Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Web Services

We create web based software and we always use Amazon as our primary hosting solution. We deploy to EC2 either using Beanstalk or setting up instances ourselves, host databases on RDB, all our DNS are on Route 53, balance load through AWS balancers, all content on S3, for security seasons for a few clients we used AWS VPC with VPN connection.
  • If you use Route 53 your DNS records can be updated almost instantly
  • EC2 gives you enough control over your instances without any hassle
  • RDB does backups for your data so you don't have to worry about database crashes and losing your data at all
  • Beanstalk allows you to deploy apps to AWS and it scales your apps for you. Amazing!
  • I have a number of AWS accounts and it would be cool if I could switch between them without logging out and logging in.
  • AWS is actually the only hosting provider I am using now. It solves all my hosting needs.
  • Heroku,Rackspace
Heroku doesn't give me a level of control I would expect.
Rackspace just sucks in all sense.
This is the only hosting solution I am using and I am not gonna look for any other because I am used to it and it meets my requirements: easy to use without compromising on control I have over my infrastructure. Also, I do live variety of AWS services.
I would recommend AWS to all my colleagues without a single doubt in all cases in which they need to run a server instance.
