"Best Solution Set In The Market"

What do you like best?

The products work as promised, and exceed our expectations in almost all cases. When things go wrong, AWS handles in a way I wish every vendor would.

What do you dislike?

Moving a large, complex set of workloads requires developing a lot of in house expertise. While AWS has a number of extremely skilled folks that helped us with the task, there is still opportunity to explore models of engagement that would make the inevitable troubleshooting/etc smoother.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recruit fresh talent to augment existing internal staff. Conceptual changes in approach are challenging to some longtime IT engineering and architecture staff. The move to AWS, and, indeed any provider, requires thoughtful refactoring of solutions. Having experienced engineers who are not emotionally attached to their existing solution or approach is helpful when migrating existing solutions. AWS will provide support / guidance / best practice examples, but those often miss the nuances of your specific use case.

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

We would ensure that stakeholders across our enterprise were more involved as we started out of the gates. We have large, traditional hosting and operations organizations that have established methodologies for these areas and work in established ways with the development organization. Identifying a group of cross-cutting stakeholders who can recognize and adapt to the advantages offered in general by public cloud iaas and paas would perhaps have avoided some of the internal obstacles experienced as we broadened the scope and scale of use down the road.

"Easy to use and manage my servers"

What do you like best?

The best part is the speed and ease of access while using the management console. Using the management console it is very easy to create/terminate a server and also monitor or change the server properties.

It gives us a unified space to manage a huge variety of AWS services that we may be using for our projects.

A unified billing dashboard allows to minutely see the details of which service is costing us how much and also gives us an estimate of how much will we have to pay by the end of the month

What do you dislike?

I do not like the UI much. The UI could have been much better considering that it has been so long since AWS has been operational now. It still looks like a very naive approach to design.

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

I am trying to run EC2 instances which have been dockerized to run my Machine learning model to successfully find out the answers to medical questions from relevant answer snippets

What Enterprise IT Management Suites solution do you use?

"AWS Management Console Is Not The Most Intuitive To Use."

What do you like best?

AWS Management Console Is Not The Most Intuitive To Use But if you read the support instructions you can work your way through it. I would say it's not a tool for entry-level users, but if you know what you want the support probably exists to show you how to do it.

What do you dislike?

Easier to use and understand. Sometimes functions are hidden in places that I would not expect them to be.

Recommendations to others considering the product

More intuitive to use. Easier to access guides and support

"AWS Management Console has a great UI"

What do you like best?

When I first tried Aws management console I was surprised that a “web service” comes without a web browser based UI. It has to be managed with amazon API command tools, however as these tools are still required because the AWS console doesn’t offer all the features. I was still very surprised and happy with the software.

What do you dislike?

Now that the web interface supports most important functions. It’s easy to only want to use AWS, so therefore I have no dislikes about the AWSmanagement console.

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

We really solved the problem of having too many softwares. By using AWS and all its amazing functions and capabilities we find ourselves only needing one platform rather than multiple previously.

"Amazon Capabilities"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of use and the visual appeal that the tool has. There are so many different options to be able to manage servers and monitor them. Alerts, called CloudWatch Alarms, can be set up as another monitoring or management tool and is a really useful browser-based GUI for cloud computing that we use. It is nice being able to have a tool that provides management of EC2 instances and use of the S3 storage buckets, a way to connect multiple amazon services.

What do you dislike?

There really isn't anything to dislike, there are a number of opportunities to grow and learn about new technologies that may never be used for business purposes but it is nice to have them.

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

We are using this to manage cloud instances and the storage aspect of it, it is a really useful tool when transitioning to a cloud based environment

"Best cloud services provider!"

What do you like best?

AWS is the best cloud service provider in the internet. AWS is very complete and allows you to provision multiple servers on demand to fill your needs. AWS Console is very easy to user and powerful. Also it has a lot of help links and services to learn what each feature does.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it is a bit hard to navigate and find the options you are looking for. This is due to the fact that it is very powerful but does come at the expense of training and ramping up on how to use AWS. It can be a bit intimidating at first but once you learn the basics it is very easy to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I totally recommend AWS and AWS console. It works very well and it is very powerful. Most of the functionality can be deployed right away without much time spent reading tutorials or manuals. This tool is very useful for any system administrator that needs to scale server or services on the internet.

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

We are using it to provision our servers and scale.

"AWS Management Console for Test Environments"

What do you like best?

The ease of use to check the status of the on demand environments being created or to kick off the creation of an environment based on the supplied config files to the console.

What do you dislike?

So far the usage has been smooth sailing. We are very impressed by what we have used it for. I am yet to see an issue or a design flaw.

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

Creating on demand test environments.

Checking statuses of environments in use

"Simple, straightforward and easy to use"

What do you like best?

The layout is very simple and easy to use, even for people who have never accessed it before.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I dislike about the product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check costs first as some things can be more expensive than doing them locally.

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

It easily displays everything that is required to complete an IT person's job role. It puts everything in one place making it easier to navigate, but also separates the different regions so as not to confuse people.

"Useful but interface is intimidating and hard to find what you need"

"AWS is a great console once familiar"

What do you like best?

The console has many features available. It allows for very granular control of public cloud resources. Features are located in categories easy to understand and locate.

What do you dislike?

The inability to change item names can make things confusing. All options are always available, complicating simple installs.

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

Instant compute, public DNS, and cloud availability. High availability.

"Great Overview of all the AWS instances and functions running at once"

What do you like best?

I really like the dashboarding features that AWS has placed. It gives you access to the dashboards of all of AWS modules/features that exist

What do you dislike?

I don't like the fact that there isn't enough data shown without having to use the dashboard to move to a specific instance. It should provide a better overview.

Recommendations to others considering the product

AWS Management Console is a complimentary feature when using AW.

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

N/A, this feature exists to interface with AWS.
