Between AWS and Azure, what is your platform of choice? What makes it your preferred platform?

There are a set of open questions and decisions to prefer one or another cloud, just a few of that:

1. Region availability (to store sensitive data like payments or PHI data locally) - both providers have a set of not overlapping regions.

2. Specific services - both providers propose some unique services for test/voice recognition, IoT, machine learning, integration with different CDNs, etc.

3. Price - providers or resellers could propose various discounts based on your needs, grants, and other cost-reducing offers.

4. Technology stack and current infrastructure: AWS is more-less platform-agnostic and has a richer set of available services. Azure has more integration with Microsofts stack (Azure Active Directory, .NET support, and others).

From my understanding both platforms provide reliable storage  services. AWS has services like  EBS, Glacier and AWS S3 while Azure storage services blob storage, disk storage and archives. AWS S3 provides high availability and automatic replication across regions. Azure uses temporary storage and page blobs for VM volume.

Azure if you are/want to continue to be a tight-knit microsoft shop (.net/outlook/forms/mssql)

AWS if you are/want to be the next-gen open-source distributed shop with pre-tested reliable components

Both the cloud providers provide you slimier functions and features but Its depend on your application tech stack type if it is based on Microsoft .net and you require to use specific Microsoft components so you should go with Azure because it will cost you high on AWS and if it is linux based or more opensource you should considered AWS instead of Azure.

What is PaaS Clouds?

According to the IT Central Station community, security is the most important criteria when selecting a Platform as a Service vendor (PaaS Cloud). PaaS clouds vary in the level of abstraction they provide their consumers. There are tradeoffs between efficiency and control over the application. Other key considerations are: the degree to which it will integrate seamlessly with the rest of the enterprise platform, the speed and resilience of internetworking, and the extent to which the platform is under control for configuration purposes.
