Pros

Very convenient, very good. I really like their customer service, they are great and very very helpful.
I really like their customer service, they are great and very very helpful.
I've been extremely impressed with Amazon's open source integration into virtually all other services especially e-commerce which is why I recommend this app.

Pros

The pleasure of sharing important content such as videos and graphics that I want to share in a comfortable, fast and secure way without any restrictions is invaluable.
Microsoft Azure is a great platform that provides secure and reliable data sources for our company which is very important. It is easy to use and very effective software.
Azure gives you the peace of mind of a super powerful machine with adequate storage for you to do your job.

Cons

EC2's billing flexibility is a downside in that it's very difficult to give "off the cuff" estimates for how much a given EC2 setup might cost.
Sometimes it gets into deadlock state from which itself restarts it and we have seen the erasing of the data.
Really it's difficult to remember a time before EC2, getting a new hardware instance was typically weeks or months of effort, now it can be done in seconds.

Cons

In Brazil, being charged on a dollar basis is very expensive, it is difficult to pass this on to the customer. The recent 21% readjustment was abusive.
Also, if you forgot a DEV machine on over the night, with no need, you will be charged.
I received and email (turns out from a Bot) and this was ignored apart from a missed call from someone, who I then could not get hold of.

Microsoft Azure

Great platform even for small companies

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

We have been using the Azure platform for over a year. Most of our experts on working with virtual machines do not have much experience. But a lot of experience is not needed to work on Microsoft Azure, because even a novice can deploy a virtual machine. I believe that this is an ideal solution for small companies that cannot attract experienced professionals.

Cons

Microsoft Azure is not as popular as Google Cloud Platform or Amazon EC2, so there is little information on how to solve problems on the Internet. For help often have to contact support.
