Colin Eberhardt discusses the his experience porting a service from AWS to Ethereum, and how Ethereum fared in comparison.
- Ethereum was much more expensive than AWS, gas prices were unpredictable, and that the technology was not really decentralized
- Ethereum was slow, lacked many of the conventional infrastructure concepts, and that the wallet software was difficult to use
- Testnets were also found to be unreliable
- Conclusion? Ethereum is not a viable alternative to public cloud
