The only reason for not going for the upgrade is that Magento commerce is paid while the opensource is free of cost. Otherwise, since there is always a constraint for storage memory, cloud-based services are always perfect.
So I eventually went for Magento 2 Commerce (enterprise) on-prem solution.
Now my site has been crashing constantly for a few weeks. I've raised a ticket with Enterprise support, forget about a solution, they are not even responding to the P1 outage ticket. It's open for over 2 weeks now.
@Shankx If you're on-prem with Magento Commerce (as opposed to being on Magento Cloud Commerce), has your host been able to help?
While I agree that response times for Magento Commerce support can leave a lot to be desired, it doesn't sound like Magento themselves are the cause of your site crashing. There are lots of Magento Commerce users utilizing the same code base that you are without that outcome, especially on-prem users. From what I've seen, you'd be more likely to go down on Cloud because they can't autoscale (where some on-prem hosts can), but in general, if you're on-prem, you're most likely experiencing an issue that relates to your sites specific configuration and customizations, or your host, neither of which would typically fall under Magento's support.
@Shankx That additional information is extremely important. Without knowing that your host and top-tier Magento partnered agency found a bug or anomaly that you're waiting to hear back on, it would have seemed like you were going in the wrong direction.
I sincerely wish that Magento's support team was more responsive. My intent wasn't to come off suggesting that I don't think that they should do more. Perhaps I've just become used to what I've historically experienced with support.
I'd also suggest that AWS Business support can be pretty generic, and does not necessarily specialize in Magento. You might want to seek a one-time consult from Magento AWS experts. Again, I don't know what I don't know regarding what you've already done. Just suggesting the typical best-path to success.
This is very frustrating and very unprofessional behaviour from Magento Cloud.
I have been struggling to get issues resolved , the high priority P1 ticket is not resolved from 3 days,
every time, a different agent replies and repeats same thing with out reading what is going on with the ticket.
agents are not at all experienced and they work on their time zone only.
Very very very frustrated.. I would definitely not recommends CLOUD.
