Answers for AWS survey results for 2024

  • Answers for AWS survey results for 2024

    This is actually really useful data about which AWS services are good and which ones suck, as of right now. Some highlights: – Simple Queue Service (SQS) is the most loved AWS service with an overall positive/negative split of 98% [SNS also scoring very well]. – GitHub Actions wins every metric in the CI/CD category. – OpenAI has taken the top usage spot away from Amazon Sagemaker in the AI & Machine Learning category [no surprises there]. – ECS continues its reign as the most used container service. – DynamoDB’s dominance over the NoSQL DBs continues for the second year running. – The most polarizing service is CloudFormation – 30% would not use it ever again, while 56% would.
