What are some of the hurdles for enterprises when considering adopting AWS Cloud?

As a decision maker, you are concerned about storing confidential data and proprietary data in an external environment. AWS, however, can offer network firewalls, encryption and different connectivity options (private or dedicated) for high level security capabilities.
AWS Support fees can be high if you need quick resolution to your issues and have a high monthly usage. The cost gets higher if you need a dedicated tech support person to support integration with third part plugins.
Uptime and performance mean a lot (even a second to load a website can impact sales of an e-commerce website). These two factors are also critical for your SEO and brand as well.
