"Works very quickly and is well managed."
"The environment is a rich playground, and if you tried to do the same things on-premises that you do on AWS, it would be a lot more challenging to execute. You can open up a virtual machine on AWS, run some experiments, and be done with it. It's much easier than buying new servers, provisioning them, etc"
"I am happy with the dashboard."
"One of the features offered is scalability on demand."
"We pretty much like everything and we are excited about the seamless capability the EC2 service is offering."
"The product has a lot of new functionality."
"I like the flexibility of this solution."
"Setting up AWS was pretty easy. It was straightforward to set up, and it took us a year to develop and migrate our mobile banking solution to the AWS cloud. Our migration experience was quite positive."
"It is easy to deploy what you need for the initial setup"
"There is no installation for this product because it is a cloud product."
"The availability is second to none. Customer support is very good."
"I've found the stability to be excellent. The performance is good."
"This is a predictable and dependable service."
"One of the features that I really like about IBM Cloud is the flexibility where you can order your own hardware."
"For non-complex applications, the IBM Cloud works fine and the price is much lower than the competitors."
"The dashboard and interface need improvement."
"I'm just bugged by the charges that I'm not really able to manage."
"Amazon AWS could improve by being more secure and adding more features."
"One problem is that the AWS public cloud doesn't have shared storage capabilities. The second thing is the cloud performance versus on-prem."
"I would appreciate more direct support from AWS."
"The solution is pretty mature."
"There is a bit of a learning curve. That said, it's likely no different than learning any other cloud."
"Our API Management solution is integrated with Lambda, and last year, we had an issue while upgrading Lambda from version 8.0 to version 10. It seemed like Lambda runtime was changed by AWS, and there was a bug that caused the downtime. The loading of the dashboard is slow. It could be because I am located in China."
"They do not have a very good virtual network implemented, and the VPC is the most important feature that needs to be improved."
"The initial setup and the pricing are areas that need improvement."
"It could be more secure."
"The deployment can be a bit of a pain. There are a lot of packages and a lot of options and it can require complex configuration to get it right."
"The product should offer more computing, similar to Amazon."
"There is not a lot of support for this solution, which is something that needs to be improved."
"They could improve on customizing reporting capabilities."
Amazon Web Services (AWS), is a collection of cloud computing services, also called web services, that make up a cloud-computing platform offered by Amazon.com. These services operate from 12 geographical regions across the world. The most central and well-known of these services arguably include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, also known as "EC2", and Amazon Simple Storage Service, also known as "S3". Amazon markets AWS as a service to provide large computing capacity more quickly and more cheaply than a client company building an actual physical server farm.
