I am working on Microsoft Azure from quite some time now and I always wanted to teach myself the Cloud counterpart of it Amazon AWS. In my early days of AWS (it’s still early), I realize that the offerings from both the cloud provider are quite similar with a different name and some different features. So if you know Azure you can quickly ramp up on AWS and Vice Versa.
Some people argue that why there is a need to learn about multiple cloud providers, it’s important to understand that we are in an Era of “Hybrid Cloud”. Big organizations are no more worried about moving to the cloud but they are worried about using what services of which cloud Provider and keep which services In-house. It’s a very challenging task to architect for the Cloud because you need to consider multiple factors like cost of the service and performance of the service and how well it gel up with the technology stack that your application is built upon.
Now to help myself with the comparison, I have created a quick cheat sheet to just go through the most used counterpart services offered by AWS as compared to Azure. I am sharing the cheat sheet below
Not all Azure services offer the best performance for every need and same is the case for the AWS so we need to make the wisest decision while architecting for the Cloud.I will recommend to go through the comparisons before making any decision.
