Mehdi Daoudi is founder and CEO of Catchpoint, a SaaS-based performance monitoring company, and he's interested in the new AWS offering. Catchpoint currently uses a managed hosting provider as its core data center. "This is a game changer," he says. Daoudi has looked into other providers but none have been able to offer both the compute capacity combined with the geographic availability that AWS has. He's not yet sure if he'll convert to AWS, but he says the Catchpoint team will be investigating it. He's hopeful the high-capacity offering could allow Catchpoint to consolidate into a smaller number of compute servers hosting his application.
