The solution could improve by having more automation. Nowadays there is a vast variety of automation. Additionally, infrastructure monitoring could improve.

I would like to see a feature included that has the capability to clone when an instance is being terminated. We have a few instances with the internal firewall. If for example, I am going to run Linux, and the firewall is open, sometimes it becomes difficult to debug the issue. Also, when you connect from another device, and if the internal IP address table is not deleted, the firewall will be enabled there. There is no clear understanding of where the issue is. If you connect externally, you have to install SFTP. I would like debugging capabilities included.

The technical support needs to be improved. From a usage perspective, it runs well, although there may be a use case where it will break that I have not yet come across.

Ask set of questions like expected number of users, redundancy, up time per day and etc when creating a new instance. This would help the user to choose the right EC2 configurations.
