Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Web Services

We are using AWS stack as multi geography, multi cluster infrastructure to run data and compute cloud. We are using EC2, S3, SNS, SQS, ELB and Route53 as a part of our major architectural components. This infrastructure is connected via continuous integration/delivery pipeline to leverage fast, focused and frequent feature deployments.
  • Intuitive and easy to use
  • Fast ramp up for beginners
  • Command Line Interface (CLI) support
  • Still lacks openness
  • Data Sovereignty
  • Faster technology and tool selection process. POC to results
  • Disposable infrastructure gives so much liberty and flexibility to create those temporary demo environments
Favorable prices at the time of decision making. Flexibility and part of team had prior knowledge
  • Satisfactory experience
  • Cost control
  • Flexible features
If an organization does not have the time or resources to ramp up and learn cloud culture, tools, technologies and methodologies, then Amazon Web Services may not give instant results which many expect out of it. Clustered run time stack, multi regions, security groups and IAM roles - all of these are new for many conventional developers and must be learned to get the best out of AWS.
