Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Web Services

We use AWS as the infrastructure provider for our entire global operations. From DNS down to database systems, we are using services powered by AWS.
  • Automated server provisioning.
  • Load balancing.
  • Hassle-free OS updates.
  • Hard to get support (even you pay extra for paid support services).
  • Expensive compared to the competition.
  • Regional outages may occur.
  • AWS gave us the flexibility of having one to thousands of servers from day one.
  • We did not have to invest in the servers from day one and we had a saving of 40%.
  • As AWS is expensive compared to its competition, our opex grew higher than the companies using other services from AWS competitors.
AWS is more reliable and has more coverage worldwide in terms of servers. AWS is more expensive but for the service quality, enterprise companies can spend more.
AWS is well-suited for mid-to-large scale operations. I do not recommend them for small companies with local operations, as it may be expensive and hard to setup/provision. Companies using AWS may need extra DevOps people to manage AWS resources in order to have the right resource with the rigth price. Mid-to-large scale companies can manage AWS more effectively and leverage their services efficiently.
