AWS is highly discouraged for new SlickStack users, why is that?SeanGuest
hate is a strong word! SlickStack just says to be careful with AWS because it is very confusing and complicated for users new to cloud servers.
for example you need to pay for a static IP address, otherwise your website can randomly go offline with AWS if you are using a DNS provider like CloudflarePatrickGuest
AWS also has no team sharing feature, you have to give your actual login to any freelancers who are helping you with your servers which is insane.JustinGuest
I think some devs use AWS just to feel cool.MasonGuest
AWS also uses Xen virtualization, I think they announced changing to KVM recently but seems like they weren’t serious about it because they have their own Nitro hypervisor now which honestly they probably just stole from KVM and then rebranded
Everything in AWS is all about making things as proprietary as possible and then sign corporate contracts so that engineers are required to get “AWS certified” with all this weird tech that only Amazon uses… anyone who supports FOSS should avoid AWS whenever possible.SophiaGuestVincentGuest
Remember when AWS refused to sponsor Redis and when Redis called them out and changed to require enterprise licensing then AWS copied their software into a new proprietary software made only for AWS
that is Amazon in a nutshell, they hate the open webSamuelGuest
AWS billed some of my clients thousands of $$$ and my clients couldn’t figure out how to turn off all these secret services, and Support refused to help them.

I agree. AWS is overrated. But Lightsail is decent.
