Here’s a comparison between Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure. The comparison is on factors such as Power and Services.
In 2019, the lines between IaaS and PaaS will continue to blur. Organizations will need to develop the right strategies for deciding how to place or build an application on the right services, and how to manage across all IaaS and PaaS on a multi-provider basis.
Most organizations expect the cloud to be cheaper. To realize cost savings, they must move the right applications, optimize them properly and continuously track spending.
