We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It's my understanding that our company is charged a few hundred dollars on a monthly basis."
"I find that Amazon AWS is expensive."
"The Oracle licensing is higher than it is with Amazon AWS."
"I think they've done a pretty good job with their pricing."
"Its price is kind of okay. When we do a migration from on-premises to the cloud, we typically use the lift-and-shift model. Based on the studies that we have done, cost savings are definitely there when we moved from on-premises to the cloud."
"The price could be lower."
"There are many variables involved in pricing service in AWS and overall the pricing is a bit on the higher side."
"AWS is not an expensive product."

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.
