We have ordered regularly from Amazon…

We have ordered regularly from Amazon…We have ordered regularly from Amazon over the past 6-7 years. When we needed help from Amazon with a shipment from "LYRA Pets GMBH", where the seller refused to refund despite the fact that the item was completely broken and unusable upon arrival, we turned to Amazon for help. 1. They refused to post our review of LYRA and the shipment, with no explanation at all. 2. They rejected our request for help with no explanation at all and no option to reply back. 3. We wrote another, rephrased review, of "LYRA" and the shipment and it was supposed to be posted within 48 hours but Amazon has simply ignored this review. We are disappointed and feeling belittled. When a company becomes an institution like Amazon has, it has privileges and responsibilities alike. This case reveals their utter arrogance.

Never use their storage services…

Never use their storage services includ. cloud. Do read carefully their contract: your data is theirs.Avoid AWS to protect your data and confidentiality.

"I only pay for what I use, how better can it get!"

What do you like best?

One of the biggest things about this program that I absolutely love is the fact that you are only charged for what you used. That alone makes Amazon SES great in my book because I know that I am only paying for the features that I have used over the period of time. It's also very flexible in connecting to various other software/programs etc.

What do you dislike?

It can be a bit tricky to figure out how to use the backend for those who are not tech-savvy. As a result, I think that might be something that they can try to improve a little bit. But other than that I'd say it's pretty impressive.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it in tangent with another program that allows me to send thousands of emails through my Gmail account. It makes it easy, simple, effective and an overall no-brainer to get those emails out daily. I don't have to worry about delivery or bounce either, which is something I can't say for plenty other similar services.

AWS has ruined Cloud 9

AWS absorbed the original Cloud 9. Ever since Cloud 9 has not worked as did before, which is to say it is full of problems. I've had two issues pending with support since June 17, and they have not yet been resolved. I couldn't even download my project so that I could continue working locally and had to rebuild the entire thing.I do not recommend this service if other options are available to you.

Awesome service

Awesome service. I had the free tier for a year, and because it was restricted to only one instance, I had to pay 11$ for another instance for a month's usage. I was without doubt my flaw, because I didn't read the conditions thoroughly, but when contacted the service and told them that it was unintentionally to extend the free tier, I was refunded the 11$. Extraordinary service
