Guess who is winning the cloud war between Microsoft Vs AWS

According to Goldman Sachs new survey about the current trend in the technology industry, Microsoft is now the most common cloud services provider and gradually gaining market share against major players such as the Amazon.

Goldman Sachs ‘ latest biannual IT Spending Survey of Chief Information Officers at large companies, first reported by CNBC, found that, while Amazon still leads cloud services in terms of overall sales and investment, Microsoft is the most popular provider and is gradually gaining market share.

More respondents reported using Azure software than Amazon Web Services (AWS) so far and the lead since the Goldman survey in December 2017 has increased. The study also reveals that more executives expect their businesses to use Azure in three years–including AWS.

Although Google and its cloud project remained a formidable third-place rival in the cloud wars, Goldman’s analysis showed that there had been a slight decrease in the momentum, as fewer people said they would use or will do so within three years.

For cloud computing proving to be a new growing phenomenon in the world of technology, this will lead to even more rivalry from big players, for example with the Pentagon JEDI (Joint Enterprise Defence Infrastructure) $10 billion contract earlier this year, where Microsoft won the Amazon offer. Wedbush analysts Daniel and Strecker Backe predicted that Microsoft and its CEO, Satya Nadella “would win the next step of the Cloud War” against Bezos and Amazon in 2020, with Azure’s success and increasing traction in the room of cloud services.

What is Serverless Computing?

Build Apps faster with Serverless Computing

Don’t Waste your time on maintaining servers

Serverless computing allows you to focus your efforts on business because the infrastructure you need to run and scale your apps is managed for you.

 

What is Serverless Computing?

Serverless computing is a cloud computing execution model in which the cloud provider dynamically manages the allocation of machine resource. Serverless computing is steered by the reaction to triggers and events happening in near-real-time–in the cloud. The code written by a developer is executed and only the precise amount of computing resources are taken to complete the task, no more, no less.

Infrastructure has always been an issue for developers. With Serverless computing they can circumvent administrative tasks and focus on business logic

serverless computing

 

 

  • Benefit from a fully managed service

 

Escape the burden of server maintenance. Avoid administrative tasks and focus on business logic. With serverless architecture, you simply deploy your code and it runs with high availability.

 

  • Scale flexibly

 

Serverless compute can handle tens of thousands of concurrent functions almost instantly (within seconds), to match any workload and without requiring scale configuration—it reacts to events and triggers in near-real time.

 

  • Only pay for resources you use

 

With serverless architecture, you only pay for the time your code is running. Serverless computing is event-driven and resources are allocated as soon as they are triggered by an event. You are only charged for the time and resources it takes to execute your code—through sub-second billing.

 

  • Enhance developer productivity

 

Leverage features such as local debugging in Visual Studio, visual debug history, deployment slots and more. To help developers maximize their efficiency, Microsoft serverless platform goes a step beyond abstracting server infrastructures to provide prolific features.

  • Seamless Connections

Fabricate modern apps by stitching together valuable and complementary functionality from various sources. Easily interact with a range of Azure functions, external services and logic apps to exploit on more than 100 connectors to Microsoft and third-party services.

 

 

  • Develop Intelligent Apps

 

Integrate intelligence into your apps with ease. With Azure, built-in intelligence is within the reach of all app developers. Enable your serverless code or logic to use Machine Learning and Cognitive Services.

Serverless computing is more cost-effective than purchasing the servers with required configurations

Azure Vs AWS: The Cloud Battle: Part 1

If you have been following cloud updates and news for a while you’d be aware of the cloud war between Azure and AWS. Experts have been going back and forth on the features, capacity, strengths and weaknesses of each platform. Despite all the debate, there is no clear consensus.

Concerns over data sovereignty and privacy have been addressed by Azure as well as AWS. This has fueled the market (Iaas) to value at a total of 45 billion dollars by 2018 according to the most recent gartner report.

Azure and AWS offer similar basic capabilities around flexible storage and networking. They all share the basic characteristics of a public cloud: self service, identity management, autoscaling e.t.c

Albeit, from an end user’s perspective, there are numerous differentiating factors that separate the approaches of the 2 firms

Microsoft Azure serves over 140 countries with more than 100 data centers worldwide.

When you compare Azure and AWS, you will find that Azure has more comprehensive compliance coverage with more than 70 compliance offerings and was the first major cloud provider to contractually commit to the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

In addition, Azure IP Advantage provides best-in-industry intellectual property protection so you can focus on innovation, instead of worrying about baseless lawsuits.

 

Paas Capabilities

To build and deploy new cloud services, Microsoft Azure provides application developers with the environment tools and building blocks. It also provides the vital ‘dev-ops’ connections which are important for monitoring, managing, and continually fine-tuning those apps. Azure Paas solutions allow for a cent percent focus on innovation, with the infrastructure management taken care behind the scenes

On the other hand, AWS is probably not the first cloud service that comes to mind when you think of Platform-as-a-Service. AWS has blurred the line between Iaas and Paas. They have started to offer services that some might say feel — and act — more like a platform as a service.

If you’re confused, you’re not alone.

 

.Net Compatibility

Azure’s compatibility with  .Net programming language is one of the most useful benefits of Azure, which gives Microsoft a clear upper hand over AWS and the rest of the competitors.It is much easier and straightforward for enterprises to move their Windows apps to Azure Cloud as opposed to AWS or others. Thus for the several organizations that use .Net based enterprise apps, Azure is the obvious choice.

AWS supports Windows, SQL Server and other technologies that are used by .NET developers. Amazon AWS has a great SDK for .NET.

 

Hybrid solutions for Seamless Cloud Connectivity

While Amazon is still testing the hybrid waters, Azure already has its hybrid capabilities in place. It seamlessly connects datacenters to the Cloud. Azure provides a consistent platform which facilities easy mobility between on-premises and the public Cloud.

 

Integrated Environment

Azure provides the user with an integrated environment for developing. Testing and deploying cloud apps. Client has the power to choose the framework and further flexibility is added by open development languages for azure migration.Moreover, to kickstart Azure application development, readymade services (web, mobile, media, APIs and templates) can be leveraged.

AWS also allows development and test on workloads, it also allows you to to remove hardware-based resource constraints to quickly create developer environments and expand your testing machine fleet.

Azure’s flexible toolset is ideal for solving integration needs ranging from connecting mobile apps with on-premises LOB systems, to coordinating B2B payments with partners.
