Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Web Services

We are using Amazon Web Services in various of our internal tools and also in our product. We deployed our API server over EC2. Other than EC2 we are using many other services like RDS, Load balancers, Firewall, S3, Route 53 and many other services for our different products and tools.
  • Starting an instance and accessing it for testing purpose, demo or production deployment its always easy.
  • All the things which are available over AWS are pretty well managed and easy to use.
  • You might find everything you required for an product and other development over AWS.
  • Its suitable for both either an enterprise or an startup
  • Various resources and documentation are available in case you struck somewhere.
  • Amazon market place is great but its not that straight forward to subscribe then activate it in your instance. Example Openvpn.
  • Sometimes its really hard to choose the correct configuration which is suitable for your product as well pocket.
  • You need to be experienced if you want to use AWS effectively and efficiently
  • many of our manual work has been shifted to lambda server.
  • Work related to sending user automated notifications and other things are deployed over AWS.
  • Having a managed database is reducing the cost for a specialised DBA.
Amazon Web Services fits best for all levels of organisations like startup, mid level or enterprise. The services are easy to use and doesn't require a high level of understanding as you can learn via blogs or youtube videos. AWS is Reasonable in cost as the plan is pay as you use.

Do you think Amazon Web Services delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Amazon Web Services's feature set?

Yes

Did Amazon Web Services live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Amazon Web Services go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Amazon Web Services again?

Yes

More suited I will say deploying your Web-server, Running some cloud applications, Deploying your micro-services, Managed database. Less suited is really hard to say but there can be some scenario where you can use free services like Google spreadsheet scripting for smaller data management and small workflows. Workflow automation is something you need multiple vendors to talk to each other at that time its preferred to go for something else.
