Today’s most prominent cloud technologies
Amazon Web Services
Amazon was the pioneer of cloud storage and the industry’s original player. AWS launched in 2006 and currently contains over 70 cloud offerings, encompassing Compute, Storage, Database, Developer Tools, Network and Content Delivery, Security, Analytics, and Mobile Services. The cloud solution competes directly with Azure, and the two products are the premier solutions in the market.
Azure is a collection of cloud services including Compute, Storage, Database, and Networking. There are close to 50 individual offerings in the Azure platform. The cloud solution is based on Windows, so development can be done in the same languages used for building Windows apps (Visual Basic, C#, C++, T-SQL). Users can create apps using familiar Windows technologies like Visual Studio.
What makes them different
- AWS has more product offerings
- Since the beginning, AWS has been more friendly towards open source clients, whereas Azure is more attractive for existing Microsoft shops (this is actually changing, as Azure is trying to make itself more attractive to open source clients)
- Azure development tools are the customary Microsoft SQL/Developer tools like Visual Studio, SQL Server Management Studio
- Microsoft rounds up usage charges to the minute, while AWS rounds up to the hour
