Initially, the appeal of AWS was the ease of managing and customizing the stack. It was great to be able to ramp up more servers without having to contact anyone and without having minimum usage commitments. As our company continued to grow, so did our reliance on the AWS Cloud and now, we've adopted almost all of the features AWS provides. AWS is the easy answer for any Internet business that wants to scale to the next level.
