Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Web Services

Currently, I use AWS for different applications based on client requirements. I work with digital marketing mobile applications using open-source technologies. Namely Apache, PHP and MySQL. Using AWS to create an instant infrastructure from ground-up allows faster innovation in bringing different solutions to the market. AWS’s pay-as-you-go model allows for a lower upfront investment.
  • Technical information availability.
  • Open source.
  • A lot of business cases coming from different vertical customers.
  • Integration with enterprise private cloud
  • Support Services.
  • Training cost.
  • Positive: Faster provisioning of infrastructure.
  • Positive: Lower upfront costs.
  • Negative: Integration of AWS to enterprise apps.
  • Azure
A lot of companies are Microsoft users. It would be good if AWS would work closely with Microsoft. AWS had been working very hard in reaching out to different business verticals and making business cases for using the cloud. AWS's way of coming out with new services faster gives it an edge compared to other cloud providers.
AWS is good to use for application services that require an instant infrastructure build. Having this available minimizes the waiting time in putting up the needed systems to allow applications to run. For those systems that require very high computational requirements and security, I think it's still recommended to run it on-premise.
