Simply the best ROI in the business.

I dig the cheapness! It's possible to run little microsites in the static S3 buckets for pennies. It takes a minute to configure everything, and AWS configs can be unforgiving when mistakes are made, but it's worth the time sunk into the project to reduce infrastrure costs elsewhere.

Great tools and infrastructure. Amazing user interface. Features and functionality for scaling, adapting, and implementing new environments is incredible when compared to how things were done, just a few years back. There is a gap for small to medium size businesses who need some support, but not much, and the cost of that support if done with Amazon. 10% of your spend for level A-, can be as low as $100 per month if you spend $1,000/ month. Then to get the next level it is a huge jump. Not practical actually. As we have now worked with AWS for over 4 years, we do see some odd approaches to some items. 1 example is when a server is 'Retired' according to some schedule that is not disclosed publicly. In the end, we may need to move to another server, in a different environment, on less than 2 weeks notice. No other options. This is difficult to do with production servers with multiple clients on each server. Disruptions in service also are experienced at times, with no resolution or admittance of issue from AWS. Yes, we can see the green lights indicating service is fine, but something must be going on at some level. It is easy to direct issue to internet pipes, or another outside of AWS issues, but often it doesn't add up, and there is no information available outside of "everything seems to be running here." If we paid $15,000 per month support, we may have access to real answers. Overall, very happy with the capabilities, ease of use, and up-time of the AWS cloud.

The transition was quick and smooth. Amazon provided us all the tools we needed in order to complete the migration to the cloud.

Outstanding experience. Easy. Flexibile. When issues arose, answers were timely and accurate. Love the scalability and the continual innovative approach to services. Looking into doing more.

The ability to scale environments and contain that all into a VPC that is flexible enough to control and secure has been amazing so far. We've hit 1 or 2 hiccups with teams occasionally, but the turnarounds have been quite rapid. For example, there was this incident last month where our one of the teams had built services in AWS. And at some point, 1/3 of their service calls began failing. This was due to an expansion of new IP address ranges that AWS has added to the region our VPC was using, while our service calls were only limited to the previous range that we had living on some whitelist configuration. Once we let them know what was wrong, it was only a matter of updating the whitelist.

It was an overall good experience moving the in-house VMs into the cloud which gave us better monitoring and better security. Also, the cost was very less when compared to have inhouse servers.
