Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"One of the most valuable features is that Amazon AWS has a lot of data centers and regions where we can position our virtual machines for leverage. Amazon AWS is also easy to use. You can quickly spin up something, use Explorer, building proofs of concept, things like that. Once the proof of concept is built once and we know how things are going to look from a production perspective, we try to move everything to the data centers. These features and the ease of use are the main reasons why we use AWS.""The most important feature is deploying our production in multi-data regions around the world.""Some of the valuable features I have found to be the virtual server is easy to understand, a secure environment, and AWS has a fast community for finding solutions to problems you might be facing.""Friendly console for implementation.""The availability is good, you can get any service you need immediately.""I like AWS for its scalability, reliability, and availability, and it's much more mature and user-friendly compared to some other cloud providers. The learning curve and time for deployment are also shorter.""The most valuable feature is the backup ability. Most people are used to one type of backup solution that they're using, but most of these solutions have features that make it difficult to transfer to the cloud. I know that Veeam now gives people the opportunity to backup some on-premises solutions to the cloud. This feature is something that a lot of people are looking for.""The capacity to grow dynamically based on our needs is most valuable. We can increase resources dynamically. It is also very reliable and fast to implement."

"The pricing and services that surround the solution are great. For example, if we need to find a partner in a country where they do not have a cloud, they will help us find that partner. Solutions such as Amazon and Oracle do not offer this level of service."

Cons
"Their support can be improved. In some cases, their support is not as proficient as it can be. They should be quicker at getting back.""I think the price can be improved.""The networking is overly complex.""In terms of technical features, I don't see anything missing. The only two points in favor of other providers are the price and local support. The main problem that we see here in Brazil is the price. It is much more expensive than any other cloud provider. Their local support can also be better. We get more support from some of the other providers here in Brazil as compared to AWS.""Price can always be cheaper.""Their metadata management in AWS needs improvement.""The dashboard and interface need improvement.""Its only cons are on the data warehouse side. AWS' data warehouse Redshift is not as good as it should be."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."

    Overview

    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.

    NTT can help you cut the costs of what is typically the most expensive area of your infrastructure while ensuring business continuity by rationalizing, consolidating, and pruning servers, applications, and data centers, eliminating waste, redundancy, and underutilization. With NTT data center capabilities including data center assessment, rationalization/virtualization, planning and implementation, and disaster recovery and business continuity, you can simplify operations, ensure the availability and reliability of servers and devices, and reduce resources, energy, and facility costs.
