The Best Cloud Platform: Azure vs AWS Pricing
Cloud computing platforms are more than just shared, multi-tenant infrastructures on the public Internet. There are actually three infrastructure-as-a-service cloud deployment options available to enterprises today, each with unique characteristics and economics that can help optimize application and service deployment objectives.
However, when it comes to critical decisions on whether Azure or AWS , there has been speculation over a lot of factors, pricing being the most sensitive.
Microsoft Azure enables customers to extend their on-premises investments into the public cloud and choose from infrastructure or platform services, providing flexibility to choose the best solution for their needs.
With no upfront costs and pay for what you use model, you can now host websites and web apps on Azure at a minimal cost.
