The sole purpose of the introduction of Cloud services to business had been: to mitigate the overhead of establishing a full fledge infrastructure and its maintenance. In 2018, there are many options for businesses, like Microsoft Azure, Open Stack, Google Cloud Platform etc, when it comes to cloud computing. Businesses tend to go for hybrid solutions, if not one sole provider of IaaS. But in reality, Microsoft has developed its cloud services so versatile and cost effective with its Azure Cloud Computing services that it has become one of the most competent players in the market. Let’s have a closer look.
Azure vs AWS vs Openstack
Like Microsoft Azure, all cloud computing services are not just simple back-end Infrastructure providing services. They are much more than that. Not only storage and computing are necessary by business but the most important factor Security is always under question. Business computing is critical, but the approach of using sets of virtual machines for parallel computing, makes it insecure. That is a big limitation with open source cloud services like open-stack. Another service, Amazon Cloud services (AWS), is a pretty much know-it-all like Azure, in the field of cloud computing. However, this wide variety of services that AWS offers are sometimes seen as complicated to manage and business prefer to not indulge them with AWS complicated systems and interlinked services. They offer more than 100 products like Analytics, Compute, Migration etc. which cover 6 to 7 solutions like: Disaster Recovery, Archiving etc. In comparison to that, Microsoft Azure is simple and a complete solution. Microsoft offers an array of features that covers all of the solutions like Digital Marketing, Big Data analysis and many more. Another drawback of going for AWS is that, like Open Stack, their security and data hiding between businesses, on virtual machines sets, is still in question. Whereas Microsoft Azure has a high degree of certifications, that is: more certifications than any other IaaS Provider, making it the most trusted Cloud Service Provider for its clients.
Azure Vs GCP
Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is another service that is striving hard to compete with the already flourishing Cloud providers in the market where Azure has made big name. Being the latest of all popular Cloud providers, GCP has the lowest number of data centers. On the other hand, Microsoft Azure has a wide range of data centers hence enhancing its feature of availability.
When it comes to Pricing, Azure takes the lead. Not only, Microsoft’s CSP is a cost-effective solution than GCP or AWS, but it also enhances the features as number of users increase. Its pay-as-you-go billing model is ideal for businesses where they do not have to make a minimum purchase in order to get the services continually. The subscriptions can be cancelled any time and discounts are offered to clients who pay upfront. Hence the general verdict is that Microsoft Azure is the strongest proposition for businesses in 2018 and beyond.
