Some services are unique. EMR and RDS are not. Others are not.

Outsource if you want. When your bill hits $500k/mo and you realize you're paying for things you can do yourself, your position may change.

Have you been through an AWS outage and been paged? It happens. When you realize your business depends on an opaque organization you may want to diversify.

If you're small it makes sense to outsource sometimes. Not always and not forever.
