Azure Vs AWS: The Cloud Battle: Part 2

In the second part of the series Azure Vs AWS: The Cloud Battle, we talk about the ease of use, the advantages you get being a Microsoft product consumer and the verdict.

Gentle Learning Curve

AWS is widely perceived as being complicated. This is evident by the numerous tutorials, user guides, and troubleshooting documents that are out there.

Conversely, Azure allows the utilization of the same tried and trusted technologies that several businesses have used in the past and are still using today. These include Windows and Linux, Active Directory, and virtual machines.

Build and iterate faster

Azure’s integrated tools and services help ISVs build applications faster; by contrast, Amazon Web Services puts the burden of integrating different services on their users.

 

The ‘Enterprise Agreement’ Advantage

If an organization already uses Microsoft software, then it likely has the ‘Enterprise Agreement’ with Microsoft. It is entitled to obtain discounts on the Microsoft software being used as Microsoft usually tweaks these agreements to lower the pricing of Azure. Thus, with the enterprise agreement, enterprises can typically obtain significant incentives for using Azure.

Ninety percent of Fortune 500 companies use Azure.

Digital Transformation Enabled by Cloud

Ever wondered what happens when creative, intelligent, and progressive people leverage the power of the cloud to gather and analyze information at a scale and depth that has never before been possible? What problem will be solved and what unfulfilled needs will be met as innovators and dreamers connect fresh insights with new digital capabilities?

The world is going through a digital transformation— customers and equipment alike.

Digital transformation has become a priority for all business, a crucial factor on which the future of the enterprise is dependent. They must succeed in creating transformation through technology, or they’ll face being marginalized (best case) or extinction (worst case) at the hands of their competitors.

Cloud is THE key technology enabler for Digital Transformation

Cloud isn’t as much of a technical shift as it is an ideological, philosophical and economic shift that has reimagined how we consume technology resources. It is already an essential part of the modern ecosystem.

For the digital evolution of an organization, the flexibility provided by a cloud-enabled infrastructure is indispensable. Used effectively, the cloud can bring a wide range of IT related and business benefits in terms of security, performance, greater efficiency, lower costs, new working practices and so on.

The cloud facilitates new ways of working, by providing the flexibility, ability to scale up or down, cost optimisation and elasticity, acting as a catalyst for innovation. Rapid agile development is also possible with a cost-effective, lower risk and faster platform.

Cloud adopters are much more likely to have achieved their digital business and infrastructure objectives compared with non-adopters. For non-adopters their ability to keep up with rapid digital change will be constrained by unstable and inflexible infrastructures, legacy systems and IT management approaches stuck in a pre-Cloud time warp.

Three Questions To Ask About Hybrid Cloud

Gone are those days, where cloud computing was the future. It’s here and it is changing the way you and thousands of other organizations do business at a great rate.

Migration to a hybrid cloud model is one of the latest trends that stands out. A hybrid cloud model uses multiple clouds for service – private, as a mix of on-premise and data center supported, and public environments, supported by third parties.

According to the TechPro Research, 36% of the companies who responded to their survey were already hybrid cloud users and 32% were considering to migrate. Industry statistics seem to support this trend, too.

Agility and flexibility are the main advantages that hybrid cloud offers. Workload can be managed on an application-by-application basis, this, in turn, enables enterprises to plan for a growing mobile workforce and allot resources to the Internet of Things (IoT) applications and big data analytics.

If your organization is already going hybrid or considering to migrate to hybrid, or if your IT prefers going to the cloud because it is easier than working through legacy IT service delivery systems — then ask yourself (and your broader IT organization) these three questions:

 

1. Do I want to optimize capacity by harnessing the power of automation?

Call it resource optimization on-premises. Call it lowering the monthly cloud bill.

The good news is — there is no issue here. It is all opportunity. You can use automation driving both software-defined data center technology and cloud APIs to be a better steward of your resources and funding.

2. Can I give our mobile workers secure remote access to our corporate cloud?

An access solution that compromises the mobile experience may be as bad as one that undermines security. If your security controls are hard to navigate, people may work around them to save time.

3. What network and data security policies does our cloud providers offer?

Security should be top of mind.

Start with the technology and systems that protect the cloud infrastructure. Then, look at the encryption of data transmissions. See how it defends data in transit.
