Amazon web services or AWS was started in 2006 to offer online services for client-side applications and other websites. It provides a comprehensive cloud computing platform that allows users to utilize web interfaces for a variety of different purposes such as launching multiple instances of operating systems, loading them with tailor-made applications, running your images, and/or managing network resources.

Also known as EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud), it permits you to operate virtual servers for multiple applications at a very low cost. It is flexible, scalable, and fast, but there are problems with the AWS server. This is mostly due to the fact that they have different locations all over the world known as ‘availability regions’. These regions have physical machines called ‘availability zones’.

  • The Lifetime of Virtual Hardware is Short

It is true that the lifetime of real hardware is much longer than that of virtual hardware. On an average, the lifetime of AWS server virtual machine is around 200 days. This has to be kept in your mind while setting up an AWS server in order to save up valuable time in replacing boxes.

  • An Entire Zone Fails

The real challenge of setting up an AWS server lies in the fact that the whole zone is bound to fail, rather than just a single box. Even if you have set up a master and a slave in a single zone, there is no point in doing so as you will end up losing both. Furthermore, you won’t be able to retrieve any form of data if the box dies.

  • The Cloud is Too Fast

If you are thinking that how can this be a problem, then think again. The cloud is fast and agile, and it has the ability to manage user inputs automatically. When you are setting up an AWS server, you have to make sure that your system is able to meet the dynamic and demanding nature of the server.

  • Lack of Integration

When you are setting up an AWS server, there is no effective solution in making user accounts across the AWS server’s infrastructure. AWS does offer a directory solution, but that is only applicable to windows-based desktops and servers. So the process of manually creating users on servers is a time-consuming procedure that affects productivity.

  • Cross-Platform Complexity

Nowadays, there are many different solutions from multiple providers, rather than just Microsoft. For example, Linux has grown over the years to be a cost-effective platform for servers. The multiple platforms and providers have added a depth of complexity to the setting up of an AWS server.

Furthermore, the infrastructure for authentication has to be cloud scalable in similarity to the environment. This proves to be expensive and needs special skills to carry it out.

  • Price to Performance Ratio

The performance of an AWS server is slow as compared to the price you pay to utilize it. Statistically speaking, it can be 1 to 5 times more expensive and 2 to 8 times slower. As more and more powerful and faster processors are being released in the market, AWS cloud computing is becoming slower and expensive.
