Without wasting any time, let’s try to find out through these 5 points if AWS is good enough as a cloud service.
If you are a tech person then you might have already heard that AWS is a flexible cloud computing platform. Now let me ask you, did you know that Amazon offers pay-as-you-go pricing service for over 120 amazing cloud services? Yes, you heard it right! Depending on your individual need you will pay only for those services that you have used.
Moreover, once you stop using those services, you don’t have to pay or bear any additional cost, penalty fee or termination fee for the same. Suppose you are using a service for 8 hours, then be it for 5 users or 500 users, you will pay only the amount decided for 8 hours!
Remember, if your upfront payment is a lump sum, then get ready to enjoy a good discount. Also, AWS provides volume-based discounts.
To make this pricing process more simple, Amazon has introduced TCO calculator and Monthly calculator where you can estimate your monthly bill depending on the usage of your Amazon’s cloud services.
So, you will decide the services you want and the storage space that you think is best for your business.
One of the reasons why cloud computing service is popular among developers and industry people is its speed. If I start lauding AWS’s speed, then probably you will not believe me! So let me give you an example where I and my team tested the speed of AWS Lambda to be sure of its performance.
My team wanted to go with Node.js but I thought to test AWS before choosing any other alternatives. So, we divided the API call logs in smaller segments to plug those into the Node.js script created by developers. Then we uploaded it to AWS Lambda, invoked the function multiple times and recorded the response time along with the request times.
We were able to test the apps faster and improve the website’s performance with the new features and the cost of running the AWS applications was really less as compared to any other alternatives. So we saved cost while achieved a higher performance than expected and that was an achievement.
Flexibility & Scalability
When it comes to flexibility, AWS has made sure that this feature must be one of the main reasons to choose AWS over other cloud computing services. I can tell you the answer to your ‘Why’!
AWS allows users to choose programming languages, database, OS and other services to use in its virtual environment. You can load the required software and applications on cloud and use accordingly.
If you are working on a migration project then,
- Get rid of the headache of ‘Physical Computing Infrastructure’
- Get storage as per your demand
- Access the server as long as you want
- Pay-as-you-go pricing structure

Oh, wait! I missed mentioning the scalability factor. As a project leader or business person, you can scale up or scale down anytime easily to meet your business needs.
Flexibility along with scalability – AWS provides you both for your business.
AWS is already a familiar name to these big names – Kellogg’s, Vodafone, Expedia, Airbnb, Netflix, Nasa, Yelp and the list goes on. These clients preferred AWS not just for its reliability, scalability, and flexibility but also for its security feature!

- AWS is strong enough to protect your customer’s privacy through AWS data centers.

In fact, you can check Amazon VPN if you want to work in a private network. This feature works in a very much similar way like an open source VPN.
Convenient & Easy to use
With AWS, you can communicate more effectively with anyone. In business meetings, if you want to share only a certain portion then you can do that by hiding the other part on the cloud. Well, AWS offers you that authority over your data.
