Pros Easily scalable. Able to get email/mobile notifications if issues with servers. An easy to use and navigate GUI. Cons Price! I know it’s more tailored to large enterprise, so some price structures seem quite extreme for small to medium size business . Conclusion Amazon Web Services is well suited for us as we don’t have to deal with physical infrastructure and want a high level of security and availability. Though if our needs increase in the future, we will have to revisit if it’s still cost efficient to pay per min or built local infrastructure.
