Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"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 most valuable features are unlimited storage, scalability, and performance.""The main aspect we like is that it's been easy to use.""Enables content sharing by multiple users.""The initial setup is not difficult or overly complex. It's very straightforward and easy to implement.""This solution is good at storing historical data and we were using it for other purposes.""It is easy to manage and easy to understand."

Cons
"The pricing and licensing are pretty complex.""They could always increase object storage ability.""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.""Technical support could have a faster response time.""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.""The only pain point is migrating the life cycle policy because if someone is a newbie, they cannot easily create the life cycle policy.""It could maybe use more integration."

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."

  • "I can only tell you that Wasabi costs about half what Amazon Web Services is charging. Now, the cost per month is a more difficult question. That varies depending on the capacity, the services you're employing, and that type of thing."
