Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Web Services

We use AWS for our website content distribution network (CDN) as well as hosting files for desktop support management (software updates for example). We use it whenever possible across a number of departments and needs. It helps us provide IT support to our global workforce without needing an on-premises server and complicated network setup. It also makes our web hosting cost much less.
  • Website CDN
  • Caching server for desktop support (software installer files).
  • Reliability, it has been set and forget.
  • It is such a vast product that finding what you need can be a challenge.
  • There is a learning curve, but once you figure it out, it's fairly simple.
  • Saved us at least 25% in hosting costs./
  • Provided us with a very low cost and high uptime cloud deployment server.

If you run a website that uses a CMS and you host it on a server you pay for, it is a great CDN. It is also great if you need to deploy files, software, software updates, or other packages to computers your company manages. If you host a website with an online service, AWS is not necessarily the best option. If you need the best security, AWS may not be the right option. It isn't as secure as some other options.
