Comparing AWS with Packet?
Amazon defined the cloud computing market with the launch of AWS and continues to offer a powerful, expansive walled garden approach to infrastructure and platform services. With hundreds or thousands of different pricing options and services levels, AWS offers a supermarket approach to cloud computing.
We respect AWS enormously for what they've built: a seemingly infinite platform that can perform at massive scale. It offers a great solution for many use cases - however, it has critical downsides that include complexity, vendor lock-in, noisy neighbors, and a focus on virtualization.
Our main shared feature is automation. In fact, our goal when starting the company was to bring an "AWS-like experience" to bare metal, so that developers (and their software) could consume dedicated infrastructure the same way they do other public cloud resources. From quick deploys (under 10 minutes) to deep integration with the DevOps ecosystem, AWS & Packet have a lot in common when it comes to consumption experience.
