AWS is highly discouraged for new SlickStack users, why is that?December 13, 2022 at 7:48 pm #3402SeanGuest
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 CloudflareDecember 13, 2022 at 7:51 pm #3403PatrickGuest
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.December 13, 2022 at 7:58 pm #3406JustinGuest
I think some devs use AWS just to feel cool.December 14, 2022 at 9:18 am #3414MasonGuest
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 rebrandedDecember 14, 2022 at 9:20 am #3415AlexisGuest
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.December 14, 2022 at 9:20 am #3416SophiaGuestDecember 17, 2022 at 11:18 am #3448VincentGuest
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 webJanuary 27, 2023 at 10:45 am #3987SamuelGuest
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.

AWS is the iPhone of cloud providers, it’s total gaslighting normies into thinking it’s some type of golden product when in reality its just lock-in with poor usability.December 4, 2023 at 7:34 am #10089SarahGuest

to be fair iPhone is probably way more ethical and usable than AWS
