We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Enables content sharing by multiple users.""This solution is good at storing historical data and we were using it for other purposes.""Amazon S3 has multiple types of data detection. You can store data on a monthly basis, yearly basis, and long term basis.""Some of the most valuable features are how convenient and easy to use S3 is. It's nicely integrated with AWS and is available on the AWS console.""The initial setup is not difficult or overly complex. It's very straightforward and easy to implement.""It is easy to manage and easy to understand.""The main aspect we like is that it's been easy to use.""The most valuable features are unlimited storage, scalability, and performance."

Cons
"The only pain point is migrating the life cycle policy because if someone is a newbie, they cannot easily create the life cycle policy.""They could always increase object storage ability.""The security model can be improved as it is a bit confusing.""We need the mapping to Windows. That feature is needed in S3. That feature is in the Azure cloud where we can map it like a drive. We can map the cloud storage to the effort driving our Windows PC. But Amazon is not providing that feature for the S3 solution.""Technical support could have a faster response time.""When we need to find the queries there is no user interface, it is the only textual format that is bulky. If we need some data we will use Athena for queries and we will get results. When comparing this solution to others, such as DataDog, they provide a wonderful UI, and user-friendly dashboards, and many other features that this solution is lacking.""It could maybe use more integration.""The pricing and licensing are pretty complex."

More Amazon S3 Cons →

"It's already fast, but still, they could improve the speed.""They should base their strategy according to the country and the regulations there, and focus more on the on-premises deployment.""Deployment is overly complex and could be streamlined."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The licensing is pay as you go, and I'm happy with the pricing."
  • "The cost of storage is cheap. However, the cost to have a better interface can get expensive. We are using Athena for this purpose and if we did some heavy queries the cost will start adding up. When the Athena query is running, it will scan the bucket and they charge for how many GBs we are going to scan. The function of scanning has a lot of costs attached to it, this is a negative point."

  • "Price is always an area that could be made better, as it is quite expensive."

    Overview

    Amazon Simple Storage Service is storage for the Internet. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers.

    Amazon S3 has a simple web services interface that you can use to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It gives any developer access to the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, inexpensive data storage infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites. The service aims to maximize benefits of scale and to pass those benefits on to developers.

    Oracle Database Backup Service is a secure, scalable, on-demand solution for storing Oracle Database backups in Oracle Cloud.

    Oracle databases are backed up to Oracle Database Backup Service using the Oracle Database Cloud Backup Module. The module is available from Oracle Technology Network (OTN) and is tightly integrated with Recovery Manager (RMAN), so you can continue to use familiar RMAN commands for backup and restore operations.
