What do you like best?
I'm a big fan of SQL Server 2014 and the web edition is a lower-priced, easily licensed version, that you can run on your web server - in this case, Windows Server 2012. What this means is you can easily run Microsoft-based (i.e. .NET, etc.) apps on a web server hosted outside of your organisation gaining flexibility and security, while using a stack your developers are comfortable with.
What do you dislike?
There's nothing to dislike, but it is worth noting newer versions exist. SQL Server 2016 provides more in-memory functionality, plus query store, etc., while more modern versions of Windows Server exist. However, if you're running a light web server older versions of these products still cut it fine. Just be sure to have a web application firewall or something else to keep you protected from vulnerabilities.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
We used it for hosting our public-facing website on commercial (external) hosting with a dedicated server. It allowed our .NET devs to make a great web application on a robust platform that they were familiar with, and also to draw data into Power BI and other analytical tools.

What do you like best?
Good experience with ec2 and ms sql, comes with ready to use and can connect seamlessly
What do you dislike?
I think ms sql on dedicated server option was not available, it should be because sql serves in some use cases tend to be resource hungry so having them on dedicated servers have more value.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
Traditional DB server in cloud and accessible from anywhere, flexibility.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Using it optimized would give more results, try to use only required services
