply on EC2 instances for all of our day-to-day tasks on both the front-end and the back-end. We migrated all of our services from brick-and-mortar data centers to our AWS EC2 instances. It's saved us money, time, and resources while providing a much more efficient and stable environment. It also affords us the ability to scale up and or down our environment without laying out hard costs for equipment.
  • Saves Money
  • Creates Efficiencies
  • Easy to Setup
  • Easy to Manage
  • Minor improvements to the EC2 User Interface
  • Saved us money on quickly outdated servers
  • Clear and concise billing so we understand our bill each month
  • Incredible and flexible service plans
  • Ability to scale when needed both up and down
  • Ability to setup new instances quickly
We tried a few other competitors on the web hosting side of our company and ultimately decided to go with AWS EC2 instances. AWS had the most flexibility, the most choices for different types of instances, a variety of Operating Systems, an incredible infrastructure across multiple regions, and top-notch service/support ready to help with anything 24 hours a day. It also had the services that we needed across its other offerings that we were able to pair with our EC2 instances to create efficient cost-saving network infrastructure.

With a solid plan, we were able to migrate from our physical servers to our EC2 environment much easier than we had anticipated. Once migrated we found even more use cases for EC2 instances including consolidating services into smaller more efficient and cost-effective instances. Because there are so many choices of EC2 instances, we were able to tailor our environment and test different instances before settling. This also afforded us the flexibility of firing up a quick instance when needed and turning it down when we've completed our task. We have some instances that we use once a month that are all set up and ready to go when we need them.
