"Allows you to organize data from different AWS services and automate tasks in AWS resources"

What do you like best?

I like Amazon Web Services because is an excelent tool both for people and for companies, because a system or an application can be deployed in an very fast enviroment like EC2, and using any of their existing tools, such as S3. AWS is more reliable and also secure as most of the business data information would be passed and so it should be properly encrypted and follow other security measures to prevent any data from getting leaked while communicating between the applications. AWS is more flexible and scalable with more bandwidth and storage capabilities. AWS is highly customizable and is easy to use, the learning curve for its main functions is relatively easy and well documented, application programming interfaces (APIs) are accessible and also is available in many regions. It has variety of tools at your disposal and the S3 interface is being well laid out and easy to organize. It constantly innovates and iterates, announcing new features several times per year and the price is very competitive in the market.

What do you dislike?

If you manage many accounts AWS, management can become somewhat disorganized bacause it does not offer many tools for internal control, also it has many tools at your disposal, but you may not know them all. They could see how to promote and introduce the tools that you use less to display its advantages. While the documentation is robust it is sometimes difficult to get access to an actual person who might be able to help with the design of your application and what Amazon service is most applicable.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a consultant, as such, I provide software solutions and consulting services to customers with different needs. AWS gives me the tools to cover much of their needs, so it is for me a key tool in the performance of my activities, I really like how clean is the S3 interface, it's simple and effective and allows me to do my post-weekend tasks easily and quickly and also AWS peremptorily lowers costs a couple of times per year.

"Powerful service for power users"

What do you like best?

It does require some experience with the cloud and coding to really get the most out of it. But there is plenty of resources to learn on the go and some services like WordPress can be installed with the click of a button.

What do you dislike?

It is not made for novices. So there is a lot of trial by fire for beginners. However, it is easy to master when you know what you are doing.
