Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Web Services

  • 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
  • Faster time to market
  • Increased employee efficiency
If you want to hear from car-dealer like vendors who promise "best pricing directly from their CFO" then you will miss AWS. AWS pricing is righteous and right!

Using Amazon Web Services

A paradigm shift from companies like Microsoft that have made procuring and using software and license so hard. Not to mention installing, configuring and hiring folks to maintain it. AWS makes it so easy to have an enterprise infrastructure that scales up and down and very affordable
