Why would a customer choose DADI over AWS?
There are three key reasons why a customer would choose DADI over AWS:
DADI is already faster to develop on and faster to deploy to than just about any other platform. It will be faster in delivery as well: the distributed nature of the network gets content closer to customers than is possible in traditional, centralized setups.
DADI firmly believes that user experience is key to the success of technology. Design is – and has always been – as important to DADI as the technology itself.
DADI is designed to be accessible, simple and easy-to-use. The concepts may be complex, but the interfaces are not. The trick is to tame the complexity and deliver it simply. Because if people can do something effortlessly, they will.
Many comparable services fail in this regard. Amazon Web Services, DigitalOcean, Linode and Heroku often overwhelm with the number of configurations and options. It is important to DADI that people of all skill levels can use the technology effectively – from individual developers to enterprise system admins – and not feel as though they are picking at the internet with a pin.
DADI is an order of magnitude cheaper than AWS. Becuase we have very limited capital expenditure - we're not building data centres! - and because we're not driven by returning profit to a central business (instead distributing revenue throug the DAO), we can compete heavilly on price.
Typical cost savings will be 90% vs. Amazon AWS, when the full network comes online.
Is it possible to provide some charts for comparison? I see that whatcar.com still relies on AWS and Azure services and in your telegram message you've mentioned that the full network isn't yet live. Can you explain how much is implemented and what the specific gains are that make up the 65% savings? I'd also like to see how you've calculated the 90% savings comparison figure when compared to the major cloud service providers.
