  Same here.  Don't make the mistake of assuming my opinion is based on
a lack of experience with AWS.

  What "these kids today" don't seem to get is that it's "someone else's
computer".  In my world, that's about as reasonable as using someone
else's toothbrush.  I've had to mop up the remains of too many companies
who depended on outside services like that.  Amazon or not, I won't
trust them.  End of story.

  Ror this organization, it's not my decision to make; I can only offer
advice based on my professional experience.  I lead horses to water...If
they don't drink, I'm here to help if it blows up.
