As far as the reimplementation goes, I'm just glad that a lot of these hardcore necessary features (eg. the iso conversion) is based on a spec which should, theoretically, make it much easier to convert. You're not reinventing the wheel, you're just building it from another material...if that makes sense.
The AWS dashboard is absolutely overwhelming and I do feel like unless you spend time researching and learning the tech, it can be nearly impossible to make a right decision and decipher what all of it means. Like Cognito. I had no idea what it was until our company started getting into authentication providers. Or what's the difference between RDS and Aurora? Etc. It's A LOT.
And yeah, on top of that, all these cloud providers call these features by completely different names.
