Qovery - the ultimate AWS web console for SaaS startups
AWS is undoubtedly one of the best Cloud service providers to run serious business out there. Reliable and cost-effective. No doubt here. But something utterly wrong with AWS is the experience on their web management console. It is so bad that thousands of developers come using Qovery every month with the only promise of - a better developer experience on top of AWS. Here are the 7 reasons why Qovery is an excellent choice for SaaS startups.
Disclaimer: I am Romaric, CEO and co-founder of Qovery. This post can sound like a sales speech, but I am a backend developer myself, and if I had the chance to have a product like Qovery for my last SaaS startup, I would have saved 18 months on my product roadmap. I wish you not to waste this precious time and see if Qovery fits your need.
No infrastructure knowledge is needed.
As a developer, you know how precious your time is - you are better to develop your product than doing the plumbing job between AWS services to deploy your apps. Qovery results from years of infrastructure and product experience to provide a web interface understandable by junior and experienced developers.
