Amazing app to go with for startups, provides 30GB free space, fast,reliable ,cost saving service and easy to use on any OS. Its EBS(elastic book store) feature is adds on.

Its highly configurable and scalable, so need to learn alot to utilize its features. Its not a con though but can be made even more user friendly, i liked all its features.

Only good if you are willing to learn TONS of new terminology

Reviewed 6 months ago

We needed a diverse server platform setup each instance serving a different purpose. AWS allowed for us to do that but we had to outsource the whole project as it's just not simple to set that up. So all in all it's been a pain to use and manage.

Pros

I liked the ease of upgrading your instance or adding volumes.

Cons

Pretty much everything else, all of terminology is foreign and complex, finding anything in the dashboard is absolute nightmare. The billing is not clear or transparent. If all you need is a server for your app/business this is not the place to go unless.
