“We view AWS Support as an extension of our DevOps and engineering teams and can, at any time, get into details to understand systems or incidents with the help of the AWS Support experts. We get access to the AWS Personal Health Dashboard, which helps us plan out our ops activities in advance, and AWS Trusted Advisor, which enables our ops team to centrally monitor our environment and take preventative actions. With a relatively small engineering team we are confident about being totally self-sufficient because we know AWS Support has our back when we need it the most.”
