Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Web Services

SenseAgility uses a 100% cloud based infrastructure based completely within Amazon AWS. From test environments to corporate email, we were able to find solutions for everything within this offerings package.
  • Broad range of offerings
  • Pay by use
  • No required contracts
  • RAM is expensive!
  • Anything outside of T, C, or M class is expensive.
  • Security groups are not as granular as a real firewall.
  • Promotes unsafe practices of universal ssh keys.
  • *.micro instances are very economical
  • Very cheap demo environment because the API can be hooked to spin up and tear down development and QA servers.
AWS is more expensive than the cheap cloud providers, but it is worth it. My other cloud providers provide two nines of uptime, while AWS promises 3 but delivers 4 or more. If you can afford to build your own cloud, that may be a better option, but few companies want to pay for their own infrastructure and the engineers to maintain it.
This offerings suite is perfect for small to medium sized businesses. If you are big enough to outgrow most of the AWS offerings, you probably have enough money to build your own cloud.
